UNKNOWN OR OTHER

8/20/2014 - LAVALE, MD
AFTER STOPPING AT A STOP SIGN THE VEHICLE STOPPED DEAD IN THE INTERSECTION. WOULD NOT RESTART, COULD NOT BE STEERED AS THERE WAS NO POWER AT ALL. VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO DEALERSHIP WHERE A "NEW" IGNITION SWITCH WAS INSTALLED. BUT NO NEW SHORTER KEY WITH A HOLE IN IT WAS GIVEN TO ME. HOW CAN I BE SURE THE NEW SWITCH WILL NOT MALFUNCTION. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE RECALLED VEHICLES. IF I HAD GONE TWO BLOCKS FURTHER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN A BUSY MAJOR HIGHWAY INTERSECTION. SO FAR NO RESPONSE FROM COMPLAINTS TO VARIOUS GM SOURCES.

THE IGNITION SWITCH HAS BEEN ACTING LIKE THE ONES THAT ARE RECALLED WITH THE 05 - 07 MODEL YEARS. OUR VEHICLE WHEN YOU TURN THE IGNITION ON IT ACTS LIKE ITS DEAD, EVEN WITH NO KEY IN IGNITION YOU CAN TURN SWITCH A LITTLE AND THE GEAR SELECTOR LIGHT COMES ON AS WELL AS THE BATTERY LIGHT, AND WE HAVE HAD TWO DEAD BATTERIES FROM THIS

THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE "FRIED" AND CAUSED THE BRAKES TO "FAIL" - SPECIFICALLY, THE BRAKE PEDAL NEEDED TO BE PRESSED TO THE FLOOR ALTHOUGH IT HAD LITTLE EFFECT. THIS SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE THE FAILURE SEEN IN THE RECALL #3: 2014 CHEVROLET MALIBU. THE ECM FAILURE ALSO CAUSED A SHORT IN THE AIRBAG SENSOR. (A REPAIR WAS DONE ON THE BRAKES - BUT I AM NOT SURE IT WAS NEEDED EXCEPT FOR THE ECM PROBLEM BASED UPON THE DISCRIPTION OF THE MALIBU RECALL). THE DOT REFERENCE FOR THIS IS: 656599
