Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I am hoping for some great recommendations from folks here regarding this situation, please ??

Now that I have my '97 Aero in-hand the biggest concern I have is that it came with just a single key which has its non-metallic top of ready to break right off.
(I suspect many 9K owners know, having a lost (or locked inside) key is NOT a trivial matter.)

This needs to be carefully considered and dealt with BEFORE any calamity, IMO.

Adding to this scenario is the sometimey driver's door lock switch - OR, maybe the (post '94 ?) lock controller module which others have posted about here as being 'wimpy'...

And finally there are the key & locking choices at hand:
1 - Buy a couple of newly made keys (Spendy !!);
VS.
2 - Changing ALL the locks with either the set from my '94, or a spare set with several keys.

Considering all of the above, it will obviously be easiest/quickest to spend the $60+ for 2 new keys;
But that will not assuredly make the locking switch or controller work any better.

So I am asking for opinions on the above here, please ??

Lastly, I am hoping that someone will tell me the way to identify & find the lock controller module so that if I need to swap that out I will change the correct part - and also, is it that part or the alarm controller that works with the key fob remote to unlock the doors, please ??

Thanks for any helpful replies !!!
