I bought a blank off of ebay for about $5 years ago and had a local shop match it to the ghetto one I got with the car.

Works perfect.

The only problem now is that the lock cylinders might also be worn, which means other worn keys might be able to open those locks.

my thoughts exactly. I have done this with other makes. my 05 dodge ram key will unlock my 91 dakota door but not the ignition.

if it wasn't for the VIN matching to the locks I would say replace them all. $$$

I'm sure you could get the same keyed locks redone. That is, they would use the same original key code and all.

Might be a better idea to go to a locksmith, but IIRC Honda also sells the kit to re-pin the lock. Not so sure if doing that for the first time sounds fun to me though...

Already pulled the cylinder out of the lock assembly. Don't like that. Too easy for it to fall apart and not work right afterward.

Maybe with some guidance though...

I've heard similar, but I didn't think it was that far of a range in years.

And I had issues with very worn keys not opening my doors very easy. Getting it cut by VIN and then keeping an extra pristine condition one tucked away in a lock box or something may be a good idea. Just in case.

The only "problem" I have had is my key WORKS like new!! Glad I had it cut by VIN# for $1.53

I did buy some graphite and that was $2.50.

I don't think you understand what I just said.

I'm sure the new key will work just fine. The problem could be that since the pins in the cylinder on the car are worn, other keys could open it. It is likley that since your other key was that worn, your pins in the cylinder lock are also worn.

And I don't think you understand what I said. My worn key wasn't working. I got a new one, and the new one worked.

BTW: I have a 94 civic si, and I've tried key switching on both. Doesn't work.

Then if your key was so worn that it wasn't working, it's great you have it working again. I didn't see you mention that before though, so I wouldn't have known.

Just letting people know that the pins in the cylinders wear as well, so that might be something they want to keep in mind as well. Granted Civics are usually easy enough to break into that another key isn't needed.
