How do you bypass the ignition when the ignition switch will not turn?
It depends on the car and you will still have the steering wheel lock to deal with. Newer cars do not like being hot wired. You can break the steering column but that seems excesive. Wiggle the steering wheel as you try and turn the key.

Asked in Ford Focus, Ford F-150
The ignition switch will not turn at all What do you do?
Are you using an original key, or a replacement that has the proper security computer chip located in the fat plastic part of the key? If not, the car's security system will keep the ignition locked and will not allow you to turn the ignition switch. ALSO: some earlier models of Focus had ignition switches that were a problem. If you ARE using the correct key and can't turn the switch to start the car anymore, the ignition switch may have to be replaced.

How do you know when the ignition switch gone bad?
It will not engage and send current to the starter. You will not hear a click or anything else if the ignition switch is bad. With your headlights on when you turn the ignition if the lights dim is it not the ignition switch but more than likely a bad starter. If the lights do not dim it is more than likely the ignition switch.
