Additional information:

Among the 25 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November, comes news of the following:

Alpha Technology Corp. (“Alpha”) has recalled an estimated 153,462 Mechanical Key Ignition Switch Systems, part number FOJ57 00000. Over time, weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the RUN position into the ACCESSORY position, turning off the engine.

According to the NHTSA, the vehicle stall from the engine turning off could increase the risk of a crash.

Alpha has notified the affected vehicle manufacturers. If those manufacturers determine that the switches create a safety risk in their vehicles, they in turn will notify the registered owners of the affected vehicles and replace the switch, free of charge.
