I am replacing the entire assembly on my car because of lost keys and somewhere along the line the ignition cylinder became jammed up with something. So now I'm ready to install the new part and I'm wondering if (in order to bypass reprogramming these new keys) I can either switch out and keep my old switch or if I can put the old chip, yes keys were found, old chip new key? Thanks so much if you can help. This site is great.

Just to clarify, you found your old keys and you just want to replace the key cylinder at this point so that you don't need to get new keys and program them to the new switch? If this is the case, it does appear you replace just the cylinder.

However, you cannot remove the chip and swap that over. You would need to keep the old keys with the old switch or new keys with the new switch. They do not interchange.
