2) what did the dealership have a problem fixing
1) I still have the original keys and they still work and open my gas cap - they had my key code on file by the vin. the extra key was just a regular black key (no keyless, no chip inside) so they could test the lock mechanism before they returned my cap to me.
2) they had issues trying to fit the little sleeves that go into the cylinder. these little sleeves are different sizes/lengths and correspond to the cut of your key. for some reason mopar/chrysler changed to a different model # gas cap recently and my dealer had fitment issues with these little metal fittings.
also on another side note, a local locksmith said their little metal fittings would not work with this new locking cap style. I sat there and watched them having issues with it. it was a similar issue they had trying to replace a lock cylinder on a newer dodge avenger recently.
in the end, my dealer ended up not charging me the labor to key the lock correctly because it took them a few days... maybe my dealer is just retarded, but i saw first hand the sleeves/tumblers (whatever you call them) just did not fit correctly without modifying/shaving them to fit into the cylinder.
