About Mercedes Ignition Switch
If your ignition is not making the engine turn over, it may be that your Mercedes ignition switch is bad and in need of replacement. These switches can wear out over time, especially in older vehicles. In a Mercedes, you may be able to use a universal ignition switch, but this is dependent on the model of the vehicle. Some require very specific switches to work properly. The switches are usually metal, but there are plastic options, with some switches combining both plastic and metal. If any part of the plastic cracks or wears down significantly, this can cause problems with the switch as a whole. Before purchasing a switch, you should compare the new one with the old one to ensure a proper fit because there are over a dozen different switch sizes and shapes that can go into a Mercedes. These switches also work as anti-theft devices and to lock the steering wheel, so it is important to have one that works.
