1998 Pontiac Trans Am

Electrical problem
1998 Pontiac Trans Am V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 99500 miles

Looks like the Pass Key feature on the ignition switch has finally gone out and will not allow the car to crank. The security light comes on after each attempt and after three minutes will allow another try. Up until now three or four attempts has worked. No luck now. Battery is OK.
I know the dealer is too expensive on repairs. Is there a way to bypass this or a cheap good fix?
