ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

1/24/2015 - INDIANAPOLIS, IN
I NOTICED DURING THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY 2014 THAT MY TURN SIGNALS WORK WHEN THEY WANT TO . I WAS TURNING RIGHT AND MY MOM WAS RIDING WITH ME WHEN SHE NOTICED THAT MY TURN SIGNALS WAS NOT WORKING LEFT OR RIGHT. SO WE MADE IT TO OUR DOCTORS APPOINTMENT AND WHEN WE WERE LEAVING THEY WORKING . IT'S WEIRD BECAUSE BY CHANGING THE BULBS THE TURN SIGNALS ARE STILL GOING IN AND OUT WHEN THEY WANT TOO. AND WE NOTICED LIGHT FLUID LEAKAGE BUT IT WAS NOT LEAKING IN NOVEMBER WHEN I BROUGHT MY VERY OWN FIRST CAR FOR CASH AND I HAD THE OIL CHANGED SO I TOOK IT BACK TO JIFFY LUBES AND THE TECH COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM, THIS WEEK JANUARY 21, 2014 MY STEERING WHEEL IS MAKING THIS STRANGE WHISTLING NOISE WHEN I MAKE A TURN, AND MY SECURITY LIGHT HAS CAME ON AND WILL NOT GO OFF. SO I DECIDED TO CHECK THE SAFETY GM RECALL LISTING FOR HELP.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

1/8/2015 - TEHACHAPI, CA
AFTER HAVING RECALL OF IGN. KEY PERFORMED, THE KEY BECAME HARD TO TURN ON, CATCHING AND HAVING TO WIGGLE TO START THE ENGINE. VEHICLE HAS STALLED WHILE DRIVING 3 TIMES, LOOSING POWER BREAKS AND STEERING, COAST TO STOP, AND VEHICLE STARTS AGAIN. FEEL THIS IS DIRECTLY CONNECTED AND CAUSED BY THE FAULTY KEY AND IGNITION SYSTEM, APPEARS THE FAULTY KEY HAS CAUSED THE TUMBLER TO WEAR-OUT, AND ANY JARRING OF THE KEY AND OR DASH RESULTS IN IGNITION TO SHUT OFF. I HAVE CONTACTED GM AND THEY REFUSE TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM, SAYING THIS RECALL WOULD NOT CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO FAIL.. SAYING BECAUSE OF THE HIGH MILEAGE ON THE VEHICLE, IT IS NOT THERE FAULT. AND I MUST PAY FOR THE REPAIR.. BUT I PRAY TO DIFFER, IF THE DEFECTIVE KEY AND IGN. UNIT WERE NOT AT FAULT, THEN THE KEY/TUMBLER WOULD NOT HAVE WORN-OUT.
