General Motors recently issued a recall for over a half million Chevrolet Camaro vehicles, 2010 to 2014.
The issue stems from the possibility that the driver’s knee can bump the flip or switchblade type key while in the ignition, accidently turning the vehicle off while in motion.
General Motors’ solution to the problem is to make an appointment to have the owner bring the vehicle into the service department, remove the key blades from the existing keys, cut a fixed blade key like the one pictured and program it to start the car.
At that point, a key ring is used to fasten the two together and you’ll use the fixed blade key to start the car from now on and only use the flip key for the remote keyless entry functions.
One of the problems the dealerships are facing at the time of this writing, being that the recall was recently issued and there are over half a million vehicles to service, is that they are having trouble keeping up with demand. Key supplies are already depleted and being placed on back-order.
