I have a 2010 Ford Escape with 95,000 miles.
I have a problem with the car that when I put the key in and turn, the car doesn't crank. The lights come on when the key is turned, but there's no sound and the lights do not flicker.
I understand this problem to be the ignition switch. I had a garage tell me that it was months ago.
So today I went to have it fixed at a different place and the mechanic told me that it was not the switch, but the switch and lock cylinder.
Does this make sense? I don't have any issues turning the key, but to start the car I basically have to push the key in and turn.
I called a locksmith to get a price on the cylinder and he tells me it's not the cylinder, but something electrical like the starter.
I'm trying to avoid paying any more than needed, but I can't seem to get a straight answer.
