Ignition Lock Cylinder

An Ignition Lock Cylinder is a mechanical device that is part of a vehicle’s ignition system. It is designed to prevent unauthorized access to a vehicle by requiring a specific key to be inserted and turned in order to start the engine.
The Ignition Lock Cylinder is an important component of a vehicle’s security system, as it prevents unauthorized access to the vehicle and protects against theft.
The Ignition Lock Cylinder has been a standard feature in most vehicles for several decades, with the first car ignition locks dating back to the early 1900s.
The Ignition Lock Cylinder is typically located on the steering column, dashboard, or in some cases, on the center console of the vehicle.
The Ignition Lock Cylinder is connected to a series of tumblers inside the lock mechanism, which are designed to match the shape of the key. When the correct key is inserted and turned, the tumblers align to allow the lock cylinder to turn, which in turn allows the engine to start. If an incorrect key is inserted or an attempt is made to force the lock, the tumblers will not align and the Ignition Lock Cylinder will not turn, preventing the engine from starting.
