Do I replace the ignition switch, lock cylinder or both?

Sometimes it is difficult to remove the key from the ignition lock cylinder. The dash shows a flashing green key. The lock cylinder is worn but, I need to know if the ignition switch should be replaced. When turning the key to the start position the car does not crank at all. The radio will sometimes go off in the run position when jiggling the key.

You might need both. The Honda dealership can mach the cylinder and key to your car, so you won't have one key for the door and the other for the ignition.
