keys again

Your idea sounds by far the best to me... how much should a kit cost?

and should the trunk, door, and ignition key all be the same??

because people have told me that.... but i have 1 key for the ingition and it seems that it fits into the door but wont turn

and the trunk key works, but doesn't even fit in the key hole

A lock cylinder set usually comes with 2 door locks and 1 truck lock and 2 keys that are matched to the lock cylinders. The kit runs about $10 - $20. Personally who cares if you have to carry a seperate key for the ignition...Gm has done that for years
At least you'll be able to lock/unlock your doors.

If you don't want to change out the cylinders, then go to a locksmith and he can cut a key to fit the door off of masters that they have.

Ponybuster....Hook the rod to the latch. If it isn't hooked up thats why it isn't working.

Problem Solved... thanks for all the help

I finally got to opening my door panel.... i took the u clip off the door and slid the lock cylinder out...

it wouldn't work at all before

so i took all the tumblers out and re did the cylinder exactly as it came out...... now it works (much oil and lube was used) 1 cylinder works perfectly the other only has minor turning issues but now i have doors that lock

thanks for all your posts and all the great help!!!
