Ignition barrel/switch/thing issue

When I start my 200 sometimes it cuts out instantly after starting, I was puzzled by this and I noticed that if I rotate the barrel slightly after ignition back the other way, it doesnt do it anymore?

Any idea what is failing and if so what the part name/number is? 1993 200 Tdi 90 CSW

That's a relief, I was worried it was going to be some small part that needed replacing, thanks Thumbs Up 1993 200 Tdi 90 CSW

I had exactly the same on mine a few months ago, which was cured by a new ignition barrel. The original had just worn out.

I picked up one slightly cheaper from eBay with free delivery.

Its probably the switch on the end of the barrel. Pop the steering column surround and binnacle off and you can access the switch. Have a feel and see if its loose. If it is, you just have to unscrew the ignition barrel and remove the switch unit. New ones are about 15.

If your ignition barrel has never been off, they have security bolts so your need to use a bolt/screw remover. Just replace these with regular bolts to save future faffing.

That sounds like an interesting little project as i'd prefer to repair it right than unbolt it and throw it away.

Any idea which part number I need for the switch? 1993 200 Tdi 90 CSW

Try LR039638

Make sure its the right one for your 200 first though. Should be.

I think the 200 Tdi has a glow plug timer, rather than the key held against a spring like the 2.5 NA and TD?

In which case you need the smaller switch: PRC8230 -> YXB500170 -> LR035359 -> LR039638

The fatter switch to handle the glow plug current on the 2.5 NA and TD is PRC2735. The key barrels/column locks are different for the different switches.  1988 90 Td5 NAS soft top Cool
