Time to take apart the steering column.
Mine is a little older than yours. But if they are at all similar this will be easier than you think.
You'll need to remove the two piece steering column shroud (just behind the steering wheel). Screws located underneath. You may have to jockey with the column tilt and be a bit of a contortionist, but don't get frustrated. Just getting the bottom off should be enough.
On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts ( 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.
Hope this helped.

the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

1. Try an online auto computer rebuilder. The problem is the Eprom is set to a specific number for the switch. The number of the new switch has to reprogrammed. The only other work around is to obtain a matching computer and switch. If the individual chip is not soldered in you could send it out to be flashed mail order.
