There was a factory recall for ignition switches in those years. Why don't you check with your dealer first?
I just got a card on mine but haven't got to a dealer yet.

I HAVE REPLACED THE IGNITION SWITCH (THE OLD ONE WAS CRACKED & RETURN SPRING DISPLACED) BUT ENGINE STILL WONT START. THE STARTER MOTOR SPINS WHEN I JUMP THE TWO MAIN TERMINALS ON IT. I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT COULD BE THE RELAY,BUT CANNOT LOCATE IT.
