It's unlikely that this is recall related. If everything else powers up the ignition switch is working fine. The problem with the ignition switch is not a starting problem it is an unexpected stopping problem. Starter is a possibility. Also check the obvious. Is it in park? Try boosting it. A near dead battery might have enough power to operate accessories but not the starter. An '08 is due for a new battery if that's the original still in the car. After that it might be tow truck time, but it will be at your expense.
