DOES A SILVERADO (AUTOMATIC) NEED A CHIP ON THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER TO START.

1998 Chevrolet Truck • 120,000 miles

I have a 1998 chevy in which I have been told will not start because I replaced the ignition lock cylinder. I trashed the old one and did not pay attention to it. A mechanic told me that the truck will not start because the cylinder does not have a chip on it. I just went to my local gm dealership and they said that it does not need one. I am stumped. My mechanic told me the is sure that is the problem and to look for one at the junkyard. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you,

Is the security light on solid or flashing?Does it crank no start or no crank no start?I posted the security system description for you you to read.
