remove your radio, there will be 2 bolts to undo, switch will slide into dash, unplug harness turn key to remove cable, if ignition wont turn you may have to take ignition apart to remove cable. reinstall in reverse procedure. will need to relearn new key to be able to start. try to start, leave key in run position, theft/security light will be blinking. leave on for 15 min or light stops blinking, turn off turn back to run without trying to start. leave on for another 15 min. turn off then start
remove the plastic cover from the steering colum then you will see the switch on the left side remove the 2 screws you will need to turn the key to release the switch reverse to put together then you will need to relearn the switch to the body control module this is done by turning to crank and leaving it in the run position til the security light stops flashing you will need to do this three time after the third time remove the key for a min then start the car if possible but on a battery charger if the battery goes died during the relearn you will need to start over
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.
Insert ignition key,turn forwards to run. Just till red lights & theft/alarm light goes on. Do not try to start or engage starter.Leave on till light stops flashing. It may take up to 10 minutes. Once light stops flashing turn key off. Then start car & let run for awhile.
anti theft system enabled. try to start it then leave the key in the on position may take 11-15 mins til the light goes out for it to relearn the new ignition cylinder. may take 2 tries when the light goes out turn it off then try starting it.
buy a new battery if this dosnt work trying looking into a starter or ignition relay or coil pack this all will make it not turn over but the radio and clock will work, also look into if your security light is on if so the key could be broke which would make it a problem cause then you have to go to a dealership and buy a new one which might cost a bit. hope this helped :)
Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
check starter relay in the power distribution center, then check main power lead at starter 12v all the time and small lead on starter 12v with key turned to start. If there is power there, starter is bad. Ignition switches do fail, but far more infrequently than the items I listed. Good luck.....any additional questions, ask!
