ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/4/2016 - PADUCAH, KY
CAR FAILS TO START WHEN THE KEY IS INSERTED AND TURNED TO THE PROPER IGNITION STARTING POINT. MY MECHANICS SAYS THE CAR IS NOT FINDING THE SAFETY CHIP INSIDE THE KEY AND WILL NOT ALLOW THE CAR TO START. I AM HAVING TO REPLACE THE IGNITION AND HAVE MY KEY RE-PROGRAMMED. THIS HAS BEEN DEGRADING OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS. STARTING WITH A FORCEFULNESS OF THE KEY TO MAKE IT START. THE LONGER IT HAS GONE THE WORSE IT HAS GOTTEN. UNTIL IT FINALLY WOULD NOT START AT ALL. THE REPAIR WILL COST ME $ 400.00 PLUS HAVING IT TOWED. IT IS A FAILURE OF THE IGNITION SWITCH TO RECOGNIZE THE KEY'S SAFETY CHIP INSIDE THE KEY. IT HAS CAUSED ME TO SIT AND WAIT FOR THE CAR TO START, SOMETIMES REACHING 30 MINUTES. I TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF MY CARS AND HIS SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING.
