the ignition switch has gone bad and the car won't start. only from the starter. if I get a new one will I still use the same key? or can I use a small doorbell type switch hidden under the steering column some where like a cut off switch? that's 2 se-r's that the ignition switch has gone bad. Any one else experience this before ? Fill me in please.

On my 91 CRX my ignition started smoking one day. I was like WTF!?
Smoke was coming out my steering column like a Cheech & Chong flick. I took it to a shop and they just swapped out the ignition part but not the key part. Does that make sense?
I still use the same key.

just finished. put an automotive push switch like the ignited one and a friend wired it to the starter wire in steering column area. I hid the switch so only I know where it's at.(cut off switch and I still need the keys also to start it) similar to the ignited switch for about 5 bucks without the light. auto zone sells the lighted ones also. pretty cool cut off sw. and saved cost of repairing old one.
