Default Does your key have to be reprogrammed if you replace the ignition switch?

My ignition switch is faulty and I am capable of changing it myself. My only concern is the security system; after you replace the ignition switch on an 01 accord does the key/ignition need to be reprogrammed?

if u are replacing the electrical part then no u wolnt have to reprogram nothing......but i must warn u...there is a wire that runs under your entire ing. switch unit that u have to remove to replace the switch...that wire goes to your cable reel and if u pull this wire to hard u will ruin your cable reel...but if u are carful u will be ok...there are 2 "breakoff" bolts that u need to remove i use a small chisle and a hammer to back them out...there not that tight ...once u get them out u can unplug the 2 imoblizer connectors and the 1 ing switch connector thats in the dr side fuse box...from there its simple
