    Finally I replaced my 97 Caravan with, what else than other 97 Caravan
    Only this one even its listed as caravan in original title is in fact Grand Caravan
    It has longer body than my old Caravan.
    Anyway
    Car came with one key that works for ignition and driver door only. Dose not work on any other doors.
    I am assuming owner has lost keys at some point in past and to save money replaced only Ignition and driver door locks.
    Does anybody know would I be able to obtain original key from dodge?

    Thanks

    A dealer can cut the key if you provide the VIN and proof of ownership.

    Does the vehicle have an anti-theft security system? If YES then a new key would have to be programmed by a dealership service department;. You can tell if the vehicle has an anti-theft key immobilizer by the size of the key head. See attached image.

    Thank you Alan, but Its 97 Dodge
    I think at that time they may have 10 different keys for all cars.
