A Volvo 240 ignition switch is a component in the electrical system of a Volvo 240 vehicle that is responsible for controlling the ignition process. It is a key-operated switch that allows the driver to start or shut off the engine. When the key is inserted and turned, it sends an electrical signal to the engine's starter motor, initiating the ignition sequence and allowing the engine to start. Additionally, the ignition switch also controls other electrical functions in the vehicle such as powering the ignition system, accessories, and various components within the car.

When the ignition switch of a Volvo 240 is faulty, you may encounter several signs indicating the issue. These can include:
- Difficulty starting the car: When the ignition switch is faulty, you may experience problems turning the key to start the engine or need to jiggle the key in order to get it to start.
- Intermittent starting issues: The car may occasionally start without any issues, but at other times, you might find that it won't start at all.
- Stalling while driving: A faulty ignition switch can cause the engine to stall unexpectedly while driving, which can be both dangerous and inconvenient.
