Default Honda Ignition Switch Defect may cause Deadly Accidents

A problem with the ignition switch in Honda cars
may cause a Deadly Accident!

The car may stall without warning while driving in traffic.

This has been a known problem and has resulted in a recall by Honda
(NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 03V423000), but some cars with the ignition
switch replaced as part of the recall may still have this problem.

Is Honda trying to conceal this?
Are they in fact aware that their measures in the recall were
inadequate
to properly correct the problem?

Are they leaving peoples lives at risk in order to avoid the
expense of properly correcting the problem?

Your hysteria is misplaced. Any car may stall without warning in traffic and
most do at some point in their existence on the road.

Trolling is not a sign of character.

I disagree, Mike. Trolling is a sign of character. It's up to the
reader to decide *what* character, of course...

I was going to sue somebody for $200 million once, but then I discovered
that the lawyers were going to get $199,999,985.98, and I was going to get
a coupon for 50% off an oil change.

Up here in Canada, Rice Krispies are bilingual (by LAW!).

In English, they go snap crackle pop, like you'd expect.
In Quebec they go cric crac croc.

I shit you not.

Default true ( Re: Honda Ignition Switch Defect may cause Deadly Accidents )

All the salesmen here curse & deny this flaw, salesmen always do
whenever a flaw is exposed ; their bread & butter is jeopardised.

| The car may stall without warning while driving in traffic.
Yes, my '90 Accord ( Japan made )'s ignition switch failed after just
68,800 km use, in 10-03. This switch ( part # 35130-SM4-305 )
suddenly could not feed a current to engine ( F20A )'s distributor, so
this accord was stuck in a slow moving traffic, causing obstruction to
traffic.
If your car uses this switch ( fitted below key slot, K69-1 embossed
on its black plastic casing's bottom), & switch is not new, better let
your car carry a 3 amp wire ( insulated, 18" long ) with a clip* @ 1
end to grip your battery's +ve terminal, & the other end ( bare ) to slip
into your distributor's +ve input terminal ( a wire with a black rubber
insulation, on a F20A ) to ( if necessary ) feed a 12v current to
distributor, so your engine ( after cranking ) can run like normal until
you can replace this un-durable switch. This clip* will enable easy dis
/ re connection to turn off / on engine.
I never knew any ignition switch can fail @ just 68,800 km : the
interior of this failed switch has no crack / dirt / dust inside ! Worse
is the new switch fitted is not perfect either : when idle, it leaks 50-
75 mv to windows' motor's relay, & helps to drain battery.
