You can replace the ignition cylinder but the key has to have the right chip code for the antithieft system to read and shut off, without the code the engine won't start. you really need the old key to even reprogram a new key. At this point in time I hate to say it but the dealer is about your only option, unless you have a very up to date locksmith that has the equipment to read the transmit and receive code from the vehicles transmitter, but not very many of them go through the additional expense or training.

This comment concerns a 1999 Explorer with the same problem. A new cylinder and keys can be purchased from a place like autozone, as long at the new cylinder and matching keys are programmable. Replacing the cylinder takes about two minutes. A locksmith will have to do the programming. It takes a couple of minutes. Or you can opt for a dealership and pay a lot more.

"Pop a lock" is a nation wide locksmith that did mine for $120
