Can the ignition switch for an 83 240D 205 K miles wear out to the point that it doesnt complete the circuit12 V to the starter solenoid?
Once in a while, I had to jumper the solenoid because car wouldnt start 50% of time by switch.
I finally ran a new violet white wire from the switch to the solenoid, and everything was great for 3 weeks--until when else--today at carpool.. Either the crimp came loose, (havent looked yet) but does the switch go bad?
If so, how do I order an identical keyed switch?
