    Default Ignition switch interchange

    Looking for some help.

    The ignition switch in my GC110 does not power the accessories (i.e. radio) when the key is in the run position. If I wiggle it sometimes I can get it to make contact. I was wondering if the ignition switch was still availble from Nissan and/or if it interchanges with any other Nissan (Z car hopefully). My car is RHD if that makes a difference.

    If the key turns clockwise from the lock position, it's probably the same switch that's in the S30, S130, 810, 910 and others. Does it look like this? If so it's the same:

    I know here in australia you can still buy new sets, but they are repro not genuine nissan ones, i would try and put some contact cleaner into it or even some graphite powder that may help it get a good contact.

    goodluck

    Careful with that graphite powder. Too much and you'll have contact between several of the contacts that need to stay independent of each other.

    here we are using the ignition switch of the datsun 610 ( 1973 - 1976 )

    as a replacement, the only difference is the key has no plastic end.

    part # 48700 - U 1905
    the C110 240k is a not normal car
