Hi I have a 2002 Aztek and I need some help, trying to change the ignition lock cylinder on our Aztek and having problems, i purchased one at autozone, after fighting to get the old one out for 2 days in the 8million degree heatwave!  Finally got the new one in, was able to roll up the windows and some of the dash lights came on but car wouldnít start, got to investigating and discovered the master key had pk3 stamped on it so autozone told me it was the wrong switch, so I removed and returned that one only to find out they donít have one with the transponder key unless I want to build the tumblers in myself !!  After going to 4 different parts stores, talking to 3 different Chevy dealers, 3 different locksmiths (2 wouldnít touch it 1 thinks the key may be old and worn out, btw itís not the key itís the slide bar) Iím still dead in the water and I need some help to figure this out!!

I have heard that you can take your old PK3 key, and zip tie it to the PK3 transponder, and use a normal ignition lock. But i do not know this for sure

There is a way to bypass the PK3 and anti-theft. We're just not sure how. Our GT has the anti-theft but it does not work and when we got 2 new keys for it, they work fine without programming. I think ours had some sort of DUI type device on it at one time.
