security code on on 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

after reading all the problems being had by many individuals with the security system causing this car not to start, we were going to replace the ignition switch. this seems to be the thing most people do first to fix this problem. apparently this is a dealer fix only but we were wondering what would be a ball park figure on the cost.

you mean the lock cyliner. that is what controls the security system. it is not necessarily a dealer fix. we do it all the time. it is a process to repair and takes time.
the cost is anywhere from 350-500.
