This is very easy to replace. Had to replace my ignition switch on my 96 ford explorer ... Just went to Auto Zone got the switch, which was cheap and then changed it. Has instructions with it, but there is a tiny hole on the steering wheel column that you need something small to fit in and there is a spot you need to push in there, may have to wiggle around to find it, you will know when you find it and the ignition will pop out and then just pull it out, take the new one line it up and pop it in. Job done. :)

Would changing an ignition switch affect the operation of my seatbelts

No. Probably got something down in the buckle part. Coins sometimes get in them. Look in it. You will need something small to dig out what's in there. Paper clips work great.

Ford Explorer 97 - cranks but won't start sometimes

I don't see anywhere where you replaced the drive belt or the fuel filter it could be building up pressure in the fuel pump causing the sending unit to stick but before you do all this get a digital volt meter and check out the crank sensor I'm just asking because it has happened to me if you have a lot of keys on one key ring it can damage the ignition switch so check out the crank sensor and the ignition switch first

Do my 2004 dodge intrepid have a kill switch?

Your dodge has an antitheft system that shuts down the ignition and fuel system when the lock was tampered with. This is why they did not take the car your anti theft system did exactly what it was designed to do. You will need to get it to the dealer to get the system reset.
