What Is the Ignition Switch and How Should It Be Used?


Ignition switch can be seen from its literal meaning as a switch used to ignite something. With the continuous development of the economy, cars have become a necessity for every household. The ignition switch is a device that must be installed on a car and can also be seen in many electrical appliances. Today, we will introduce in detail what is an ignition switch and how to use it.


What is an ignition switch?


An ignition switch is actually a system switch, usually used with a key to function as a switch. It usually allows the main circuit of the ignition coil to be freely turned on or off, and can also be used for other electronic circuits.


There are many types of ignition switches, commonly used in household gas stoves, gas lighters, and gas water heaters. Larger household appliances include motorcycles, cars, and ignition switches for launching satellites, missiles, and various spacecraft, all of which are closely related to ignition switches.


How to use the ignition switch in a car?


First, insert the key into the ignition switch, and pause for a moment in each gear, about 1-2 seconds, during which you can hear the sound of various electrical equipment being turned on, and then move to the next gear.


There are usually four states for the ignition switch on a car, and the correct ignition switch has LOCK, ACC, ON, and START, a total of four gears. After locking the car, the key will usually be in the LOCK state, which not only locks the direction of the car, but also cuts off the power of the whole car. The ACC state is to connect the power supply of each equipment in the car, such as air conditioning, CD, navigation, etc. The ON state means that all circuits of the car are in working condition. The START gear is the gear for starting the engine.


Each gear among these four gears progresses in order, which is to allow all the equipment in the car to enter a working state one by one, thereby relieving the burden on the car battery caused by instant power-on. If there is no pause in each gear, the burden on the car battery will be suddenly increased. Therefore, this operation mode is very unfavorable for the engine and the battery, and habitual operation in this way will shorten the service life of the battery.


The above content is about the introduction of ignition switches and the instructions for using the ignition switch in cars. If you have a car at home, you may know something about the ignition switch. We believe that after reading the above content, you will be more proficient in using a car.
