If you do not have an extra programmed key to start the truck then you will need to have the dealer replace the ignition lock cylinder and program new keys. The other problem is you cannot lock or unlock doors and will need new locks put in and new key cut for it also. You can have anyone put in the new ignition but only the dealer can program the keys to work with the PATS anti theft system.
