Lost my key to a 1998 lincoln town car, How can I get one made

Write down you car's VIN number. This will be necessary in finding someone who will help you replace the key. In most cars, the VIN is located on the driver’s side dashboard and is visible through the window, but it may also be located on a rear wheel well or the front of the engine block, in the trunk or door jam, or on the frame of the car between the carburetor and windshield washer.[1]

If you’re not sure where your VIN is on your vehicle you can also look up the number on your car insurance information. It should be in the top left hand corner of each page.

Write down the year, make, and model of your vehicle. Regardless of which option you pursue to get a new set of car keys you're going to need to find out this information. This information will let you know the specific kind of key that you need to open your vehicle. Remember, keys are supposed to be unique!
Image titled Replace Car Keys Step 4
Call a nearby auto locksmith. This should be your first option. They generally they will give you the best deal on a new key, about half as much as it would cost to get a new key from your manufacturer or dealer. Normally they don’t charge to visit the car either. They’ll open your car and then proceed to make you a new key. While hardware stores aren’t generally equipped to create new car keys (as opposed to simply copying them), locksmiths usually have more sophisticated machinery. The older your vehicle, the better the odds that a locksmith will be able to help you with a replacement key. [2]

If you lost a key fob, a good locksmith may be able to help you make a new one – depending on how sophisticated the key was. Additionally, they should be able to help you reprogram the replacement key, though your manual should also have instructions on how to do that. Be sure to bring any other key fobs associated with that vehicle with you, as they sometimes won’t work until the new key is programmed. [3]

Look for discounted replacement keys / key fobs online. After market keys or even factory replacements can sometimes be found online for less than it would cost you to get them direct from the manufacturer. You may have success with a reputable dealer on eBay, but otherwise look for companies intended specifically to replace car keys. Again, the older the vehicle and simpler the key, the easier it will be to replace. Amazon is a good place to start.

Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key


There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.


Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:


Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15


There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.


Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.


- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

Key stuck in ignition

You may need to remove the steering wheel column plastic covers to access the ignition key mechanism. Once this is done, you can remove the entire key tumbler set with the key or try to work the key loose. Be sure to push the key release button usually locate on the column near the key switch. Be sure you used the correct key also and if you have, it may be time to replace the complete ignition switch, which comes with a new key too. Having heavy items on your key ring can cause premature wear of the ignition switch.

You also could call a locksmith to remove the key, but this may cost anywhere from $45 to $100+.

99 Mitsubishi mirage, the wife lost second key, can i still replace ignition tumbler

If you replace the ignition switch tumbler then you also will have to get a new key and that will cost you 2 keys and reprogramming. Cheaper just to get 1 new key and program it from yours or the car.

I have lost the only key to my 2004 Dodge Durango. How can I have another key made and at what cost?

Did you key have a "Micro-Chip" inside of it? if it did then you could only get replacements at the dealer anyways. Make Sure they have the VIN number of the truck and they can make another key for you....takes a little while...and costly... about $125.00 i only the dealer can do it.
If its just a regular key..then you may be stuck replacing the tumbler in the ignition switch with a new set of keys... (cheap if you are a do it yourselfer) Can get a ignition switch AND the key(s) at a junkyard and take it apart and swap it.
I hope this helps direct your next course of action.

Lost keys require new locks for BMW X3

replacing the complete lock set with the EWS control unit can be expensive as the control unit will also need to be programed and/or encoded, however if the lost keys cannot be found and you are sure they cannot be used to steel you car you can just order replacement keys from your local bmw dealer. hope this is of some help. You will also nead to disable the lost keys if you order replacements rather than a complete set.

Wheel lock key

As long as you know the key number, go back to your dealer.

If you don't know the number then you will have to get them all removed by professional ie the dealer or a tyre centre and buy a new set of bolts/nuts.
