For the past few days while driving my security light will come on all of a sudden and the car will lose power and then instantly come back on. I had my 3 children in the car with me so we all were in panic mode when this happened. It has now made me very nervous to drive because I do not want to get into an accident. Friends have told me it was because the chip in my key is worn out and to have a new key made. I contacted a local locksmith and he says since this is happening after the car is in motion then it is not the key. There is something wrong with the ignition switch. I contacted my local Buick dealership and was told there are no recalls on this and it cost $95 just for them to look at it and see how much to fix it.

Odometer meter cannot be read at any time because light went out. GM cars have instrument lighting cluster problems, according to the service writer at a Buick dealer. This costs $676.75 to repair. Our son's 2001 Chevy Impala had the dashboard instrument panel fail and he could not read his speedometer. This was replaced for $614 and it failed again a year later.
