A thoughtful car, truck, or SUV owner regularly inspects his or her vehicle to ensure it is in proper working order. A vehicle owner needs to be aware of signs that something is not functioning properly, including the ignition system. There are some important signs that an ignition system is in need of service.

A grinding noise when the key is turned is a sign an ignition system needs professional service. This sound is indicative of a worn-out or malfunctioning drive gear. A whining noise when the key is turned may mean that the ignition system is "freewheeling." This means the starter gear is not properly engaging the flywheel.
