Do you have the type key with a 'chip' in it? Depending on the make, they can cost in the range of $400. If it's a regular key (hopefully) bring the cars vin and proof of ownership (registration or title) to a dealer, they can make up a key for you for a reasonable charge (I have heard of dealers on occasion doing it for free).

I think you were on the right track with the key lock and ignition switch. It sounds like the lock is not turning the switch far enough.
There are gears between the lock cylinder and switch that may not be aligned up right.
The anti-theft system would prevent the engine from cranking, but the security light should be flashing if the system thinks the truck is being stolen.

How to change key fob battery 2000 911


There is a small depression in the side of the key. Insert a very small screwdriver into the depression and pry the top and bottom of the key loose. The battery is in the center, just pull it out (or pry it a bit with your little screwdriver) and replace. The top just snaps back on.

It does sound like you have a passkey (security) issue. If the BCM does not recognize the key cylinder code the BCM will send a comand to the PCM to shut down the fuel system.
When you say you replace the "ignition switch", was it the switch or the tumbler.
If the tumbler was replaced you will have to relearn the key code.
Let me know if the key tumbler was replaced and I will tell you how to relearn the key code.
Regards.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed
