    I have an 86 K5 I sold my bud. I lost my keys the other night and it had the only set of keys for his K5 on it!!:doah:

    What are my options? Any of you guys have a ball park to have a locksmith cut keys for the door and ignition?

    Man my stomach hurts!

    I have never lost a set of keys before.......go figure it happens at the worst possible time:mad:

    i went down to the dealership and got one made for 5 bucks....just have to have all your information, vin number, all that crap........ but then again this was on a 93 truck not an 86. but its worth a shot if you havnt tried that already.

    a dealership can only look up key codes on a 90 or up - a locksmith is probably your only option. here in north carolina I got hit for 96.00 to unlock my 2000 tahoe. I'm sure being in vegas will be higher.

    Id imagine that you could find a set of door locks and i know you can get a new ignitionfor about $25. I know its a PITA but might be cheaper to just buy all new lock cylinders and install them yourself. Its a real PITA to pull apart the steering column but its cheaper than paying $100+ for a locksmith to cut u a key or whatever.

    The lock cylinders have their code stamped into them. If you take the cylinders to a dealer, they can cut you a key.

    Buddy of mine bought an '89 Blaze from a police auction with no keys at all. I think it cost him $135 to have the ignition and both door locks replaced by a locksmith.

    How about taking the locks off your 85 , and just paying for the ignition key form a locksmith . You can find other locks at your leisure , since you don't run doors anyway . If you still have your doors .

    Another option.....
    Get a couple of blanks for the ignition. Get a pair of vise-grips. Get a couple of files. Put the grips on the key in the ignition and turn it. Pull it out and look for marks on the blank. File the marks down. Repeat. It doesn't have to be perfect, to work. I have seen blanks open doors before on older models.

    And lots of GM ignitions when worn will accept other GM vehicle ignition keys if they are close. :)

    It should be a "A" code key (as long as it hasn't been CHanged before)... Try some freinds keys to see if anything works.

    i replace the entire tumbler in my 88 F-250 for $35 myself, picked up a new one at Napa and pulled the steering wheel, took about a hour. I never had to do that with the K5 b/c its worn and i never lock it.

    My Father-in-law is a locksmith here in OK and the way he dose it is he gets your vin# and cross refrenceses it with the code book and cuts a key. He Cut mey 3 keys for my 70c10, and 86blaz in less than 10 min. He said that He charges about 5$ a key and it costs him aobut 2 cents for a key blank. If the Door and the Ignition are different he can make them match again for about 5 dollars more. That is how most locksmiths work. Prices may Verry
