Trunk key
#1306092 - 08/25/06 01:29 AM

So I was fooling around today, and didn't notice which key i had.. My primered contours truck key will open my green contours trunk, will also open my friends contours and some random persons contour (No, I didn't take anything).. Is this a normal thing or so I have some magical trunk key?

Doesn't seem very secure, if you ask me.

don't all of them? My green one has seperate door keys and trunk keys, as does my other.

Kremit I figured you were being an ass and saying 'trunk key?" because you have an SVT and I figured those had the automatic trunks.. don't they?

I think that should be 95s have a different trunk key and 96s use one key for all locks. I can't vouch for 1997 onwards.

I also have a 96 zetec and it uses one key.

And even cars with remote trunks can be opened by key.

I have the separate trunk key, and I find it pretty damn disturbing that it can open multiple trunks.

and I would kick your ass if I caught you opening my trunk without my permission

Yes the 97's do have the same key for all locks. That is disturbing to know one key opens all Tour's trucks. Your friend with the other Contour does he have the separate key? If so try his and then try the one from your other Contour. If they work then its all of them. Creeeeepy.
Maybe that's why in 96 Ford made them all one key.

well i will be home this weekend and will try my trunk key on my fathers 95 and see what happens ...


on my 99 I will soon have two different keys ... I have the ignition cyclinder fail, replaced that and plan to match the door locks to that but leave the trunk as my original key ...

That shouldn't be so bad.
I knew someone in HS he had a 88 dodge Daytona he had like 3 or 4 different keys for it.
1 to start it and for the trunk (or 1 separate for trunk) and 1 for each door.

this kinda thing is more common than you think. my dad had an oldsmobile when we lived in brooklyn, some drunk @$$ lady came out of a bar and opened the car thinking it was hers. The only reason she didn't drive away with it was the ignition cutoff, and the super old school sytle car alarm with no remote, only a keypad. MY father had to go down to the street to turn off the alarm and was like WTF!? Her actual car was parked one block over, looked exactly the same.

I never technically opened it, just just the key in and seen if it would pop, then shut it immediately. I know I still opened it in a sence, but I had in intention of looking what was in it/stealing anything, I'm not that type of person.
