Electrical Driver's Side Door Lock

  1. Quick question........Last weekend some wonderful person decided to try and break into my car. They shoved a screw driver in and hammered away. The lock cylinder is basically destroyed. Now here his the problem and question. My insurance deductible is $500.00 and the insurance wants to basically repaint the entire back half of the car. The scratch in question is about the size of a pea and will be covered by the silver trim of the lock. Also, I will have to get my finance company involved. The lock from ford is $78 plus I already have the touch-up paint. So my question is..... If I replace the lock will the fact that the keys don't match effect the operation of the car (the alarm.) I will eventually have to get the lock re-keyed but for now will it work. Oh and its a 2004 Screaming Yellow GT.
  2. No. There are no sensors in the door that talk to the key for the alarm.
  3. If you bring the old and new locks to a locksmith before installing, he should be able to transfer the pins from old to new and the original key will work in the new lock.
