Broken Door Handle Lock (keyhole)
Does anybody know if I can just buy a replacement lock that gets set to my current key? How does that work?

I had probably used it 3 times in the 6 years I've owned my Jeep because I have keyless entry, I realize now that I should have used it more often to keep things from ceasing up... Meh, hindsights 20/20.

Since I have a viper 2way remote starter and alarm, I replaced my (expensive) stock button key with a "Rock" key on the cheap. But I'm scared if my viper remote dies when I'm out somewhere I'm going to be locked out, and i tend to leave my wallet in the wallet compartment, and my iPhone connected in the center console. Could be a shitty situation lol.

I know a lot of guys have swapped their Laredo door handles with Limited handles. Someone has to have an answer? Did the driver handle come with a new lock? Or are you supposed to reuse the stock one?

I would assume that you would reuse the same one right? Because the Key has it's own "Set Cut" out to fit into the Key Lock.

if you get a new door lock, you will need a new key that has also been programmed to the vehicle.

What about the ignition? It will be different than te lock?

Re: Broken Door Handle Lock (keyhole)
you would have two keys, but both fobs would have the same programming so you dont set off the alarm everytime.

when I got new handles....I just swtched my lock over. But I would assume you can buy new locksets easily at any dealer.

There must be another way, I dont want to have 2 keys and a fob.

Re: Broken Door Handle Lock (keyhole)
I had the locks cease up on my old truck. I used to work with an ex lock smith he told me to just spay some wd40 in the lock with the straw and work the key around. It worked and I never had another problem.
