How do you replace the ignition switch on a 2003 Chevy Malibu?

Most locksmiths can replace and program the ignition. If the key can be turned to the accessory position, then the lock cylinder can be removed by depressing a detent and pulling the cylinder out of the housing. Taking this to a locksmith might be much cheaper than to the dealer. If the key will not turn, then more aggressive measures must be taken. There are a couple bolts that retain the housing in the dash. The passlock device is held into the housing by the ignition and the three wires will have to be cut. Leave enough room to reconnect using wire connectors. This will not effect the device. The transmission interlock cannot be removed if the lock is in the 'off' position unless the back of the housing is removed. Care must be taken because of the 5 pins, springs, and connector switch can be dropped or lost. If the key will not turn back to the off position - there might also be an issue with the transmission interlock cable which feeds into the back of the ignition housing. An adjustment may be made to that which will let the key be turned all the way to the off position.
