Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. The ignition lock cylinder and key need to be replaced. The ignition lock cylinder calls for less than a hour labor to install. The part itself is about $116. The O.E. part number is(###) ###-####B. If you shop around on line, you may even be able to find the part for less expensive made by a aftermarket supplier. All said and done, you can have a new ignition lock cylinder installed between $200 and $300.. maybe less.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
