Re: ignition key switch
You have to use a pin or paper lip to insert in hole in igmition switch to release the lock cylinder. The key has to be in "on" position I think.
Disconnect battery ground cable (14301) .
Turn lock cylinder key to RUN position.
Place a 3.17mm (1/8-inch) diameter wire pin or small drift punch in hole in upper steering column shroud (3530) under ignition switch . Press retaining pin while pulling out on ignition switch to remove it from lock cylinder housing (22074) .
Install ignition switch by turning it to RUN position and pressing retaining pin. Insert ignition switch into lock cylinder housing . Ensure ignition switch is fully seated and aligned in interlocking washer before turning key to OFF position. This will permit cylinder retaining pin to extend into lock cylinder housing hole.
Rotate ignition switch, using lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.

try another key. the key could be worn where read coil in the ignition switch lock cylinder and immobilizer control module and ecm dont recognize ignition key or ignition switch key lock cylinder failing.
one possibility could be the ignition switch itself also when you ordered the new key did they order a replacement key or an additional key. an additional key will work right away. a replacement key has to sit in the ignition switch for awhile before it can turn into the first position and then it will take awhile before it will turn to the second position. this is because the key and ignition switch use a rolling code type security system. it changes every time the car is started. so it could take awhile for the new key you got to syncronize with the ignition switch. hope this helped
if it turns over from below,then its in the ignition switch and this also feeds power to the e.c.m. to make the engine fire so you either have a bad switch contact or the hot 12 volt wire to the ignition switch
