This is the ignition switch that mounts inside the steering column.

  • Common Problems
  • Damaged during a theft attempt
  • No start condition occur because the junction block contacts corrode and short out.
  • No start condition because the contacts in the rotating upper assembly wear out
  • While Driving your gauges and dash lights flicker as if the vehicle shuts off for a brief second

If your vehicle is having issues when starting such as the power comes on in the car when you turn the key on but then the engine does not turn over or if accessories don't seem to work and you've checked things like the battery and fuses this part may be your problem. If your contacts are corroded you can clean them but once the protective coating is gone then they will most likely corrode again quicker and possibly short out. If you are having problems with this part then fix it right the first time.

  • Mounts inside the steering column and connects to the lock cylinder and main column harness, When the key cylinder is turned, it turns the switch on this harness that sends the electrical single to start the vehicle

fit like the old part
shipping was fast and part fit just like the old one. Replacement video was a little off. In video it shows a 99 model. Mine was a 97 model and did not have the bolts on top of steering column. Had to break old part to get it out and remove cover on new part to get it to fit back in.

Fits 1998 Honda Prelude type SH
It fits my Honda Prelude PERFECTLY!

I was having issues with the car stalling on startup, and stalling without warning while I was driving. This was due to the electrical contacts being worn out on the original ignition switch, thus causing the electrical current to cut out and, subsequently stalling my car without warning... While I'm driving, on the throttle, just cruising. Very dangerous if it happened while I was turning out into a gap in traffic.

I called Honda, we ran my VIN and they said that the ignition switch had been replaced already... hah, bullsh*t. Well, maybe the one they replaced it with wore out.

For a total cost after shipping and taxes of $50 CAD, I took things into my own hands. It was worth every cent.

Don't be afraid of installing this people, it's dead easy. I know nothing about cars and I still did it.

Just make sure you have an L-shaped Phillips screwdriver on hand or something of the sort if your car is a Prelude -- I had one HELL of a screw to deal with.

1A Auto, your shipping prices are abysmal but you guys rock. Thank you for helping me make my car safer :)

BEST ANSWER: If there are no screws holding this piece on, we would ask if there is a separate screw, or rivet. This will be required to remove the switch from your vehicle.
