2000 Pontiac Grand Am RecallsIgnition Lock Cylinder Concern
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
GM has recalled 2000-2001 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am vehicles because the turn signals and hazard lights may fail. This may increase the risk of a collision. Dealers will replace the hazard warning switch.
