So I haven't locked the doors on my BRAT in months because it wasn't capable of driving and didn't have any valuables inside. That has recently changed so I started locking it, unfortunately the door locks have always been really troublesome and now they don't unlock.


Does anybody know of a universal lock cylinder replacement or a surefire way to rebuild what I have?


I think I also need to replace my ignition switch due to the fact that the dash light stay on sometimes or engine will stay running after I turn the key to the off position. I did do an EJ swap but I don't think I could have caused those types of issues during the wiring job. There is a kit from Australia for all the locks and an ignition switch but its 200$ which is way more than I was hoping to spend on this repair. Suggestions?
