You have to obtain the key code number from the dealer. If you do not have it, they will require proof of ownership and the old key.
I am not sure if you can take the truck down but that will solve lots of ownership issues.

It would be cool if you can go to the dealership that sold the vehicle. Most keep pretty good records based on VIN numbers.

1998 chev 1500, 5.0, automatic trany. Why do I have to activate the starter relay by hand to get engine to start?

Have you used a different relay ? Look on the bottom of the relay ,see pin 86 ? Test for B+ voltage where it plugs into the relay / fuse box while someone turns the key to start ! Is there B+ voltage . Before replacing the ignition switch and the neutral safty switch did you test for battery voltage coming from the ignition switch ? Pin 85 goes to ground , you can check this with a ohm meter . Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? In the start position voltage from the ignition switch goes through 10 amp crank fuse . Fuse #8 located in the I/P fuse box .

Why do I have no fire?

Possible ignition switch. Check all ignition fuses with a test light and key on, if there is one or more that doesn't have power it will need the switch. Also if it is a 4.3l engine it could be distributor.

2003 chev suburban starts & runs but the light in the dash that shows the lock & the car remains on. I recently changed the ignition switch, could it just need reprogramming?

If you just have a light on the dash on go to autozone and they will extract the codes and tell you what's wrong before spending money where you don't have to!

2003 dodge 1500 ram engine will not turn off after i turn off ignition and take key out

My guess would be a stuck relay or something with the key switch.
You could pull the relays to see if one will kill the engine, or check for power at the key switch.

My 1990 Chev blazer 1500 with 350 engine all of a sudden died while I was driving. battery is good and engine cranks but wont start. I think it's an ignition problem but not sure.

could be ignition switch, crank sensor or cam sensor, neutral safety switch. If you can get a scan tool, with OBD I plug for gm you will be able to pull code/codes. Better than removing /replacing parts until you find problem. Two of my customers have had the same problem, it was the ignition switch on one and the crank sensor on the other.
