Recalls are a legal requirement of the manufacturer and can be done any time . They are required to notify the transport authorities of any cars not completed during the recall. I would front the car and ask to have the recall done as per the recall notice.

Recall ID # 103891 - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH minus.gif Hide Details Recall Date:
JUN 26, 2014
Model Affected:
2008 Dodge Grand Caravan
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Dodge Journey vehicles manufactured June 29, 2007, to June 17, 2010, and 2008-2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles manufactured January 26, 2007, to June 17, 2010. Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequences:
If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will modify the ignition switch, free of charge. Chrysler sent out an interim notification to owners on September 11, 2014. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is L25. Note: This is an expansion of recall 11V-139.
Potential Units Affected:
525206

didnt specify vehicle or area of residence --generic answer ---you can look up in this link for all nissian recalls --the steering support bolt has nothing to do with your power steering going --but certian nissians do have a recall on powering steering issues --recalls can also be for a certian number and or location of sale --lot more recall on vehicles are done to vehicles up in the north east due to weather conditions rusting of components ect --also besides this link you can enter your vehicle problems and check on recalls and the major complaints that other owners have had https://www.nissanusa.com/recalls-vin/#/#/Home

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban


The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
