sorry for the delay............
Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
You need the use of Dealer Scan Tool to pinpoint & Reprogram, as likely the Immobilizer Ring is damaged & IF you used a "different" Ignition Switch Cylinder, it will have to be Programmed to the BCM / PCM
Apprx 1 hour labor, as there is NO Customer Input without "one" working Key that Starts the vehicle
