If you have 2 keys, you can have any place that cuts keys make one, and follow the directions in the owners manual for programming the 3rd key. This is if it is a new key, not a PATS ( PAssive AntiTheft System ) clone. Some lock smiths can make a key that is a duplicate ( both cut, and RFID tag ) for the truck, where no programming is needed.

I was given a 1984 Chevrolet pick-up(54,000 miles. needs freeze plug) from my Uncle with a key half broken in the ignition. I don't have the other part of key. I need to remove the key tumbler so

You will need a trip to the your local parts store. You should be able to buy a brand new lock cylinder for about 15-20 dollars. Tools needed will be a socket set, steering wheel puller, phillips screwdriver, and a set of torques bits and driver. If you pull the steering wheel and unscrew the hazard knob and turn signal arm, then unscrew the turn signal switch you will be able to remove the mounting screw that holds the lock cylinder into the coulmn. install new cylinder and now you have a new key for the truck.

Truck won't start anti-thef light on. Please help.

your key may need to be re-programed to the car --- if you have both original keys then you should be able to flip both of them through the inginion and then the truck should start just fine,, but if one of the keys is a ' clone key ' then you are going to need to go to a automotive locksmith and have the keys and computer re-programed. do not go to the dealer -- they will charge you a lot more than the locksmith will. but try and flip the keys through first,, start with one key, put it in the ignition turn the key to the on position ( NOT start position ) -- wait a few seconds,, then put the next key in ( to the on position ) and wait a few seconds,, then got back to the first key and turn to the on position,, wait a few more seconds and the light should go out --- start the truck. again, you may need your trucks computer re-programmed and since you have the keys the cost will be cheaper than if you had no keys.

I need a replacement key and have the vin number my local dealership says 2003. Cant drive my truck what can I do?

If you have a lock smith that can program PATS keys, they might come to your house to cut and program 2 new keys, else you will need to tow it to the dealer.

Without 2 keys or the WDS / NGS tools from Ford ( or the locksmith PATS equipment ) you cannot add a key to drive it, it needs to be programmed.

Lost keys for chevey truck 2000 utility truck 350 chevey truck need to know how to disable factory alarm system to start the truck

This is close to imposible, you would need a scan tool to reprogram a need chip code into the computer, now if theres no chip the power locks or the door lock should deactivte the alarm system, if you dont have a door key then you would need to remove the door panel and manualy turn linkake on the lock as if it were the key, but i think the 2000 had a key chip.

My key does not work. need a key. $285 is too much to pay for a key. C230. 1998. can i get one cheaper? thanks

I had the same problem with a GMC recently. What I did was take the VIN to GM, and my registration for the truck, and bought a key code from them. Then I took the key code to a locksmith, and had a key made. That cost $20. I think the code was about $40. You should be able to do the same with a Benz. Good luck!

Lost keys to truck got new ignition with keys but still wont start 99 f150

The 1999 F-150 has a PATS ( Passive Anti Theft System ), where te keys need to be programmed to the truck.

For the owner to do this, you need 2 keys ( not 1 key and a clone of the same key ) or you need to have a higher end mechanic / dealer or a PATS programmer locksmith to program the new keys.

The truck basically thinks it is trying to be stolen, and the PATS system is stopping it.
