 Description of the problemI had been reading about recent recalls with gm, especially ignition switches. I have a 2003 chevy cavalier and it was diagnosed with a bad ignition switch. I first noticed when i went to start the car in the morning, a day after coming home from work. Good thing it happened then because i would have been stranded off site. I went to start the car, nothing happened except wipers and radio did not work as well which i thought was strange. Finally the radio at least came on at some point, but car still would not start. After it was fixed they said the ignition switch was bad and the mechanic asked if i had looked for the recall on it. I searched online but did not find it. I know my car is older, however of all the cars i ever owned and i had many, i never had any issues with ignition switches! I think i had one of the defective switches and would like to look into this matter. Unfortunately i probably can't go back to get the physical ignition switch at this point, too late. I have the proper paperwork for it however. Also on another note, my rear driver side signal keeps going out, no matter how many times i replace it. That might be something gm should look into as well.
