1997 Grand Am GT

I have a 1997 Grand Am GT and plan to replace the ignition lock cylinder with a used one. If I change the lock tumblers to accept the old key, can I avoid having to reprogram? Thanks!

Sure, as long as you don’t damage the chip receiver. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ycqwcbb6wEo/SrqqVsuFfWI/AAAAAAAADYM/cZxe7TSXqE8/s1600-h/DSC02490.JPG
