My daughter has a 2005 Impala R92 police package - ex-inspectors car. All police items have been removed.
It intermittently won't crank in park position. 2 times in the last 4 mos. She is not using the brake push, and has not noticed the "security" indicator coming on when the problem occurred.
The key lock cylinder is very loose and sloppy - and usually won't turn without jiggling it. She has gotten notices for the ignition recall. Does this replace the lock cylinder?
Does the R92 package have the PASSKEY system?
I have read elsewhere about terminal corrosion on the ignition switch and on the BCD module. Has anyone here encountered it?

The ignition switch recall just adds some plastic inserts to the hole on the key to eliminate the slot and make it into a small circle in the middle of the key to reduce leverage that could potentially turn the key off.

I would start with getting keys cut to the VIN number from the dealership or a locksmith - NOT copying the existing keys to see if the problem goes away, then cleaning the ignition cylinder with electrical contact cleaner with the battery disconnected. When it's properly cleaned, relube it with graphite.

If something is drastically loose then it should probably be replaced The ignition lock cylinder goes into the switch so you'd have to take them apart to see what is actually loose.

I don't know what the R92 package is; my understanding is that all Impalas have the anti-theft system built into the ignition cylinder & BCM.

My 05 9C2 [inspector's car] has no anti-theft system, & uses $1.24 keys from Home Depot. GARY

Yeah but you can get a clean cut (Perfect)key from the dealer for 12$
rather then a key with defects in it


it seem to be more snug in the key hole as well (less movement )

I went by the local Chevy dealer for my 2 free recall keys. There is absolutely no difference in using the Home Depot $1.24 keys, vs the dealer cut by VIN keys. I actually prefer the Home Depot key, as the plastic head is much smaller than the dealer key. GARY
