Key!

Anyone experience trouble with the ignition switch? I just found out that mine as a problem. If I touch the key, even just touch it, it stop the engine.. Any guess? Can it be mended? I rather repair then change the unit..

Thanks

Your Ignition Switch innards may have come apart (the glue isn't the best in really hot or cold I've seen).

Here was my thread on the switch, with pics, etc.

Is it possible that the first part (where the key enters) has a problem and not the last part where the wires are connected? Is there different quality of material? Should I pay 100$ for a land-rover genuine part?

I guess anything is possible, but the ignition switch fails more frequently than the ignition module, and the switch is like a $18 part from:

(which is what I replaced with, and have not had any issues since)
