I have never heard of a column code, do you mean the key code or chip in the key?

No. I call the junkyard to get a price for the ignition switch and was told they have several and they need to know the column code in order to give me the right one


Do not use a wrecking yard ignition switch, you maybe bolting on a bigger problem, switches are really avaliable from your local parts store, you don't need a factory unit.
