Hold on that's a colbalt there are two recalls for your ignition. One for ignition and one for ignition switch. If these recalls have not been fixed on your car have it towed to dealership ASAP. Serious injury or death can occur if these recalls are not tended to ASAP. This is serious with your car do not drive or attempt to start it till the recalled items have been repaired. Your safety is at stake.

Dandy is right! This is a serious issue recall. Have it taken care of!! Just for your own information, when you turn the key the ignition switch sends a "starter request" signal to the body control module. The body control module then engages the starter to crank the engine. HTH. -Jim
