u mean the key cylinder? the part that the key goes into and turns??? The switch is the electeral part thats on the back half of they key cyl and has nothing to do with a stuck key. Plus one other thing did u just figure out that the key is stuck or have u had some one look at it?? Second will the key not come out of the cly of what??? if that is the case then i doubt its the cly because there is other things that lock the key so it wont come out when turned. If the key wont turn at all to start the car then yes 9 out of 10 the cly is bad.
