the key on a 1994 is a 10 cut key, 6 cuts fit the doors 5 cuts fit the ignition (could be vise-versa) with one cut overlapping so you can't do it that way on your t-bird sorryBryan59EC said:Not sure on the fords
If the doors and ignition are the same---(they are on my 94 Thunderchicken)
Take a door lock cylinder, instead of the ignition switch.
my '67 Falcon has the square/ octagon ignition key, also operating the door locks, the trunk is the only thing that uses the round trunk key, for what it's worth. I have an original set of keys for it and there is the code # stamped on the keys themselves.rustybronco said:I'm not sure about 66 being a dual key system ( i can check monday when i get to work) but the rh door lock cylinder used to have the code stamped in it for the doors and trunk (fb and 4 digits), get a cylinder for the ignition lock and drill it out and replace it you won't be able to remove it w/o a key and yes a locksmith will be able to make a key for the doors its only a 5 cut key. the glove box used to only have 3 of the 5 pins in it so that ain't going to work.
Ya know---I never noticed how many cuts were on these----lot of cuts.rustybronco said:the key on a 1994 is a 10 cut key, 6 cuts fit the doors 5 cuts fit the ignition (could be vise-versa) with one cut overlapping so you can't do it that way on your t-bird sorry
I think about 250 combinations---maybe lessMARTINSR said:And by the way, on sixties GM cars there were only a small amount of different keys. I got a 62 Chevy once without any keys. Went into the garage got my GM key ring with spares and on the third key opened the trunk.
bryan 5 cuts.Bryan59EC said:But----thinking the security of the 60's was not as intense----would it not be feasable for him to use a door lock to get an ignition made??
only about 5-6 cuts on those keys.
1997 t-bird and 05 ranger are both 8 cut key's and take the same blank.Bryan59EC said:I think about 250 combinations---maybe less
There is also a specific pattern used in the coding, to prevent excessive wear of the tumblers. No key should have a #1 tumbler next to a #5. The tumbler at the end of the key that is first inserted into the lock is 1,2, or 3. Never a 4 or 5. They also are not supposed to have more than 2 steps between tumblers.
a 24313 is okay
a 14514 is not okay
Wish I could do that double cut on my Birds----94-97---Different key blanks
I',m gonna try my 97 bird to my 05 Ranger---those keys look to use the same blank.
I had all my GM keyed alike when I was in Utah----88 Bonny,78 Chev K-10, 79 Chev C-10
done it a few times myself.MARTINSR said:You know the double sided Ford keys? Well, the locks don't have double sided tumblers. The key is simply double sided for conveniance, you can put the key in the lock either way and it works.
Well, check this out. I have two Fords, a 95 SHO and a 96 Windstar. I had the gal at the local hardware store cut me one key for both cars! Yep, one on one side and the other on the other side. It wasn't easy as she was putting up a fight "You CAN'T DO THAT". :nono: I told her just do it, write no guarantee on the receit I don't care. She did it, and I use it every day.
