Q: Ignition lock replacement.

asked by on

Standard US-279L Ignition Lock Cylinder - Chrome, Direct Fit. Saw one of these available with the two keys. My car has the Pats and the cylinder does also. Will the keys from the new cylinder work or will they need to be programmed?

My car has 78000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The new keys will not be specific to your vehicle and will need to be reprogrammed, even if they fit with a perfect match. If you need further assistance with programming your keys, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
