Customer Question

I have 94 Buick park ave. For last yr. when starting it up I have to push the key toward the steering column to get it to start. now it starts sometimes & sometimes it doesn't. Auto
Zone told me I probably need a new ignition switch. Do you agree or disagree? when I insert key all the lights on dash light up but it will not start, will not make a sound. Later on if I try to start it, some times it starts up immediately, Do I need ignition switch or do I need something else?

I can get the instructions for it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as possible.
