When would I need a replacement?

Say you have an older pickup truck with the original key code from the dealership, the locking system is likely different than the ignition cylinder. In this kind of scenario, you’ll need to pull the string liner in order to replace the ignition system. Another common complication is a simple wearing out of the system, or in some cases it will stop functioning all together. In this kind of situation, the cylinder will need to be pulled and the pins will need to be replaced.

How long does this process usually take?

Depending on the ignition, it could take anywhere between 2 to 4 hours to complete the service.

What should I expect to pay for the service?

The price will vary depending on the ignition and the process of replacement. High security vehicles often have transponder keys, which include a chiping system. This kind of service is more expensive than a lower security ignition, because lower security vehicles operate with a simple metal key. Services for replacement could cost:

as low as $200, or as high as $650.
