My deville at times won't turn over when I hit the ignition. It just makes a slight click in the dash. Eventually, after several tries, it starts. Plenty of battery power, and I had the security system checked and replaced the relay. Mechanic told my probably the ignition switch and said it would be about $400 to fix. I found an ignition swith for $60 that appears it jsut plugs in. Is this easy to replace? And do you think this is the problem?
Thanks!

This is not a repair I would recommend for a novice mechanic. It is more difficult than it appears.
