PROBLEMS BEFORE GM RECALL 14350/CAMPAIGN ID 14V400. PROBLEM 1 THE IGNITION SWITCH CONTINUED TO STILL ENGAGE AFTER VEHICLE WAS STARTED AND KEY WAS IN THE RUN POSITION. PROBLEM 2 AFTER TURNING THE KEY TO STOP ENGINE WOULD CONTINUE TO RUN UNTIL YOU JIGGLED THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH. PROBLEM 3 HITTING A POT HOLE AT 45 MPH SHUT THE CAR OFF LUCKY MY QUICK REACTION WAS PUT IT INTO NEUTRAL AND RESTARTED THE CAR. SEPTEMBER 2014 RECEIVED THE SAFETY RECALL FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS AS CLAIMED WHICH MADE ME LAUGH CAUSE THE ONLY THING I HAD ON THE KEY RING WAS THE KEY AND ENTRY REMOTE. NOVEMBER 2014 RECALL WAS DONE WITH A PLASTIC INSERT ON THE KEY TO KEEP THE WEIGHT CENTER MASS ON THE KEY. AS OF THIS DAY MARCH 2015 I STILL HAVE ALL 3 PROBLEMS I STATED EARLIER, THAT RECALL HAS NOT FIXED THE UNDER LINING PROBLEM OF A DEFECTIVE IGNITION SWITCH ITS NOT THE KEY ITS THE SWITCH ITSELF BECAUSE THE CAR STILL DOES ALL THE PROBLEMS I MENTIONED IN THE BEGINNING, I FIND THIS A CHEAP AND SCARY NO FIX BUT TO SATISFY ANYONE WHO THINKS THIS WAS A FIX BUT IN REALITY WILL CAUSE MORE HARM. THE SWITCH NEEDS REPLACED.

WHILE DRIVING HORN SOUND WEAK AND STOPPED WORKING I HAD TO TAKE OUT FUSE FOR THE HORN BECAUSE IT WAS JUST SOUNDING OFF. ANOTHER IMPORTANT ISSUE WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS WILL TURN OFF WHILE DRIVING IN THE DARK. THIS CAN CAUSE A SERIOUS WRECK ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ON THE HIGHWAY AND COULD KILL SOMEONE. VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SAME THING WITH THE HORN, SOMEONE CAN PULL OUT IN FRONT OF YOU AND YOU CANNOT BLOW YOUR HORN.
