How to Get the Replacement Key for a Dodge Truck

by Zyon Silket

If you have lost the keys that came with your Dodge truck, you can contact a locksmith and they can attempt to cut a new key for you. However, they usually replace the lock cylinder in the doors and in the steering column. This can cost hundreds of dollars. There is a simpler and less expensive way to replace the key for your Dodge pickup truck.

Locate the vehicle identification number (VIN) by looking at the dash through the lower corner of the window on the driver's side of the vehicle. The VIN number is also on your vehicle title, insurance card and registration card.

Contact your local Dodge dealership and confirm that they have the ability to cut you a new key. Most dealerships offer repair services.

Take your VIN number to the dealership. They can use the VIN number to look up the key code needed to duplicate your key.
