Ignition switch damaged

I have a KIA Picanto 2007 and the ignition switch is damaged and it is not available as a spare part here in my country. Now I have the 6 wires in my hand so I want to know how these 6 couloured wires are connected to get the four positions of the normal switch ( Off , Accessories , On , Start ) . Which connects to which in each position so I can run my car. Thanks very much. Nour

You will need test light/probe to check what wire does what.First one wire will have permanant 12v,that is your base wire.Use that wire to test the others.the next wire to find is accesory wire,turn radio on and join to the 12v wire each wire until radio works.if when checking the starter tries to turn that is the starter wire.The 4th wire to test is ignition wire(power to coil)plug test light/probe into positive coil wire in the engine bay and it will light up when you join the right wire to your 12v power.That leaves 2 wires wich are usualy headlights dash etc.If you tag/label as you find each wires function it makes it easier to join to after maket key.To get vehicle to run join 12v to ignition/coil wire and touch starter wire to 12v until running then remove.When stopped do not leave 12v and coil/ignition wire joined as it will eventualy destroy ignition/coil.Good luck and hope it helps

Kia picanto 1100 starts but doesnt want to rev up

Hi,there is a common fault on these cars,that is the cranksharft snaps just behind the crank timing gear,this causing the ignition timing to run at minus and thus the car gets spark after petrol has been injected.the car will run rich and also damage the plugs.the pick up sensor can also be faulty.this can all be checked by taking the bottom cover off and checking,except the sensor has to be checked with diagnostis scanner.most likely it is the broken crank.if u in the Durban area I can help you.
