A lock cylinder replacement is much more costly than simply cutting a new key when all keys have been lost. See? Decoding is nothing scary. Our locksmiths take care of your vehicle. We treat them as our own. Don't change your ignition if you don't need to! Give us a call for lost ford keys if you change your PCM!
