Your Ford's ignition system is a critical part of the vehicle that should be maintained and checked on a regular basis to ensure your car is operating efficiently. There are a lot of parts at work as a part of this system. The solenoid sits atop the starter motor and is responsible for connecting and disconnecting the starter from the system. The solenoid's plunger is attached to the motor drive shaft via a lever. When the ignition key is turned, the solenoid coil is energized, pulling the plunger in and moving the lever out along the now-spinning motor shaft. This drives a pinion gear out to engage with the engine flywheel to crank the engine until it starts. Over time, ignition components will start to wear out. It's important to recognize the symptoms of a failing ignition in order to prevent serious issues before or during travel. Several things can occur. Your dashboard lights may flicker or seem dimmer when your car is running. Stuttering and failure to start are also common, signaling the something in the ignition needs replacing ASAP. You may also have difficult turning the ignition or inserting/removing the key. In these circumstances, replacing the Ford ignition with OEM standard parts is the best option. OEM components are factory standard and maintain manufacturer specifications, ensuring easy installation and quality. You can purchase OEM Ford ignition parts at our online store.
