Door/glovebox/center console key

I just bought a 99 wrangler 4.0L, it only came with one key (ignition). This key doesn't fit in any of the door locks or the glove box or center console lock.

Did this year model come with seperate keys for ignition and locks? Is there a way to get a replacement door lock key without having to change out the lock cylinders?

My '02 uses 1 key to fit all. Sounds like your ignition switch may have be changed out.

The door lock cylinders can be re-keyed to match your current key. Search you tube videos.

BUT, most do not lock there doors, this is the easiest way to get your soft top and/or soft windows cut and slashed.

If I have my full doors on, I not only don't lock them, I roll the windows down.

All the more reason why we need the glove box and center console to lock, no? I never lock my door with my soft top on. It's sort of like locking your tent. However, I do lock the glove box and/or the center console (depending on what's being stored in there).

I haven't tried, but the stock console doesn't seem to hard to get into if locked.

The glove box and center console are not hard to get into. The locks are there for the honest people. As far as locking the doors with the soft top it does not matter either way, I seriously doubt a thief will check to see if the door is locked. But I personally leave mine unlocked also, because I can only hope they don't slash my top or windows and take whatever useless junk they want.
