This is common on GM vehicles and may be due to a failed or failing security/antitheft system.

2000 Hyundai Excel ignition lock problem


What most people refer to as the "Ignition switch" is really the "cylinder lock", that when turned with the key, operates the actual "ignition switch".
The switch causing your problem is inside the steering column, and the column needs to be at least partly disassembled to access it.

Ignition cylinder car not start


It can be the problem with ignition cylinder or faulty ignition switch causing this problem.But if you notice no start problem on your car,then there are many other possibilities too. No start problem.This is many a times caused by weak battery or faulty battery, or can be possible that battery to starter connection is loose or faulty starter itself.First the battery to start and both battery and starter voltage needs to be checked and confirmed.If that is checked ok, then other possibilities like faulty spark plugs, faulty fuel pump etc etc needs to be checked.

Can worn out ignition switch cause the battery to drain down when car is off and setting for 2 or 3 days?


Yes the faulty ignition switch can definitely drain the battery.Because actually the car is not got completely off.You inserted the key in the ignition switch and turned it to off.But because the ignition switch is faulty the car did not turned off.It remained ON.The other possibility is that the ignition switch is got internally short and causing this problem.There are many other possibilities too for this battery getting drained when car is off.But as per your question which you asked,yes.If the ignition switch is faulty then car battery gets drained even when the car is off. ---------- Get the ignition switch checked by meter and confirm the fault. --------- Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a 91 f250 with 7.5 liter and no spark. where may the problem be?


Use a test light and check to see if there is battery voltage present at the "Pos" (+) or positive side of the ignition coil when the key is in the "Run" position if no battery voltage is present at the ignition coil when the key is in the "Run" position then there is a power supply or wiring problem to the ignition coil, and if there is battery voltage at the "Pos" side of the ignition coil, then with the test light on the "Neg" (-) or negative side of the ignition coil crank the engine over. The test light should flash or pulse indicating that there is a dwell signal to the ignition coil, and if there is battery voltage to the "Pos" side of the ignition coil and there is a dwell signal to the "Neg" side of the ignition coil, and there is still no spark from the ignition coil, then the ignition coil is faulty. If there is battery voltage to the "Pos" side of the ignition coil, and there is no dwell signal to the "Neg" side of the ignition coil, then the Ignition module, or the pick-up coil/stator would be the most likely cause of the problem.

Check to see if that ignition system actually used an ignition module on the side of the distributor, and if the distributor does have an ignition module mounted on the side of it, then it is most likely faulty and those modules were prone to failure from excessive engine heat. Also, remove the distributor cap and inspect the connector from the pick-up coil/stator where the ignition module connects to it, and if the connector is dark or burnt looking then also replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. You might need a Ford ignition module wrench to remove the ignition module from the side of the distributor and most auto part stores will have one for only a few dollars.

Here are some images to assist you and notice the white connector on the ignition pick-up coil/stator and when that connector turns dark or burnt looking then it is faulty.

Ignition module


Hi...
The Ignition module of your Century.
Is located UNDER THE IGNITION COILS.
The ignition coils are tie on the ignition module.
But LET ME tell you, something about your problem with the battery,
The Ignition Module is the LESS posible to Drain the Battry,
Because only use 3 connector, and the Ign. module is powered
with the ignition switch, is mean when you Turn the key to OFF.
All the power of the Ign. module Cut off.
If the ignition has no power when the car is OFF, impossible
Drain the battery,

I recomend check that all the lights went off after you close all the doors. Check the glove box light, Trunk light.
Some times the Factory Radio on chevys give up this problem, If the car is equipaded with a Aftermarket alarm.
You should check the circuit.

I'm a mechanic,
I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
