3rd key?

I recently purchased a 1990 Crown Vic and I got two keys with it. One starts the car and the other unlocks the trunk. Neither key unlocks either the passenger or driver's side door...Is there a 3rd key? The ignition key fits but will not turn and the trunk key does not fit at all. Any answers I would greatly appreciate.

should only be two keys. I wonder if the ignition was replaced at some point. That may explain why the key won't work in the doors. I could be wrong!

I think Marqman is probably correct. I had to change the ignition on a Taurus Wagon I used to own. I ended up with 1 key for the door, a second key for the tailgate, and a third key for the ignition.

Either the trunk, or the lock in the trunk was replaced, or the doors/locks in them were replaced. You should only have two keys.

Should also add that the key for the trunk is the same key you use for the doors. Obviously not in your case tho!

My door key also starts the car. The trunk key also locks the glove box.

I have a '92 Crown Vic and recently had to replace the ignition switch. In doing so they gave a new key but had to use the old key to remake the notches for the door lock. Apparently the first 4 teeth (at the tip) operates the ignition and the rest operates the doors.

re: 3rd key?

I assume you bought this car used, so who knows what has been done or changed out. I have a 98 and only one key that opens the doors, trunk, ignition. May a lock smith can make one key fit modified locks. I;m sure its pricy, but cheaper than going to the dealer.
