If you’re looking for an original german ignition switch for your Beetle from 1954 to 1979 we’ve got ’em.
The first option is to select the year of your VW
1954 – 1957
We’re trying to find a way to make as easy as possible for you guys to find the right ignition for your VW. Choose the year from the drop down, if your car is from 54-57 Oval Bug, then it’s as simple as just selecting and adding to your cart. The ignition includes two VW logo keys that will work with the ignition, however if you are looking to match the switch to your existing SG profile key, choose the “Key Alike” Option, and let me know what your code is. Don’t know what your code is? We can help you identify the correct code from one of your door handles. Once we get that info, we can cut your new keys to that code and key the ignition alike.
1958 to 1959
If you have a 1958 to 1959 it’s a two year only style, should be an (SG) profile. The only difference between the 54-57 and this one, it only has 3 screw connector on the back, and the mounting bracket is offset, instead of straight.
1960 – One Year Only
If you have a 1960, that is a one year only vehicle, the correct profile for you is (SE) profile, and normally all of your locks should match the (SE) profile, you can buy the switch as is with the included keys, or we can key it alike if you choose the “Key Alike” option and provide us with your correct code.
1961 to 1966 (SC) (SU) (SV)
1961 to 1966 shared 3 different profile types. (SC) (SU) (SV) do you know what your profile is? If you have an original german key, the code should be stamped on the key itself, a correct code should look something like this (SC123)
If your key is just a generic one, then you’ll need to get the code from one of your door handle locks and we can help guide you. Once we find out what your profile is, you can buy it as is, or we can match it to fit your current keys.
1967 One Year Only
1967 is also one year only. Correct profile should be (K) profile normally all of your locks should be matching.
1968 to 1979
1968 to 1970 should be (K) profile. 1971 to 1979 should be (M) profile.
