WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is ordering General Motors to respond by April 3rd to their questions concerning the recall of nearly 1.4-million cars.

At issue is a faulty ignition switch which can shut off the car while it’s operating, with 13 deaths linked to the problem so far. The NHTSA is demanding to know why GM didn’t do anything in 2004 when the problem was found.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra has ordered an internal investigation into why it took a decade to announce the issue.
