Default Clock spring replacement

I have numerous electrical problems with my 2003 PT Cruiser, from a previous post PTCruiserSteve suggested the clock spring could be the problem, and I think there may be a problem with the multifunction switch. I have picked up a steering column complete, with the exception of air bag. I was with the mechanic when he removed the steering column and care was taken not to rotate the wheel and it was wired to keep it from rotating. I was going to replace the whole column but switch out the starter cylinder and use the one that is in the car now, there is also a remote starter wired to the cylinder body in the car now. My question, will things still work if I swap cylinders in the replacement stering column?

I've done this swap before.

The only things you have to swap out are the SKIM module and the key cylinder.

I don't know about the remotes starter wire. But I imagine that if you hook it up as before, everything should work as before.

Here the SKIM module from when I swapped out my column:
