Door Lock Cylinders

I recently bought the Mopar half door kit. I had the doors painted and have everything assembeled except getting the door lock cylinders (Part # 68001713AA) coded and installed. This was covered in the half door instructions and my Google searches have not come up with any instructions. I contacted the dealer and they said it would be $400 to install and code the two door lock cylinders. Does anyone have access to the instructions for this part? The dealer said he could not provide them to me even though I bought the half door kit from them.

Thanks for any assistance the group is able to provide!

You can buy generic door lock actuators on Amazon for $5 a piece. I installed them on my WJ when the factory one went out. They are easy to install.

You would need to wire them inside the door, but that wouldn't be hard.

Ask me why you should not buy anything from 4 Wheel Online

Where did you get the doors from? It should be part of the kit.

and any locksmith can key the cylinders to your key. I think paid 20 bucks.

All that cost must be labor to disassemble and reassemble the doors because the lock cylinder is the first part installed inside the shell during assembly.

With the cylinders in hand, my dealer matched them to my key for $20 (for both). Then I assembled the (painted) half-doors.

The procedure for having the cylinders "coded" to match your key isn't in the instructions but installing the cylinder is; it's the very first step.

So if you have the cylinders in hand, just bring them (and your registration, they'll need the VIN) to a dealer or locksmith. Should take about 5 minutes for each cylinder. They just install pins of varying length to match the sequence specific to your key.

If you have already assembled the doors including the cylinders, you'll have to disassemble them to get the cylinders out.....

mopar locks

Blast from the past. So I too have just recently purchased a new front set of half doors. I ran into the same problem myself. I have a local lock smith I am going to take them to and have done. Getting the run around from the dealership and have a feeling that it will be pricey.

Hey Rehtnug,

I am sorry to hear about your recent experience with your FCA dealership. Did you get a formal diagnosis and estimate from the dealership?
