Looks like the ignition switch was taken or broken off. The switch mounts on the side there on the back side of where the key goes in. Does it look like the wiring is actually damaged?

The place where the key goes in is totally broken off.

Or i should say pulled completely out
Mechanic for Honda: EricFromCT, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok. At this point it appears you will need to get a replacement steering column with a new ignition switch and key cylinder housing. The best bet would be from a junk yard that would probably come with a housing and switch. Your other option is to call your insurance company and see if they can have it fixed. You may have a deductable.

I meant to say earlier where the housing and switch mount to the column are broken, so you can not bolt on new ones to get a replacement column. Otherwise if you can bolt on a new housing and switch you may be able to just replace those.

The ignition specialist said 400$ is that right?
Mechanic for Honda: EricFromCT, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

All pricing is different but That sounds really reasonable.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
