      Since the ignition switch is what prompts the engine to start, the surest symptom of a problematic ignition switch is when the vehicle is unable to start. If the car either does not start at all, or takes several tries to start, it may be the symptom of a faulty or bad ignition switch. If the headlights and dashboard lights go on but the vehicle doesn’t start, this is another clear sign of a bad ignition switch. Since it is the battery and not the ignition switch that turns on the headlights, if the engine won't turn on but the headlights and dashboard lights will, your problem is most likely caused by an ignition switch. Another symptom of a bad ignition switch occurs when the switch gets short circuited and heats up. If the switch is impossible to touch with the hands, it is a sign that the ignition switch is facing a problem rooted in the vehicle’s electrical and wiring system. The ignition switch is connected to a series of high-resistance wires. Any of the terminals connecting these can heat up. This results in arcing of the terminal(s), which further heats up to the extent that it melts the bakelite insulating base. From there, the wiring directly next to the ignition switch can heat up. When this happens, the vehicle jerks and doesn’t start despite repeated turning of the switch.
