It's possible they used your vin number and got an ignition to fit. There are only a few dozen keys per manufacturer. They just rotate them through the vehicles. I know a repo man and He has a key ring from most manufacturers. He just grabs the ring he needs and goes through them until he finds the correct one. Keys and door locks are easy. Its the electronic keys now that is the main theft deterrent

I'll bet your are right. I made the appointment to have the switch replaced a week in advance and they know my truck since it has been there before.

Thanks.

I tried to trade it but the dealer flat out lied to me then denied it. Don't matter what he's got now I'll never buy from him. Told me he could get a certain truck in the teens. Drove it fell in love with it just for his price to be 25k and he wouldn't budge. Never would have driven it had I known the price. Last time I ever do that!

Yeah I did notice before I drove it he wouldn't tell me the price. Just we can make it work. Had a hard figure if 20k, don't show me nothing more its all the money I got. Maddest I've been at a car dealer in a long time!

Curiosity finally got the better of me yesterday and I called the dealer. When they removed to old ignition switch they looked at the tumblers that are for the doors and changed the them on the new switch to match.

Now I know.

Just had my first oil change at 5,000 miles on my new truck. Made sure they were using synthetic oil at the dealer. Going in sometime the first of next week to get my tires rotated and balanced. I had just bought a new set of tires on my 2007 right before I sold it. I called Discount tires yesterday and they told me they would switch the warranty to my new truck and continue to rotate and balance the tires for free every 5,000 miles. Also put in a new truck tool box in the back bed. Good to go!
