    Default ignition problem

    Hi. I am having problems with my ignition. When I turn the key to position 2 all the lights and radio, etc come on but when I try and crack my car sometimes nothing happens and I have to turn the key back and forth until it starts. As a result of turning the key back and forth the airbag light has now come on. Any suggests on how to fix this problem. sonething to keep in mind, my heater blower has broke to. It only works on 4, I have tested the resister and control panel in another car and both work in that. Is this problem linked?

    Easy stuff first, check the battery voltage (I'm not sure the required voltage, but it should be around 12V),
    Does the engine make any sound at all? I know on mine when the battery is dead (reading 11ish volts), it tries to crank but not enough to turn the engine over

    The battery is fairly new, but I will check it anyway. This problem seems to be more with the barrel than the electrics. Its like as though its not catching.

    Sounds more to me like the ignition switch is knackered rather than the barrel.

    Are they still mounted at the end of the barrel?
