Ignition key question

Bought a 99 cc. It came with 2 ford keys. Both work in the ignition. Neither work in any of the locks. PO said that there was a ford recall and the ignition was replaced. Anyone heard of this? Can you rekey the 3 lock cylinders?

I don't know on the recall but they can be rekeyed. Ford use to sell a kit that came with the ignition lock cylinder and 2 front door locks for the OBS trucks. I bought a set for my 95 for less the $50-$60 If I remember correctly.

You can get them re-keyed no problem.

I would just let the dealership do it for ya. It honestly shouldnt cost much but I would inquire about that before committing.

On another site guys were complaining that the stealer wanted close to $400 to do the job on theirs.

Really, I've done this on some other cars including a couple of my Porsches and they weren't hard so I'm hoping the same is true here. Just wanted to know if anyone had 1st hand knowledge.

Usually you an pull out the tumbler and reposition the slides so your key works.

I have no "first hand " knowledge. I stood there and watched the parts guy do it quite a bit but that was 10 yrs ago. I was thinking you had to insert the correct length sliders in. It wasnt as simple as just repositioning them. I know he had a big bag of parts for the tumblers.

Yeah, you have to insert the correct length sliders in there. It's probably $400 for the dealer to re-key every lock and do all of the labor. It is probably much cheaper if you buy the two cylinders from the dealer and have them key them, then install the cylinders yourself. I bought a new lock for my tailgate, it was like $40 including keying it.
