This bulletin applies to 2010-2015 Chevy Camaro, 2011-2017 Cruze, 2010-2017 Equinox, 2014-2017 Impala, 2013-2015 Malibu, 2016 Malibu Limited, and 2012-2017 Orlando, Sonic, Spark and Trax vehicles.

Owners may comment that the keyless entry remote is inoperative at times. This may be caused by the ignition key cylinder door sticking in the up position. When this happens, it will disable the keyless entry remote start and the door lock functions. Customers may notice a chime sound when the key is out of the ignition and the driver’s door is open. The likely cause is a sticking ignition key cylinder door on a plunger to the microswitch. Don’t replace the ignition switch unless you need to. Use a lubricant spray and lube the ignition key cylinder door. Insert the tip of the key in and out to verify the door of the cylinder is not sticking.
