Understanding GM ignition switch recall safety information: Remove keychain

CLEVELAND - General Motors is helping vehicle owners understand the ignition switch recall.

The company published a website to guide drivers through the process and explains what to do if you own a recalled vehicle.

The first thing to do is to remove everything from your keychain, including the key fob.

The site -- gm.com/ignition-switch-recall.html -- has a list of the vehicles involved and what to do if you haven’t been contacted by a dealer.

“This page is designed to help you understand the recent ignition switch recall a little better.  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.  The key fob (if applicable) should also be removed from your key ring. General information and contact details are provided below. For your specific vehicle, please visit the GM Owner Center and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).”

The site also includes recall videos and a message from GM CEO Mary Barra.
