Type of vehicle?

It is probably more cost effective to have a locksmith make up a new set of keys in all honesty. Changing all the locks in the car is a bit of a gazorch and most service lock cylinders come keyed differently and require a locksmith to key alike.

That being said, it all depends on whether the truck has separate keys for the ignition and other locks.

You'll also need the service manual to guide you through changing the locks if the links in my signature file don't provide the needed information.

Another expense

Have you priced out a locksmith's services yet?

If the truck is not real old and you know the original dealer that sold it(look at back of truck for a sticker)call the dealer give them your vin#they may be able to trace the key code and cut you a key.
