The vehicle is a 2002 Ford F-250 sd. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1FTNW21S92_. The vsm (vehicle security module) failed. Symptoms include, but are not limited power door locks do not work, key fob does not work, auto headlights do not work, radio doesn't turn off when key is out of the ignition and door opens, no audible indicator for key in the ignition, no audible indicator for headlights on with door open, dome lights stay on. This problem is widespread with this model year and there are many reports on forums around the internet. Ford has also stopped making the original part and replaced its manufacture with a new part which supposedly does not exhibit the same random failure rate. Headlights not working is a major life safety issue. I drove without headlights on for some time (as the auto headlights did not come on) and did not notice it until I was on an unlit street. All of the old vsms should be changed to the new model free of charge to prevent this from happening. This ignition module issue occurred Mar. 30, 2014.

car   Ignition Module problem of Ford F-150

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Ford F-150. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1FTPW14506_. Went to start truck and engine would crank but would not fire. I tried the starting fluid test to see if it was an ignition problem or fuel problem. Gave a little shot of starting fluid into the intake and then tried to start. Motor acted like it was going to start but never started beings I didn't give it enough starting fluid to start because I'm not a fan of using it. With that I eliminated the ignition had to be fuel. I got on the internet and searched no start problem for 2006 F-150 and found a you tube video of the fuel pump control module rusting out. Went out and dropped spare tire and took the control module off the cross member and noticed the hole corroded through the housing just like the video. I got the upgraded part from a Ford dealer for $163 and installed. Runs fine now. My biggest complaint is Ford knows there's a problem since the have came out with an upgraded control module so why isn't this a recall? I live in a state that temperatures in the winter months can be below 0 degrees fahrenheit and drive an hour one way to work, this could have happened when I was on the road in extreme cold, could of had my two children with me broke down on the side of the road and cold out. Luckily it happened at home but still it was 4 degrees out and laying under my truck taking the module off was not very pleasant. Think this is something that Ford needs to do something about. This ignition module problem happened on Jan. 22, 2014.

car   Ignition Module problem of GMC Yukon

My 2005 GMC Yukon xl 1500 will spontaneously shift itself into 4lo. This doesn't only happen at low speeds. It occurs at all speeds when the vehicle is moving and in gear. When it happens, all of the lights on the push-button 4wd control module will light up or flash. No amount of button-pushing will disengage 4 wheel drive. I have also not come across any sort of manual fix, I. E. Turning off the ignition, taking the vehicle out of gear, backing up, etc. This has happened more than 5 times, and has only ceased to happen because I have removed the relay which controls the 4wd system. I am firmly convinced that it is only through sheer blind luck or divine intervention that no one has been injured while operating this vehicle. Let me restate: this issue occurs entirely at random, and not only when just starting off driving. It occurs at speed! when this happens, the vehicle literally can go from travelling at 35 mph to less than 5 mph. Keep in mind that since the brake is not depressed, following drivers have no warning of this rapid decline in speed. I believe that this is a fundamental defect in gm vehicles using this 4 wheel drive system. I think that the only reason the problem is not seen as more widespread is that the issue happens in differently-named makes and models. For instance, my problem may not be readily connected with the same issue in a Chevrolet suburban, although the two are essentially the same vehicle. Further, I believe that gm is aware that this safety hazard is the result of a manufacturing defect and is unwilling to take responsibility for the problem. A simple internet search of "stuck in 4lo" without identifying a manufacturer, brings up almost exclusively gm-built fullsize trucks using the same push-button system. I don't believe that this is mere coincidence. Here is an opportunity for ms. Barra to show that gm owns up to its errors. It was Wednesday, March 6, 2013 when this ignition module issue happened.

This occurance put an unreasonable risk on occupants due possible accidents. The NHTSA campain id number 02v120000 addressed this issue. However, rejection of applying recall to my vehicle, even though the situation was exactly identical to recall by Honda dealer, who replaced switch at my expense and refused to consider that recall applied to the ignition unit as not on recall list. I questioned sensibility of this as my car's ignition switch was malfuncting exactly as the ignition switch under recall. Due to dealer's disposal and inability to retreive replaced item, unable to compare part number to Honda's list of bad switch components. I have placed a complaint with Honda motors u. S. A. , case #n032012011000163 which was rejected due that they don't show VIN# is included in the recall. I questioned this with them as recall and actual events occuring with my auto were identical.

