Fairly simple to install, but that's no rating of the product its self. The dorman switch wasn't available, so I bought the lower cost unit we see here. The first thing I noticed, was that the ignition key did not turn as smoothly as it had before, but the old switch had 15 years to break in. Since it only took about 30 min to install, Ill give it a little time, and buy a different brand if operation doesn't improve over time.

          Comments about BWD Ignition Starter Switch:

          I installed this part and the feel was very "notchy", not smooth like the OEM. It was so bad that I returned it for a replacement. The replacement was better, but still not good enough. Ended up getting a different brand elsewhere and eating this switch.

                The battery on my Dodge truck was being drained, even after the key was pulled out. suspected it would be the ignition switch.Got it replaced with the aforementioned product and it seems to have taken care of the issue.So far so good!

                        point your finger at the ignition key hole opening as though you were sticking your finger into the key hole. Now Follow that finger straight through the steering column to the other side. Bingo

                    • Q:

                      could this switch cause a/c blower to stay on when key is off position and removed then when key is installed and slightly turned toward unlock position blower turns off as it should?

                        Yes, this switch can be one of many reasons for your blower to remain on, or to turn off intermittently. I bought this switch to fix the later situation, and it solved my issue. My fan will come on and remain on as long as the key is turned. no more pounding on the wheel to start it back up again.

                        Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.
