 Caterpillar Forklift Ignition Key

Connecting the forklift battery with the electrical devices and ignition system is the main function of the Caterpillar Forklift Ignition Key / Switch. Besides, switching on the power for other electrical devices & activation of the starter solenoid & ignition system components are its additional tasks.


Problems & Solutions of Ignition Key  

  • Coagulated dusts & filths stuck in lock cylinder can be washed away by electrical         contact cleaner and silicone spray.
  • If the springs can’t fix a locked tumbler, some flips with tack hammer can get the springs released.
  • If the keys become out of shape, they should be hammered on a plain surface.
  • If the column locking mechanism is engaged, turn the steering left to right, back and forth.