car   Ignition Module problem of Hyundai Sonata

The vehicle is a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. I have a 2011 Sonata limited. Earlier this year I began having a starting issue where the car would say "apply brake pedal to start" even though my foot was firmly planted on the brake. Took the car in and they couldn't duplicate so I just kept on working around it. In June, it got worse so I took it back, spoke to the service manager at the dealership and they ordered a brake switch and new push button ignition on June 20th or thereabouts. The parts finally arrived on August 17th. . Yes. . It took that long apparently. I dropped the car off that morning and went back that afternoon around 5. I was informed that they had replaced the brake switch and push button but when they went to test drive, they lost steering control and the eps and traction control system had failed. They took a part off a new Sonata in their lot and put it on my car but that did not correct the problem. After 2 days of troubleshooting they managed to correct that issue but as soon as they did, the abs light came on and it stated the abs system had failed too. I am now waiting on a part for the abs as of 8/22. None of these systems had issues prior to the drop off date. This concerns me that there may be a serious problem with the electrical system. We will see when they replace the abs module if something else goes wrong. This ignition module problem happened on Friday, April 1, 2011.

car   Ignition Module problem of Infiniti Q45

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was JNKBF01A03_. My 2003 Infiniti Q45 repeatedly stalls [so far, 15+ times] and often will not restart [10+ times]. With my family and me in the car, the stalling of the car puts us repeatedly in jeopardy of a rear-end collision or vandalism or bodily injury in dangerous areas. The car is properly maintained on its service schedule. It took my mechanic a week at a cost of $90 to confirm that the problem is the engine control module [ecm], the 'brain' of the car which controls other vehicle sensors, and this was confirmed by the Infiniti dealer at a cost of $150. The ecm was sent to texas for reconditioning and reprogramming, but is being returned because the ecm is irreparable. The cost to buy and reprogram a new ecm from Infiniti, the only source, is $2000 for a vehicle with 100,000+ miles. But a new ecm will likely have the same problems as the ecm being replaced. I do not want to put my family in repeated jeopardy. There is no assurance that the new ecm will work properly. I am suspicious that the Infiniti ecms contain numerous design flaws. I have had numerous problems, aside from stalling, with the existing ecm, including door locks automatically locking with the key in the ignition so that I am locked out, the locks not unlocking, etc both my mechanic and infinity were unable to diagnose these problems until it became clear that I had a malfunctioning ecm. There was a recent massive recall of Nissan and Infiniti ecms, but the Infiniti Q45 was excluded, even though the symptom of repeated stalling is identical to my car, except that, worse, I also often cannot restart the vehicle. This issue happened on 09/22/2010.

car   Ignition Module problem of Nissan Altima

The car involved is a 2009 Nissan Altima. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Nissan Altima is 1N4AL24E79_. On 3/13/2013 I drove my vehicle to work at approximately 8:55am and parked everything in car was fully operational and functioned properly. At 6:30pm I approached my vehicle unlocked the door using my key fob, entered the vehicle and proceeded to press the ignition button and nothing happens. After switching on the headlights and noticing no power issues I noticed a flashing indicator light in the dash that said no key present. After being the only car left in the dark secluded parking lot I started off on a journey to purchase a battery for the key fob and it did not solve the phenomenon. I had the vehicle towed to the nearest dealership which is about 60 miles away from my home. The dealer after investigating for a matter of minutes were quickly able to diagnose the problem which was a steering lock module that was very costly. Upon further research, I found that there are a great number of Altima's and other Nissan vehicle that are infected with the same defective steering lock devices that causes you to randomly be stranded in secluded areas without prior notice. This I find highly unethical for Nissan to be totally aware of such defective equipment and not have any concern for the welfare of it's customers nor their children. Im hoping that the NHTSA can protect consumers from bullies like Nissan and help us get the recall we deserve. All we want is a reliable product that can perform the way it was intended to perform. So let's do what is necessary to hold Nissan up to the american standard of putting out quality reliable products and not ripping off consumers. It was Mar. 13, 2013 when this ignition module issue happened.

car   Ignition Module problem of Saturn ION

The vehicle involved was a 2007 Saturn Ion. I heard on tv that gm had recalled the Ion because of deaths associated with fires from leaking fuel modules and failing ignition switches. So, I called gm and was told that they will only fix the tyhe ignition if it fails and the fuel module when ypu can show it is leaking. It seems like if they have a problem with their parts they should try to fix them prior to stalling on the freeway or having the vehicle burst into flames from leaking fuel. Am I off base here?.

