door keys

i have a problem with the door locks... the two doors in the front do not lock and the door in the back there is a key broken inside it.
i searched for door cylinders but didn't find any.. and the told me it should have the same numbers like mine..(does that mean if i use cylinders with other numbers than the ones on my jeep i will have to use 2 different keys one for doors and one to run the car?)
second question is can i make all the doors work on the center lock system.. and if yes do i need to buy any door parts except the center lock? because it is really hard to find any parts for my jeep here.

You would need to search lock cylinder. Rockauto.com has them. I have a soft top so I don't worry about locking it. I'd rather have someone open the door than cut the top to get in.

If I am reading your post right ..........Yes you will have two different keys. One for the door and tailgate locks and one for the ignition. If you can somehow remove the broken section of key from the tailgate (assuming it is the correct key) a good locksmith should be able to make a new key from that section.

If the front door locks are not working take the door panel off and adjust the linkage and oil it. They are bad about getting gummy and binding up. As far as the broken key goes I would say a locksmith can get that out.

I was able to buy a trio of keyed-alike lock cylinders for my doors and tailgate from Quadratec (Morris 4x4 also sells them) so I have one key for the ignition and a different key for the doors. If you look online, note that the lock cylinders for full doors are sometimes different than half doors Your best bet may be to go to a locksmith, he will be able to remove the broken key from the cylinder and re-key them all the same. It may save you some money if you remove all the cylinders from the doors first, I would check with the locksmith to see if they need to be removed.

When you say "do not lock" do they lock from the inside or not at all ?

If they won't lock from the inside as well as the outside it is not the door lock causing the problem. I would take the door panel off and look at the linkage or a problem in the latch. I see this often when people try and use a slim Jim to unlock the doors. The broken key in the rear is not too hard to extract. If it is power door locks also can be the solenoid causing that problem.

i know that there is another problem in the door locking system latch or something else but i am asking for the door lock cylinder because when i put the key in it and try to turn it it wont turn and i think the linkage in the latch wont effect the way that the cylinder would turn.

While that may be true, the lock may not be "turning" because the lock mechanism is jammed up at the latch. YOu are going to have to take off the inner door panel to take off the rods then try the key in the lock.
