    The 2 key system. Just like most cars in the 70's and 80's, one for the ignition that were squared and one for the doors and trunk that were round. Great video!!

    I had to replace the ignition cylinder in my 2002 Chevy Malibu a few months ago..I bought it brand new off eBay for $27 vs $160 at Autozone..

    I had a 99 Aurora and that thing had 2 different keys from the factory. Never really used it since it had a remote but still

    im surprised the customer didn't go with the cheapest option and you give them a screw driver and theres the key lol

    A dealership for that brand of car can sell you a new ignition switch and new keys after getting the key code from the VIN number, negating the need for two different keys (ignition and 2nd key for doors and trunk). Had it done on a Chevy Malibu that I bought used years ago. Person has to prove they own the car (registration or title).

    Nothing wrong with 2 keys. I have one for ignition and one for the boot lid. Trouble was they were both black and looked the same. Solution:- bottle of the wife’s nail varnish 😃👍. Now boot lid key has bright red fob. Job done click. You have a nice day👍

    rust -eze… its the rear end formula. when you like a little ass play.

    Changed the key and tumbler but never mentioned electrical wires and connections. I only see one tab on the unit and Ray never mentioned it or connected to it. What gives? TIA

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Clark says:

    Hope you feel better soon buddy.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Clark says:

    That’s set up almost like my 05 tundra. Good job taking care of the panels

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Meade says:

    If I was the customer, having two sets of keys would be annoying, and I would probably opt for the extra cost to have 2 new keys made.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Hanks says:

    Toyota…needs new tumbler
    Mercedes…needs new tumbler , half the drive train , computer modules and a team of techno dudes.

    Face facts Ray, you're just not depressing enough

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Bottoms says:

    Here’s the scoop. If you go to a locksmith they will be able to code cut a new key. Meaning the new key will be cut to factory specs. Cheaper than a new ignition. We charge $10 to code cut a new key from the old key. I know this because I do it every day.

    Gravy work on those vehicle

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Cuss says:

    Factory keys are stronger metal than aftermarket keys. Always write down the key number, and save an original key in case duplicates need to be made later on.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Cuss says:

    The door locks on my 1988 Mazda truck could be opened by pretty much anything. I bought a set from RockAuto and installed those, and kept my ignition tumbler factory as is the fuel door lock. I thought having separate keys would bug me, but it hasn't, so I scrapped plan to get them all keyed alike.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Smith says:

    I love your channel but As I own this truck with the very same issue. It’s not the key. There’s a bushing in the shifter. It’s the cause. Google sometimes is win.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars momurderah says:

    Really? It was more expensive to have a key made? I had a similar issue on my older Toyota truck and I had to remove the passenger side door lock and take it to the dealership. Apparently, that has the key code on it so they made me a new original key for around $12

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Commando602 says:

    Tacoma…..there are 2 sets of two ribber bushings in the gear shifter that need to be replaced also.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Bush says:

    I would rather change an engine than try to change anything in the dash. So fiddly and you have to lay under it.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars the wizzard says:

    I haven't seen a plain metal car key in over 25 years.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David says:

    Keys have to be reprogrammed to the car after changing tumbler. Surprisingly this was not a problem on this car. Weird.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Los Angelos says:

    didnt hear you explaining its dangerous to be able to take out key while driving, because steering lock may kick in

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aft says:

    why not just get new set all round?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aft says:

    oh god had a good laugh at the rear end formula lol

    As someone from the Netherlands enjoying your content after one video popped up in recommended, I do wonder what's up with all the ding-ding noises the cars make.. is that a US only thing?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rod Pulliam says:

    A good locksmith can take both keys an make 1 I've done it

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MisterGank says:

    I still think calling a locksmith would have been a better option OR ordering an unassembled KIT so that the door could still match.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Miller says:

    well, poor customers. Having two keys like everyone else used to have before the whole "you only need one key to make you life easier" decision by the big three. Which was just before the whole "all you really need is a button".

    You need a CPAP breathing machine ray else the snoring and sore throat will happen everyday. It works great. Get a sleep stufy at your doctor

    If the customer has to they maybe able to have the door locks re-keyed.

    Why do cars in USA do the ding ding sounds?

    Thanks for taking the time out of your day to record and narrate all the helpful videos that you do. I've definitely benefited from the skills you have shared.

    Recently, I was helping a friend with an issue similar to this with her 1998 Toyota Sienna. Not only was she having intermittent issues with the ignition cylinder sticking, but also with the door lock cylinders. I advised her to have the local Toyota dealer cut a new key using the key code (no trace cuts). About $15 later all was well.

    I'm shocked that the local dealer cost for a key cut from the VIN code was more expensive than replacement of the ignition cylinder (parts and labor). I'd imagine that your shop likely charged around one hour for your time, plus parts.

    Do you have any concerns with the old and worn key to continue being used in the door locks? Seems likely problems will occur at some point.

    Being former GM.SAAB and independent mechanic here in Sweden, I have a hard time to understand how You are employed, as You obviously have to provide your own tools and other equipment?
    Is that normal in the US ?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trevor Parks says:

    If you take it to a locksmith they can redo the door locks to the new key with out to much issue

    I have an Isuzu rodeo of the 1995.5 model year variety that exhibits the same issues sometimes. Not that the ignition necessarily gets stuck in the on/run position, but that the key is so worn that Sometimes it’s hard to turn on. It seems to exhibit the issue more on a cold day. I have tried to find some replacement keys to have cut, but I don’t know if the blade is different on the replacement key the locksmith cut for me, but it does not even fit properly in the ignition Tumblr or the door locks for that matter. Every time I go in and ask for parts or something for my Isuzu rodeo I always get strange looks. Am I weird for wanting to keep it going?
