Dumb ignition/door key question, did search first

Hey all! I have a silly door vs ignition key question. I first checked the archives and only found Art V's informative data regarding part nums and the fact the door keys are atually jag keys. Very interesting, but did nt really address my particular quandry. Is the door key and the ignition key the same? Art's article indicates they are not, but my keys fit both, bust just don't turn the doors. I went to the (St)Dealer and got the code for mine and when they cut it at the lock smith, it fit the doors and the ignition, but did not turn the ignition, only the doors. If they are cut differently, is it possible to make them the same by re-keying the ignition lock (since there is one of these and three door locks)? I never had an OEM key and ordered one and recieved it. Fortunatlely the lock smith cut me a test key out of a aftermarket blank (ILCO) so I have not used my expensive OEM blank yet. I really would like to have one key fits all. Any guidnace is greatly appreciated. Happy hollidays!

Jeff

Nope the door and ignition are different, but sometimes the ignition key will unlock the door. I don't know if you can rekey so that all will work off of one key, but why lock a ST anyway? If they want to get in it's really not that hard.

LOL! You are right on the money there. About the only time I would even consider locking the door (not that I had a choice until yesterday since I did not have a key that operated the door locks) would be in the office parking area since there are cameras and it is limited to just employees (supposedly). I guess just as a slight deterrant. By the was Mike, how did you know I had an ST? Are you clarevoiant? LOL! So it looks like I have to make another run to the (St)dealer to get the right key code?

Jeff, look under your name in your post, it says Rover: 95 D90 ST # 2585, so I'm not clairvoyant, just observant . So another trip to the stealer.

You think Mike is clarevoiant! I'm getting vibes that says your badge number is 2585.

My ignition key - the only one that came with the truck - opens the driver's door but not the passenger door. *shrug* I don't know, maybe I could have it re-keyed...

eh, my ignition opens both doors...but then again, a file does too. :D

if you're locking, just don't keep anything of more value than your top inside.

Anything of value is in the Tuffy. If they want my travel mug, well, more power to them!

I have never locked either of my Defenders once in 10 years....I live in the city of Boston, and have had no troubles, which is a good thing, cuz my truck's locks have never worked, and they are keyed to match the ignition.

Just could not leave well enough alone!

Thanks a bunch for all the input. Although this probably seems pretty sill, especially since I will probably NEVER lock the doors, but it was driving me nuts that I now had two different keys from the same blank, one for the doors, and one for the ignition. To aggravate the situation a bit more, the dealer could only provide me with one key code, the one that goes to the doors, not the ignition (or that is what they said anyway). So, I took it upon myself to take the ignition apart, completely, rekey the ignition (yes, myself) and re-install it. It now has the same key as the code given by the dealer and matches the door. Although the job was pretty simple, there were a few things I learned. If there is interest, I would be more than happy to write it up, but can't put any photos in cause the wife had the digi camera. Thanks again for all the help, suggestions and satirical input! Happy New Year to all!
Jeff

Jeff,


I would love to see a write up with photos. I am going to have to rekey my ignition due to it being worn and not staying in the on position. I would love to do it myself and not go to the dealer.

Matt...

Mine is the exact same way

Jason mine is the same way. Ignition will unlock the driver door but not the passenger. Wow I just thought my key was f-ed up. Learning more every day.
