The ignition keeps locking out the cars ability to start. On numerous occasions this vehicle would not start after entering the vehicle. The lights would come on and when the key is rotated to the start position nothing would happen. Upon waiting for 10 to 20 minutes this vehicle will then restart. When taken to the garage to have maintenance done this vehicle never failed for them on twenty times of starting in a row. Took the car home and it sat and now it failed again. My daughter is about to be dismissed from her current job because of this constant failure to start. Lately, the time has grown. My daughter took a video of the incident and have taken it back to the dealer and they are not able to duplicate the problem. They said they had to jump it to start it and when questioned about it they stated it took them 10 to 15 minutes to gather all the equipment to get it to start. The problem would have resolved itself in that time. This is now becoming life threating as the vehicle stalls in traffic and an accident could happen. No codes are showing for this according to the dealer. This has been going on for approximately 5 months now and getting worse. In my opinion it is something to do with the ignition or security system. I hope nothing serious happens while my daughter is driving. This is the only vehicle she has for transportation. I am submitting this on her behalf.

Nice man came and said lets disconnect the battery. He did. My car started. I was ok for threes day then the light came back on and my car would not start.

My daughter was driving the car and it stalled, so she pulled over to try and restart it but it wouldn't start. We had it towed to a shop and they thought it was the crank shaft censor. We drove for 3 days and the security light came on again and the car wouldn't start. So we had to have it towed home. I've read several complaints about this same problem with this make and model. I find it hard to believe that gm haven't had a recall on this part. This is very frustrating and something needs to be done about it. This part has to be defected.

Failure Date: 11/02/2014

At 55 mph, a warning message stating service traction control-engine power reduced appeared. While driving downhill or on level ground, I had sufficient power to continue driving. When headed uphill it was extremely difficult to get the car to shift into a lower gear. When it finally did shift, it shifted hard and really jerked the car. A few miles down the road, I rounded a corner and began to pick up some momentum. Without warning, the engine stopped and another warning light stating starting disabled-service throttle appeared. I had enough momentum to move off to the side of the road. I tried to start the car several times. The engine did not crank and the message continued to flash. I completely turned the key off and sat for a few minutes. I was about to call for a tow truck when I tried again. The engine started and I was able to continue home with no issues. A few days later, the first message I mentioned appeared (service traction control-engine power reduced). I was still at work, so I found a parking space and turned the engine off immediately. A few minutes later, I restarted the engine and drove away. I guess I'm just lucky this didn't happen on the turnpike or interstate. Gm has to know about this. I guess they don't pay attention to near-misses.
