DETROIT (WKZO) -- GM says that the replacement parts to fix those faulty ignition switches have begun to arrive at local dealerships and are being installed.

GM Spokesman Fred Liguori says He says its going to take time and a little bit of patience. Dealers have been in contact with the auto owners and will be making arrangements to have the cars brought in.

This week they announced that there was a second problem with the ignition switches, that you could pull out the key and the engine might still be running. 

GM CEO Mary Barra told congress last week that she was unaware of the original ignition switch problem with Saturn Ions and Chevy Cobalts until just after she assumed her new job.

A new memo has surfaced saying she was informed two years ago that there might be an issue that was “evolving” with the power steering in some of those models.

GM is saying it was an unrelated issue.
