If the starter or other ignition system components don't work, don't expect to see the engine do anything. When the key doesn't turn, the ignition system won't get a chance to do anything. A specific defective part may keep the key from turning, but such a problem could be relatively easy to repair. Replacing the starter would likely come with high costs and labor.

Hopefully, troubles with the ignition are caught early. Ignitions that sputter need attention because the problem may become much worse. The car might soon not start at all. Such an incident could happen at an inconvenient time.

Other possible signs of troubles with the ignition could arise. Do the dash lights flicker? Don't assume nothing is wrong because things return to normal operation. A mechanic should check anything out of the ordinary.
