10/12/2016 - EATON RAPIDS, MI
1999 OLDSMOBILE ALERO. CONSUMER WRITES IN REGARDS TO IGNITION SWITCH REPLACEMENT AND SEEKS REIMBURSEMENT FOR IGNITION SWITCH RECALL REPAIRS. THE CONSUMER STATED THERE WERE NO OTHER KEYS ON THE KEY CHAIN. HOWEVER, THE KEY WOULD OFTEN FALL OUT OF THE IGNITION SWITCH WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AND WHAT WAS MORE DISTURBING, THE KEY WOULD COME OUT OF THE IGNITION IN ANY POSITION. NUMEROUS TIMES THE IGNITION WOULD NOT TURN OFF COMPLETELY WHICH CAUSED THE BATTERY TO DIE.

WHEN TRYING TO START THE ANTI-THEFT LIGHT COMES ON AND BLINKS YOU MUST WAIT 10 MINS TO RESTART AND SOMETIMES THE VEHICLE WILL START OR YOU HAVE TO WAIT THE RECYCLE TILL AGAIN. GM DID A RECALL ON THE KEY ITSELF TO ADD A HOLE IN THE KEY FOR THE WEIGHT SITUATION, BUT DID NOT HELP THE IGNITION PROBLEM OF STARTING THIS VEHICLE. MY QUESTION IS WHY HASN'T THIS PROBLEM BEEN ADDRESS YET? I HAVE SEVERAL COMPLAINTS ON THIS PROBLEM.
