Replacement Ignition Lock Assembly Information
Choose from top brands including: Genuine, Beck Arnley and Original Equipment.
The ignition lock assembly on your car is comprised of two separate parts; the lock cylinder, which - in cars manufactured after about 2000 -- uses a passkey to help prevent theft, and an electrical part called the ignition switch that passes power to devices such as wipers, electric windows, door locks and the radio. The ignition switch also sends power to the starter motor when you turn the key. The ignition lock is where you insert the key to start the car and locks the steering wheel until the key is inserted and turned to the "on" position. The steering wheel cannot be rotated without the key in the "on" position, which means a thief cannot drive off with the car just by hot-wiring it. If the ignition lock assembly -- either part -- breaks, it means that you won't be able to drive the car until it's repaired. The ignition lock itself cannot be repaired and must be replaced, usually by a mechanic with the proper tools and knowledge. If the electrical part of the assembly breaks, it is possible to replace it in most vehicles without disturbing the ignition lock. A broken ignition lock assembly can show up in a variety of ways. You may notice that it's getting harder to turn the key to start the car - almost like the key doesn't fit anymore. Sometimes the steering wheel jams after the car starts and you have trouble moving it. The problems can be intermittent as the assembly fails, which means that sometimes the car will start without a problem and other times the engine won't start or may keep running even after you turn off the key. Because a broken or failing ignition lock assembly is very annoying and will make your car unreliable, you'll probably want to take it to your mechanic for diagnosis and repair as soon as you notice the problem.
A Beck Arnley Ignition Lock Assembly provides a mechanism for deterring theft by making it hard to steer the vehicle unless you have the right key.

Did the job for the price.....fast delv..
I recently installed a new ignition / steering lock on my 1974 2002 BMW from Partsgeek. It fit perfectly and works great. I was happy and suprised to find such a rare piece of for such an old car.
Worked perfectly. Great fit easy to install. And above all else GREAT PRICE!!!!!!
This is just what I needed. I would have given it 5 stars but it too 2 weeks to get here. Other than that it works great.
