Unhappy Broken lock cylinder

A piece of the lock cylinder in my '92 Pathfinder driver-side door is broken and now the key just goes round-and-round. Please could someone tell me:

--How much would it cost for this to be replaced?
--Do I need to replace all the other locks too if I decide to carry only one key after the problem is fixed?
--Would it be cheaper to have keyless remote entry installed than to have this lock repaired? (I have a Viper alarm (with fobs) and power locks in my car)

Many thanks!

Have you removed the cyl. to verify that it is the problem? It may just be a linkage off inside the door. If you need a lock cyl replacement, a good locksmith can arrange it so one key fits all.
You might also check a salvage yard if you need a cyl, would be a lot cheaper. I'd say nix on the remote keyless entry.
