    Default steering wheel catching keys

    its happened 3 times since ive had the car now

    while your driving and turning corners my keys get caught by the steering wheel and cuts the engine off, happened yesterday when pulling off a junction soon as i pulled off engine cut out and steering wheel symbol came on, had to just let the car rool to the side of the road, , it started fine after that, i only have my car key and house key on there but they seem to get caught by the steering wheel, just wondered if anybody else has had this?

    Can't say I have had this I only ever use a single car key (keys) on a fob and keep all others separate, old habit dies hard after ruining a barrel with a very hefty key ring full of house work and car keys ruined one on me
