When I look up the part it says with key or w/o. Will the key I have work with the new lock w/o?

Expert:  Gary replied 4 years ago.
it depends if its codded to your old key
does your door key also turn your ignition ?

yes

Expert:  Gary replied 4 years ago.
ok i personnaly would key the lock with the key as then you will have the original key for the door lock and use the new key for the ignition
if you get it without the key a lock smith will have to code the ignition lock to your original key code and charge you to do this
