93? Weren't they still using the same key for the door as the ignition?




In this case no.... All the fords I ever owned the door key was round or oval, and had were not interchangeable with the door...




FWIW, I have a 1998 Ford Ranger and a 2006 Ford Escape - for both vehicles the door keys are also the ignition key.

Replacing door lock cylinders on cars with manual locks is pretty simple. Looks like the lock cylinders are only about 25$. If I were in your position, that'd be my solution.

Thanks for all the input...

I'm afraid I don't have much patience for mechanic ing!..... I get angry quick.. that is were the booze actually helps me... I say, "screw it", after a few minutes and do something I'm better at!!.... :lol:

In this case the van is very old school... manual windows, no auto door locks etc... a base model I guess...
The door key is not mirrored opposite the ignition key, like all those I have owned before... I think I still have a set of keys to my long gone 92 explorer... I'll dig those out just for giggles...

If I recall, the car companies only made so many combinations of keys, so I thought a VIN number might hold a code.... I had to get a new key for one of my ATV;'s... Nelly Belle.. all I had to do was pull the switch out a bit and read a number, and the dealership went and got me a replacement, out of the back... and Nelly is a 95.. I'm hoping it won't be much of a pain..

I have as much need as many.. maybe more, to secure my stuff up here... I have a very valuable dog, as well as a few guns with me most the time. And I have had stuff stolen out of my vehicles before... such as my (dad's), torches, etc.....

I appreciate all the input... I'll start calling tomorrow.. since this all took place on a weekend... figures.... right!.... :D

I'm just hoping NOT go the pad lock route..... :roll:

Konichiwa amigo's.....

Good luck! Hmmm, you are a Japanese Mexican? :shock: :mrgreen:

That would be the new PATS (chip) key.

I had 4 fords from the early 80s to the late 90s and the same key worked everything. Except there was a valet key that only opened the doors and ignition, not the trunk or glove box. Given the price you paid I suspect some salvaging and replacing of parts happened. FIL had an Aerostar from the early 80s that ran like a champ.

10 cut keys did doors and ignition, 5 cut had separate keys.

If you can find a junk yard lock with key I think the door lock cylinders just have a wavy clip on the back to hold them in? Pretty easy to change out.

I looked, and I apparently don't have that old Ford "master key" anymore.

That said, Ranger PATS keys aren't huge monsters.

I called a locksmith in Wasilla, and he said $50, to make a key for the door. I hope he remembers that price when I get there!!!
I thought that was pretty cheap!!
Anywhoo.... it will take me 3 weeks or so to get enough $$$ together to make a run down and grab supplies for next winter. But... at least it looks like an easier cheaper fix than I was thinking!!
