2011 thinks key is still in ignition when removed

Recommended Posts

I've had this problem for a long time but it seems to be getting worse. Sometimes when I remove the key from my 11 SEL it acts like the key is still in the ignition and gives me all the warnings. I have to reinsert and turn the key again to get it to stop. Anyone else experience this.

The dealership replaced the ignition switch on my 2007, and for the most part, the problem went away. I found that being too quick with key removal after engine shutoff will make the problem reappear. So I give it a second, then remove the key. No problems that way. Also, turning the steering wheel a bit left/right will make it stop if it does occur.

Try squirting a shot of WD-40 into the key slot. Definitely getting older, but some lubricant may free up the internal parts and allow it to function normally for another year or two.

Thanks for the ideas, I think I'll try a little graphite spray when I get a chance.
