Yesterday I sprayed some silicone lubricant into my ignition switch on
my car. When I sprayed this silicone, it came out foamy. I always
leave the key in the ignition when the car is in the garage. Last
night the temperature was around +10F. This morning I went to the car
and the ignition switch is frozen. The key wont come out at all, and
the switch will not turn. Some of that foam remains, and it's ice. I
thought silicone was a petroleum based product. I'm going to be late
or miss work because of this garbage. I think I'll spend the day
talking to my lawyer about the legal consequences of this shit, and my
upcoming lawsuit against Permatex. For all I know, I will have to
replace the key switch and maybe my door locks too, because I also
sprayed them. (Fortunately I did not lock them). There is no warning
on the can about freezing. The product is Permatex Silicone Spray
Lubricant 116DA - Item# 80070. It states right on the can that its
made for locks and get this (used to seal out moisture from
distributors, ignition wires, and spark plugs). Yeah right, it adds
water then seals out moisture from what? Someone is going to pay for
this, and it's not going to be me.
I better call a locksmith and see what they can do with this mess. I
just tried the door locks and they are frozen too, and there is frozen
foam around them too.
By the way, I brought the Permatex aresol can in the house, its a
large chunk of ice that rattles back and forth when I shake it.
