What are the defects?
Poor contact between the ignition switch contacts which may lead to arcing causing burning of the contacts and increased electrial resistance. As a result, this may interrupt the ignition switch circuit and cause the engine to stall. Additionally, heat generated due to increased resistance may melt solder within the switch and may fall into the drivers footwell.