Drove for about two miles, turned into my neighborhood and up my street. Parked truck in driveway, no idiot lights at that time, gauges were normal. After about 20-30 minutes attempted to restart truck. It would crank strongly, begin to start, sputter and die. Attempted several more times, with same result. It acted like it was not getting fuel. After 10-15 minutes of cool down, it still refused to start. Finally managed to get it started by pumping gas pedal and repeatedly cranking. Finally it caught, but required revving to stay running. At last it settled down to an idle. Tundra problems continued: Friday 4/14/06 accelerated gradually away from a stop light down an exit ramp and onto the highway. Truck began hesitating or stumbling for about 30 sec. , then smoothed out. Saturday 4/15 /06 turned right and began accelerating up an incline with full load of passengers. Truck began stumbling; acting like it was not getting fuel, upon coming to a traffic light, it stalled when I came to a stop. No check engine light came on, it was like I had turned off the key. Managed to get it started, and it ran the rest of that evening without further incident. This occurred about 6:00 p. M. And the air temperature was in the low 80s. Tuesday 4/18/06 was driving around the baltimore beltway at speed, when the engine began missing at a speed of approximately 65 mph. This continued for at least two, and possibly three minutes.

car   Ignition Module problem of Volkswagen Beetle

The car is a 1998 Volkswagen Beetle. Windows started going up and down randomly and doors locking/unlocking randomly. As I was reaching through my window to gram my keys from the ignition my arm got pinched, and lodged in the window that was going up, (I was trying to get my keys before getting locked out of the car (again) due to the random locking and unlocking). Auto reversal of the windows when an appendage gets lodged in the window did not occur. This pinched and lodged my left arm in the window to a point of bruising an area of 4 inches by 2 inches. After exhaustively researching this issue (which is a common issue with the door lock modules on the 98-02 vw Beetles with the old style "loud" power locks) I concluded that the door lock module and the door closed microswitch were with culprits of this incident. I am very grateful that this only occurred to a 32 year old man and not one of my 4 small children (7mo-7 years). Vwoa should do their research and see that hundreds if not thousands of vw owners have had to replace dlms on multiple doors at a cost of at least $200+ each door (more at the dealership). This should be a recall for the safety factor alone, let alone the inconvenience factor of having to replace a dlm because of a $3 microswitch at the door closed sensor, or 1 of 6 bad solder joints on the circuit board inside the door lock module. Information on the exact problem can be found on multiple vw repair sites (tdiclub. Com; vwvortex. Com; newbeetle. Org; etc, etc, etc) I do understand that my car is 14 years old, however I have had to spend over $1000 fixing vw factory mistakes on this car already. I love vw, being a former owner of several air cooled vws in the past, however this will severely affect my decision to ever buy another water cooled vw. This issue happened on August 26, 2012.

The el paso, TX dealer claimed it needed the throttle body replaced. It was replaced. . . No change. Owl automotive changed a spark plug and wire. . . No change. Owl thought the ecu might be the problem. It was sent to technicians who checked and upgraded the unit. . . No change. Also, it did not indicate any problems. Car was taken back to el paso dealer. They stated it needed another throttle body. I contacted USA Jaguar, who contacted the el paso dealer and instructed them how to check the throttle body off the car. The dealer then stated the problem wasn't the throttle body, it was the ecu. El paso jag would not check anything else unless I spent $4k+ to replace the ecu, even though it had just been checked and upgraded. The car is now back at owl automotive having ignition coils changed. If the problem continues the communication cable between the ecu and transmission module will be changed. If the problem continues, the transmission module will be sent out and checked. The car has been in shops for the past 2-3 years. It has been driven less than 100 miles and has been towed 3 times. The car has 38-39,000 miles. The car is dangerous to drive as is. It has depreciated approximately $10k while sitting in garages having attempted repairs. Jaguar does not seem to be concerned about the problem nor focused on repairing the problem. They are only intent on replacing all the components, hit or miss, until they finally solve the issue. . . . . . At substantial cost to me. I had to purchase another car to have reliable transportation. The car cannot be sold "as is", however, it will be my last Jaguar. This ignition module issue occurred Aug. 1, 2006.
