Round key also fits glove box. If the locks are orginal you can take out the glove box lock and take it to a locksmith to get a key made for it<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
undee72z - For what it's worth , trying to cut a key from a glove box lock for the doors won't work 99% of the time. The glove box locks utilize only 3 and sometimes only 2 wafers (wafers are the little flat tabs that jump up and down when you insert the key and drop into the peaks and valleys of your key) , in other words the glove box is low security and is only locked by 2 or 3 wafers in the lock. You can take a glove box lock apart and cut a key with a file , you can get it to work with as little as 2 small cuts , but if you take that key to the door it'll be lacking approx. 4 more notches/wafer cuts. Otherwise everyones' keys would open about 25% of all cars , or 1 out of 4.
The only way to get a door or ignition key is to take either the car or the lock to a locksmith , and if he's good , he can cut a key from a blank for your ignition (or door) with only a file , without taking the lock out.
(ps: I used to work at a bicycle & lock shop , used to watch & help the lock guy all the time , he was the best in town and done all the bank safety deposit boxes. Also , having a tavern right next door to the shop , about every saturday morning some drunks car would be parked in front of our building , we'd go out to the car , cut a key for the door with a file , open the car , sit and patiently whittle out a key for the ignition , start the car and move it in front of the tavern's front door , then lock it back up.
Funny as hell.
