The vehicle may lose power steering at any time while driving.
The weight on the key ring, combined with a jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Increased brake pedal effort may be required due to loss of power braking assist.
An electrical connection problem at the body control module can result in various concerns related to application of the brake pedal.
1) Exterior brake lights not working as expected
2) Difficulty disengaging the cruise control
3) Moving the shifter out of park without pushing the brake pedal
4) Disabling of the traction control, electronic stability control, and braking assist systems
Braking performance may be reduced unexpectedly.
The shift cable may fracture and not indicate the proper gear as selected by the driver. This could allow a vehicle to roll when it is expected to be in "Park".
Power steering assist could be lost unexpectedly. Should this occur, steering ability would be maintained but would require much more effort.
The adjuster that adjusts the position of the shifter cable may fail, preventing operation of the shifter and causing the shift indicator to be inaccurate.
The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC) may not work at times.
The 8 way adjustable power seat may not work as expected due to damaged wires under the seat.
