#2 - Ignition Switch problem of the 1998 Acura CL
The vehicle was a 1998 Acura Cl. The car, while driving shut down and lost all power while being driven at 55 mph, I checked the internet for anyone else having that issue and found the recall on my car for ignition switch, I called the dealer and they said that my car already had the recall preformed but would look at it and confirm the problem. I drove the car over, while doing so it died on me again. The dealer confirmed that they thought it was the switch and since it was already been recalled I would have to pay the $500. 00 to replace it. ( I would think that since it appeared that the "fix" did not work that it should be replaced again. ) the dealer then told me that since they did not have the part in stock that I would have to make another appointment and gave me my car to drive home. (now there's a real safety issue. ) since I am currently not working I decided to replace the switch myself and upon opening up the steering column I found that the 2 bolts holding the key lock to the column are a safety type " pan head " that cant be removed easily. The funny thing is I really find it hard to believe that the dealership would use this type of bolt to replace a recall item. There are no easy ways to get at the spot to re-install them. If the manufacturer recalled the item for this issue it shouldn't happen again with the recall switch in it. This problem occurred on Monday, October 1, 2012.
#3 - Ignition Switch problem of the 2001 Acura CL
I own a 2001 Acura Cl 3. 2. The locking mechanism in the ignition switch does not appear to be working. The switch can be turned to off and the key removed without having the transmission in park. This appears to be a problem since the car can continue to move (whether or not someone is inside the car). This was only noticed recently when my son began using this car. Since my wife and I normally put the transmission in park before turning off the car and removing the key, I am not sure how long the problem has existed. Nhtsa's recall database indicates that Honda/Acura have issued recalls on other vehicles but not for the 2001 Cl. The recalls were for the Honda odyssey (1999), Honda accord (1998 to 2002), Honda prelude (1997 to 2001), Acura tl (1999 and 2000) and Acura Cl (1998 and 1999). This ignition switch issue occurred November 20, 2007.
