Yes, still need help.
It was not, and the mechanic that cleared the codes put the old one back in. So now it simply says key not known, see dealer.
yes John this car will have to do to the dealer to have the ignition key and or ignition lock reprogramed to this car
as the computer is not recognizing the ignition key or ignition lock
having both reprogramed with a scan tool should correct this problem you are having
Well that sucks, what about the original problem of "Steering column locked" was that phantom? or is there probably an existing problem?
its hard to say right now
since you have a new ignition switch have the shop put it in and program it as that could come into play with the steering lock issue
