why dont you yry and find some one with the plastic/wax balnk that is with the ford trucks when they are new then all you do is insert the blank and pull it out and then take it to get keys made.

i know its a long shot but i found on at a local junk yard when i had this problem

But if that's the case, there are way too many combinations for trial and error, no question about that.

It would then need to be disassembled and decoded, another time consuming process.
That is no more than 5 - 10 mins -- I was watching the locksmith when he re-keyed my ignition because the overlapping pin didn't match my door lock. (the ignition cylinder broke on me, I bought a new one from Ford and replaced it myself, but then I had to use 2 keys from that point on, and I wanted to go back to one key)

The removal and decoding of door lock. removal and reprogramming of ignition lock, making separate ignition only, door only, and combined keys [yes, I got all these ] and reassembly took about 1 hour, and I think I paid around $50 for everything. I did remove the door panel a day before, to provide quick access to the door lock.

I thought that was a great deal, even if it was in a small, rural city.

That is a great deal, all the locksmiths I've talked to around here are asking a lot more than that.

You know where I might find these plastic/wax blanks?

Ignition cylinder stuck in lock position

My Ignition cylinder stuck in lock position and I'm trying to get it out without messing anything up so that I can replace it with a new one. I have a 1992 Ford F-150 & it does have tilt steering. If you can look it up in your books that would be awesome.

Post back with info ,I have the books with the info on pulling the switch.


Lost your job yet?
