Hey all, with all the issues with ignition cylinders I thought I would post this as a way to help as much as possible.
We can code a new lock cylinder to match your existing keys.
The new cylinder is $49.46 and I do have to cut a key blank for $1.65 (non-pats) to test it, the one catch there is that I can not ship precut keys due to Ford policy.
Shipping a coded cylinder is fine because it won't do you any good without the keys.
I just need a VIN or key code and the fee for coding the cylinder is $20.00.
So basically it would be $78.61 coded and shipped (UPS ground) which is about $20.00 less than retail on the cylinder alone.
My details are in my sig but the number is 1-800-328-9552 ask for Steve or Mike M.
If your cylinder is jammed or completely locked up you may want to take it in for repair but if it's just starting to act up it's easy to do at home.
Cylinders that are not completely trashed can usually be lubricated and made to work quite well for quite a while, just see your local locksmith for good grease.
