Before you purchase a replacement ignition switch lock cylinder from anyplace else, we believe you should be aware of some very important considerations. If your vehicle is less than 14 years old, most switches you purchase from other sources will not work in your vehicle without additional work and expense. If your vehicle has a computer chip key, then you will most likely pay $100-$200 more if you do not purchase your ignition switch from

In the "good old days", when your ignition switch went bad, you went down to the auto parts store, handed them a $20 bill and took home a new switch with two new keys. Since cars back then didn't have computer chip keys and the door key was a separate key, it was a pretty simple process to put the new switch in and put the new keys on your key ring. These days, if you have computer chip keys and you buy a new ignition switch lock cylinder, with keys included, and install that pre-packaged switch, you will find out that the new switch will not start your vehicle.

The reason for this is the computer system in your vehicle knows that the new keys are not the correct keys and it will not allow your car to start. To make matters worse, those keys included with the switch can never even be programmed to start your vehicle because they don't have the computer chips inside them. So you will now have to purchase additional computer chip keys and have them cut and programmed to your vehicle. This will set you back another $100-$200 or so. And when you get done with the process, your new keys won't even fit your door. You vehicle is no longer original. You have to throw away the set of keys that came with the new lock since they aren't good for anything now. So now you have to carry your old keys and the new keys.
