I am having a starter/starting problem with my '05 GCL 3.7L. When you turn the ignition key to start the starter solenoid engages but the starter does not turn. Repeatedly turning the key on and off eventually gets it started. I have replaced the starter and battery and the problem remains. I am going to replace the ignition switch which is part of the ignition key cylinder assembly. Does anyone know if replacing the ignition switch will require a reprogram of the theft protection chips on my keys?? The ignition switch is a $42 item and is the last thing I am going to replace before biting the bullet and taking the truck to the dealer to get robbed. But I'm not sure if its feasible to replace it myself, primarily because of the anti-theft chips in the keys.
Thanks for your help,
