This new truck I got has no keys. I''m trying to get it to fire up and I'm not looking forward to changing the steering colum if I don't have to. If these crackheads can theif a truck in under a minute, come on over and trash this lock so I can fire it up and steer. Any info on how to accomplish this task? pm if you want to.

What kind of truck is it? I've had to drill out the tumblers and lock pin on a '89 F250 once, wasn't the worst job I've ever done but helps if you have a 1/2" drill for the tumblers. Come to think of it I believe I tried to drill out the lock pin but the column was aluminum and of course the pin is steel, so gave up on that attempt and just drilled out the tumblers.

Bust the top of the steering colum plastic and push the rod forward./
I had a 88 Bronco and that was how I started it.
Cant remember how i turned it off however.
Im not a ex crackhead Im a ex drunk and thats how we did it....................

bottom of the lock cyl there will be a pin to drill out. to that and the cyl will pull right out. get another cyl from w/e and twist it to the on or acc. position and then push the pin in and it will slide right back in

i would just remove the steering wheel and pull the ignition out then use a screwdriver or if it is a dodge i would just bu a new steerign column from me...

you can drill the tumblers out, above and below the key slot on the cylinder. once you drill through, pull the drill out and then drill it again as the tumblers will fall down and expose more material in the hole. repeat that and you should be able to jam a screwdriver in it and crank it

Vise grips and a hammer under a minute.
PM me if you want to know how I dont wanna post this in a public forum

Think the Ford I did wouldn't pull out unless it was already in "on" position, that's why I drilled out the tumblers.

Hammer and chissel. About 3 min and split the colum housing in half. Still works to move it around, but that colum is scrap.

just gather up all the ford keys you have, sometimes youl get lucky and a key for another truck will work... my ranger and my F250 start with the same key....

Haul the truck to a locksmith and have them make a key to fit the ignition. I lost my keys a few years ago so I hauled the truck to the locksmith. A couple hrs and $50 later I had my truck back with 4 sets of keys. Never lost those ones again.

When I worked at a ICBC repair facility and they had no keys, we usually used a flat head and a hammer. Hammer the flat head in to the keyslot and turn, worked probably 90% of the time.

um take vin to dealership they will cut a key for 30ish bucks

BCAA will cover up to 100 bucks I think, with the gold membership for a guy to come out and re key.

I don't know how they check to see if the vehicle's insured, maybe they just take your word for it.
