Replaced steering column with a used one complete w key will this cause no start and if so what's the process to reset or do we replace key lock cylinder?
My car has 145000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
This may potentially cause a no start issue as the keys are usually equipped with a microchip in them that is mapped/flashed from the dealer specifically to the vehicle’s computer. I would recommend having the new key re-flashed to the car’s computer by taking it to the dealer where this can be done. If you’d like a second opinion on this, consider having the no start condition inspected firsthand by one of our mobile technicians. Best of luck.
