“…If you are driving an affected vehicle, until the safety recall repairs have been performed, it is very important that you remove all items from your key ring, leaving only the vehicle key…”
Best practice with ANY key operated vehicle. Why? If you have stuff on your key ring, hold your ignition key by the cut end, rock it slightly to & fro. Notice how the key moves in your hand. This wears the key and ignition switch as you drive.
Simple fix – keep Put your ignition key on a pull off ring so it is quick and easy to separate from the ballast and there where you need it.
