is that the Alpha-Tech Ign. ?
been a while...
if it is ? its suggested to replace the entire ignition
although it can be picked to the on position for the core to
a hole has to be drilled in the correct spot first.
the entire ignition can also be removed and dissembled.
(keep in mind that this is NOT advisable)
can be done but the problem comes upon re-assembly.
the lock is not designed to be crimped back together.
I personally believe that it will not hold together and in
will probably come apart.
sounds like all ya need to do is have a new key cut back to
not a duplicate key, as that will copy the wear in the key
if you have your code ? go to your local dealer.
being a 93, your code may be stashed back in the archives.
an auto locksmith should be able to sight read your old key
and cut ya a new one that will be cut back to specs.
Might just be worn keys. After all, a 13 year old car. And probably
Take the car to a locksmith, and see if he can cut keys to code, which
would be closer to the manufacturer specs.
Do you replace the engine every 50,000 miles when it starts to run
rough? Do you get a new baby every couple days when the old one gets
poopy? Must be.
