My car was recently vandalized (failed theft attempt) and they messed up my ignition lock cylinder. I have to replace it with a new one. Over the past year, Kia and Hyundai have been targeted for thefts which has created a very severe parts shortage. I've already waited 6 weeks for the part to come in and the manufacturer has not confirmed any release date. Because I'm getting desperate I've been considering buying a used salvage part to get me rolling for the mean time. My car is a 2014 Kia Soul Base, automatic, no fog lamps, 1.6L engine, no push button start, has a flip key with remote to unlock/lock doors.
My question is: do I have to use the exact part # as the one that is recommended by the dealership for my vin? Or can I use an ignition lock cylinder that is from a different year but same model maybe different trim? As of now the options I am seeing for my type of car with keyed ignition are 81905-B2000 , 81905-B2110, 81905-B2111 . The one the dealership is waiting on is 81905-B2110. I'm hoping the other options could also work.
Please someone help to expand my search. Feels like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.
