Honda Split Wafers ignition problem

Honda Ignition Problems - Sticky Keys or Keys Won't Turn


In most of its ignition switches, Honda is using split wafers  system. That means that in order to make a single wafer, two half of a wafer are being attached.

Those wafers are very sensitive to dust & dirt, although this is not the main issue. That would be that they are worn out over time. The wafer has a tiny tip that is being “shaved” by the key over a long period of time.

By connecting two half of a wafer together, a single wafer is being made. In this wafer – the key can slide in. However, as soon as one of the tips is worn out, it gets harder and harder to get the ignition switch to turn and you may find yourself juggling the key in the ignition in a failed attempt to make it turn.
