Hello. If the car needs a new ignition then you will need to replace the ignition lock cylinder along with the ignition switch. It sounds like they both may be damaged. Once they are installed the new key will need to be programmed to the vehicle using a factory scan tool. Before you buy the car, I suggest having a pre-purchase inspection done by a qualified technician, like one from YourMechanic, to pinpoint any other issues and ensure a solid investment. Good luck.
