'05 Cobalt Ignition Issues and Questions

Hello all, we have an '05 Balt with a laundry list of issues, but the one that is driving the wife and I crazy is the fact that the car thinks the key is in the ignition all of the time. Once in a GREAT while when we pull the key (if we can) you hear the *CLICK* withing the tumbler, and the door does not chime when we open it. Other then that, it chimes all of the time letting us know we left the key in the ignition.

I was wondering what it takes to replace those things and what is interchangeable.

Do I have to go to a dealer? Can I get one from a salvage yard with the key?
Can I get one from a yard and rekey it?

Just wondering how to go about this.

Thanks a ton

Jesse

Nothing? Called the dealership last week and got a quote for the issue. Just under 1200.00 to do the whole deal. Apparently we JUST missed the recall of this somewhat common problem.

With only 80k on the clock and the issues the car is having, as often as they are occurring, I might have to trade this thing in for what it is worth.
