Q:what purpose does the ignition lock cylinder serve
A:The Ignition Lock Cylinder is part of the Ignition Lock Assembly. This part requires a coded Ignition Key for vehicle operation. A broken ignition lock makes it difficult to turn the key.When the key is inserted into the ignition switch lock cylinder and turned to the on position, it turns on all of the car's systems, including systems such as the fuel pump, because this is the position the ignition switch remains in while the car's engine is running. The start position is spring loaded so that the ignition switch will not remain there when the key is released. When the key is inserted into the ignition switch lock cylinder and turned to the start position, the starter engages; when the key is released, it returns to the on position, cutting power to the starter. This is because the engine runs at speeds that the starter cannot match, meaning that the starter gear must be retracted once the engine is running on its own.
