Ignition cylinder

If I replace this will I have to buy a new key?

Lock cylinder usually comes with a new key.

It is more likely the electrical ignition switch on the steering column under the dash.
The lock cylinder just moves a rod that goes to the electrical switch.

Lock cylinders are around $40. And come with a blank key, a chipped key would need to be made unless you have done the VATS bypass. A newer Ace Hardware or the dealer can make a key for u. If a new lock cylinder is what u need.
^^^^^ if it cranks but won't start, it's NOT the lock cylinder.

Yes the V-8 ICM is different than the V-6 ICM.

Did you really change the BCM?
If so you need to do the key relearn procedure.
