Starting Key
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:41:59 AM »

Meerkata is 2003, with 35B engine,
I cannot get a key cut locally which will actually work. I think this may be the second "ignition" key set, as I found an old set onboard after purchase. Can anyone suggest how to track down the manufacturer and part number? The current key is stamped "A2".

So...does the old set work?

Have you tried giving the factory or the maker of the instrument panel a call? If no luck there a professional locksmith might be able to assist you. They have access to all kinds of blanks that most hardware stores don't carry, and ought to have something that will work. If not they might be able to re-key the switch. Worst case it you'll have to get a new switch assembly.

Good luck.
