Default Ignition Key Gets Hot

I have a new 2003 CR-V.
After driving a while, when I remove the ignition key, the metal part
is hot to the touch.
Is this normal?
Anyone else?
Comments appreciated.
Carl

Hi,
I don't think so. Better check with dealer and put it on record.
Sounds like there is poor connection inside the switch assembly
causing the heat. It could be even fire hazard if it really gets
that hot. Older CRV has recall on siwtch wiring harness for intermittent
connection.(engine cuts out unexpectedly)

Apparently it is. Apparently it has to do with the solenoid that locks
the steering wheel when the igntion is off. When the ignition is on,
current goes through this solenoid to unlock the wheel.

And solenoids get hot.

Your Honda dealer will have a bulletin on this, stating that it's
absolutely normal.

Yep. I've had it on my last three cars - 2 Hondas and a Chrysler.

it's normal. there's a service news on this. when you incorporate the
immobilizer system theres a lot of electricity flowing through the
switch and cylinder.

I agree that it's normal. My key also gets hot. That's probably why Honda
and other car companies now place a huge piece of plastic on top of the
keys. You should only touch the plastic portion of the key so you won't
have to touch the hot metal part.
