$150.00 per key? may i suggest somewhere in the uk as the key replacement system is much cheaper. is it a blade style key or barrel? if blade and you cant find anyone who will do it then reply to this with email add. and i will get in touch with a few of my locals and send you details as this is around £30-£40 at the most. regards scott.

it would be cheaper to have a locksmith make a key to fit your old ignition lock. I dont know why you didnt do that, before ordering a lock cylinder. Nothing on a MB is cheap. the key is the cheapest thing there is.

1990 dodge dynasty Lost keys want to know my options besides locksmith. Could I buy amother ignition lock?


You can buy another lock, but you need the original key to get the old lock out. Other than brute force, a locksmith seems to be your only solution, and then there is the problem of having mismatched keys for ignition and doors etc.

buy a new ignition and if you dont want to replace the original with the new one just have an approved locksmith re-key your ignition and door locks to use the new one.

I lost the keys to my 96 windstar. I can't seem to get the ignition out. I pushed the pin on the bottom but no luck. The locksmith wants $150 to make a new key. Can I drill the pin out?


if you drill the pin out, the ign lock is ruined. A key must be in the lock to remove it. take a lock out of a door and have the locksmith cut a key for it. On some cars the passenger door lock will have the key code on it, but I dont know about your car.

Key will not turn


Do you have a key that was issued by Saturn or one that was re-keyed? I had the same problem with a key that was not the original and it was quickly solved when I had a key made from Saturn along with the keyless remote, it was about $80.00 two years ago. You usually dont get an original key for your car if was a repo or the original key was lost and had to be re-reyed by a locksmith.

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.
