The pop-out ignition switch requires that after the switch pops out, the key must be held to the left in order to make proper contact and engage the starter motor circuit.
Obviously there is a contact problem. Are parts available? I could try pulling it down and having a look, has anyone done this, and how tricky is it? I have a parts/schematic which gives me a bit of a clue.
It's not exactly obvious how to get into it.
Regards,
John

Don't know of anyone selling parts for electrolocks. They are not too complicated to repair but you must be careful as some parts can easily be destroyed. There are a few people that can repair them and have a limited supply of parts. Don't know of any selling parts.

Hi Chipper,
Do you have any contact names for repairers.

Will send you a PM. Don't know any in OZ but likely there is someone. Maybe this post will be seen and a suggestion be made.
