Cheapest way would be to really look for a locksmith that can either reproduce your original keys manually(handmade) or through machine that can regenerate your original keys otherwise you'll have to replace new sets of door keys locking mechanism and new set of ignition switch that may be adopted to your steering columns locking devices.

How to start a Ford Contour with out my key

Probably can't be done if it is late enough to be fitted with a security system. In that case the key will have a coded transponder which the system will recognise and send a signal the the engine management to switch it on.

You either need a correctly coded key or remove the engine ECU and have it decoded.

Key broke in the ignition lock

Hello! The only way to get it out without removing the lock cylinder is to pry it out with a dental pick....If that doesn't work, you'll have to remove the lock cylinder and take it to a locksmith or purchase a new cylinder/key...Locksmith may cost around $50 to remove the remainder of the key...Guru...Saailer

I lost my key to my 2000 corolla hatchback, had keys cut with the chip but not the security or central locking how do I now fix the problem

You have to visit either Toyota or a suitably equipped automotive locksmith/electrician to get the new chipped key to work with the car security system.

There's no DIY workaround.

In my 1992 toyota celica, the key wont turn

I've had the same problem with a few older Toyotas. Most likely you need to take your ignition lock cylinder to a qualified locksmith and have it overhauled. Another option is to purchase an all new lock cylinder, but then unless you don't mind having a different key for the ignition, you would have to take the new cylinder to the locksmith to get it re-keyed to match the other locks on the car. Look for a locksmith with a AAA certification. You can order a new cylinder at a reasonable price from sellers on eBay or from

Removing the cylinder is not too difficult - refer to your car's service manual for complete details. Basically you will need to remove the trim panel covering the lock, undo the fastener bolts/screws, and then usually there is a tab on the underside of the cylinder that you will need to push in in order to slide the cylinder out. The catch is that you will need to get the key into the ACC position in order to pull out the cylinder.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

How do I remove and install ignition switch cylinder for a 2000 Cadillac Eldorado

Your famililer with this job or can have someone thats done it before show you as the security system is involved and mistakes will make the car never start again, without real intervention. A professioanl locksmith will save you lots of money by just not failing the first time. The lock cylinder has a key reader that electronally (reads) the key and if your key is missing a dealer or well equiped locksmith with reprogramming experience, is required. May dealers call in a locksmith or a roving mechanic that performs this function as it's a highly specialized proceture.

Changing ignition key switch


From what I remember you need to put the missing key in and then press the cylinder release, a small hole by the ignition switch. Without the key, I guess you would need a locksmith to turn the tumbler then press the switch. Lock pick set anyone?

Sadly even if you hotwired it you wouldnt be able to drive it far. The steering wheel would lock up and you wouldnt be able to turn. However you can call a locksmith who can cut you a new key usually right in your own driveway. Normally they dont charge that much as long as you dont ask them to come over at this very second.
