Ignition and door key question?

I lost my keys the other day and was wondering, I have a different key for y ignition then to my doors, now my question is, does this mean I have a different ignition? Or did the 93s have 2 keys one for doors and one for ignition?

They come from the factory with two keys.
One square headed key for the ignition and door locks and one round or oval headed key for the trunk.
If you have two square headed keys then most likely someone replaced the ignition switch sometime in the past.

Well called ford and they can only make keys for cars up to 10 years old. So now what do I do? I don't want to replace ignition as this is the original ignition.

Just go anywhere else that makes keys.
Maybe a local hardware store or locksmith.

Hmm what's the cheapest route on this? I read somewhere there is a plastic key or somethin I can use to put in my ignition turn it and take it to the locksmith and they can make me a key? Any idea what that is?

Never heard of that before.
I don't think there is a "cheapest route" for having one of these keys made.
It only cost me $2-$3 to have mine made at the local hardware store.

I believe he means he doesn't have the key any more and needs one hand cut for his car.

If you have the key code it is still inexpensive.
(Everyone writes these down and keeps them right?)

But if you do not, then you may end up having to change the door and ignition locks.
Finding a locksmith who can make a key to fit a lock without having an original key to work from has been impossible in my area.

I don't even know what a key code is where to find it or anything so, lol nope I didn't. Haha but anyways I'm about to replace the ignition cylinder so I don't have to pay $30 for a book could someone post some instructions on how I replace it.

You can get the Chiltons here - Parts Geek - for under $15.

Or the Haynes here - RockAuto - for under $15

Then you will have one for future reference.

Did you ever notice that things you lose and then find are always in the last place you look?

WOW! You caught on to that one fast.

You would be surprised at how many people just say, "Yeah, that is strange" and never "get it".

If you end up here again, door and ignition cylinders are available at most large retailers, they come with keys, and they're easy to install

Yea I had bought an ignition cylinder that comes with keys, But to get it out without your key, u have to drill it carefully, if u mess up u could have to replace the steering column. So in most cases of losing keys it's not a quick, easy fix to replace the ignition cylinder, because u risk messing something else up. Now it is a quick fix if ur not worried about messing anything up, but on my car I was a bit worried. Lol

I had the same problem on my 1995 mustang I lost the key but luckily I had keyless entry installed I ordered a remote and programed it and then found my key tht night in my house haha! Even though you can still get into your car I just wanted to tell you there is ways a way!!! Your best bet is to look good around your surroundings and then call a locksmith that specializes in only car keys! He will definatelyknow what to do!

Yea "his" "solution" costs $150 because he would have to drive out here and remake a key to that cylinder. And $150 was the cheapest I found. Lol
