Ignition switch Issues

Postby Christopherevans52 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:34 pm

I have a 1972 Dino Coupe 2.4 with a temperamental ignition switch, Sometimes you turn the ignition on and the gauges fail to come live i.e. the fuel gauge doesn't switch on, you can turn the engine over but it won't start. by wiggling the key or tapping the casing under the key it will come live then starts fine. Once going it is usually fine or though has died on a couple of occasions.

I had the whole barrel out a couple of years ago, soaked it in WD40 and re assembled it which worked for a few months. I also tried to fit the Superperformance replacement switch which had different wiring and then fell apart in my hands!

Any help welcome - is it the same as a 124 switch?

Hi Christoph,
No, the switches of Dino and 124 are different. Dino has a male connector #16 which supplies the fuel pump with power when starting the motor. The 124 does not have this.
I have some new original Dino ignition switches left and would sell one. Kindly give me your email address (in a PM) so that I can send you some photos of this item.

Hi

Please excuse me joining in this discussion. I own a low volume Italian car built in 1966, which I am informed used the same ignition switch as a period Fiat Dino. My car, unfortunately was broken into 40 years ago and the ignition switch was vandalised and replaced with a Lucas ignition switch. I am attempting to return the car to nearer its original state and so I am looking for a SIPEA 90030 ignition switch/steering lock. I have the original contact set, though not the lock barrel. I have been informed that the FIAT part number for the ignition switch is 4186512, and the SIPEA contact set is Sipea 606730. But I can't guarantee that the info is correct. The ignition is definitely a SIPEA 90030 though. Also, as I have the contact set, I do not require a switch with the same contacts (though that would be nice). If anyone (Georg perhaps) can point me in the right direction, I will be eternally grateful.

Hi Peter, please check the photos below if this is what you are looking for. At least the # 90030 is stamped on the front side. If you are interested kindly send me a PM to agree on price and clear sending the item to you (in which country do you live?). Alternatively, if you do not have access to send a PM, let me know your mail address.
Regards
Georg
