That Mazda car or SUV you love to drive -- it should start up and run like the day you first stepped into the driver's seat; wouldn't you agree? Its factory ignition helps make sure it does.
How Does One Work?
It's a straightforward process, one that begins when the key turns in the ignition lock cylinder. An ignition switch triggers, the car battery, starter motor, starter solenoid, and ignition coil start working, and your vehicle gets going.
What these parts do is work together to send a small electric charge, or "spark," to each of the spark plugs atop your engine's cylinder head. Their leads capture the electricity, using it to combust the oxygen and gas inside the engine. As the mix burns, it produces the power the engine (and thus, everything else) runs on. Your alternator then keeps your ride running.
What are the Signs of Problems with One?
Having trouble starting can mean your ignition is going bad -- that is, if it hasn't otherwise failed outright. To figure out what might be happening, run a thorough inspection, looking for a few telltale symptoms of trouble. They include:
- Flickering lights on the dashboard
- The key refusing to turn in the cylinder
- Being unable to start your vehicle at all
If you end up needing an ignition replacement, be sure you buy genuine parts for the job.
