Ignition Switch/ Key Question

Hi guys - this may be a dumb question, but here I go!! I am going to have to have a new ignition switch installed. Will my existing keys work, with no reprogramming or anything? Thanks.

If you are installing only the electrical portion of the switch (as shown in the link), your key will work.

Check out this post: Ignition switch replacement

It has information about a special screwdriver that may make the DIY replacement of the switch a bit easier.
