My 2004 807 suddenly decided it wouldn't work the other week. Put key in ignition, turned key and nothing happens (didn't turn over or anything), the only thing that happened was the dash lights would turn off.

I called the AA to have a look and they check the fuses and everything. They got the car started for me to drive up to the garage by bypassing the ignition on putting a cable from the fuse box under the bonnet to the starter.

Car has been in one garage for a fortnight and he's given up so is now in another just down the road.

They have just called to inform me that it needs a new ignition switch and it'll take 5-10 days to get it in as it's programmed to my key.

However, have been quoted £396 all in to get it fitted! Does this sound reasonable?

We're stumped without the car at the moment so have given them the thumbs up.

The annoying thing is we want to get the car up and running to sell as it's been draining our non existent funds but this is yet another costly expense which has come in two weeks after getting the cam belt replaced!

Any advice, reassurance etc would be most welcome.

Have they checked fuse 8 in the underbonnet fusebox as this will stop the starter working I know you say the aa checked but the garage should check too.

Underbonnet fusebox could also be the cause what makes them think its the switch ?

If indeed the switch is the cause a secondhand one would do and the remote head will still lock the car cloning the original key to a freshly cut replacement or swapping the blade over into your remote is also possible with a bit of work no need to buy a brand new barrel

Was the battery to body earth connection checked under the driver's feet, have to lift the carpet up slightly to access?
