Simple fix and we are back on the road
Product was easy to install and has corrected two issues related to starting:
1) The engine seemed to crank slowly/sluggish even with a new battery showing 12.4+ volts
2) One day the key could not be turned in the ignition.
Swapping out this part has resolved both issues. Not often I find a $10 part with 30 minutes of effort brings me this much relief!

This part fit & worked perfectly. The only hard part was contorting myself to get under the dash & try to remove the little set screws. Luckily, I was able to get my wife to do it. She would make a great tech. I highly recommend getting a short handle jewelers flat head screwdriver to change it out.
