Hi

I have a s reg 1.9td van, just lately when I switch on the ignition it all comes on but when the glow plug light goes out I switch to start the van but nothing happens,

If I jiggle the wires that go into the back of the ignition switch whilst holding the key turned it will start.

My question is has anyone got any ideas what it is. Wiring? Switch? It also happens occasionally on my cousins van to.

Thanks

cool.

oh, if the spare switch you have has a little mechanism on side, it should still fit, but you need to push key more into the barrel as turning to engage it, we also found that bit out after installing it.

Managed to remove the old ignition switch went to put the new one in but it seems to be a slightly differant shape. My van is a 1998 s reg and has a white switch the spare I have is from a 1997 p reg caravelle and is black.

Anyway had to put old one back in until I can find the right one.
