No all you will need to do is have the ignition switch in the replacement column made to fit your regular key it will start right up

it sounds like you may have a bad ignition switch, check all the main fuses 20 and 30amp under the hood also check body ground straps, otherwise you will need to remove the plastic cover around the steering colum and using a test light check for power to each wire at the ignition switch , every wire will have voltage in some position of the key being turned

High beams on constantly!


The Flash to Pass feature must press a rod down somewhere when you pull back on the Column stick control. Seems like a spring is broke to reset the control. This may be a separate piece from the Column switch.

If you remove the column switch and see where the 2 parts meet you could pull the stuck part back through the column. You may have a bare wire in the column especially with a tilt wheel.

95 regal wont start change the stater no change change the ignition switch on the colum no change what could it be


The security light is on or flashing? Your key is the one you always have uned or is it different? The key has a black chip near the handle, Is it clean? The wires that it connectes to are right inside the lock is it clean and not buggered by the wrong key or other object? The wires that come off this connection break near the lock.( flex every time you turn the key) A scanner connected to the car will pick the problem. Rember that the car starts in neutral and park both but not in gear this switch on top of the tranny fails and sometimes it'll work in neutral. Jumper wire at starter makes it crank? with key on start. Crank and not start your back to the security system. Cars plenty old enought to fail
