fuel lid lock

Postby wiredgeorge » Mon Aug 04, 2014 11:47 am



I tried to open my fuel lid and the key wouldn't turn. I pried on the plastic and disengaged the lock from the hasp under the radio and took the lock out. There are plastic bits and springs floating so the lock is DEAD. The lock is held on by a clip. The p/n for the lock is 37220-439-007 and seems to be available BUT I don't want to buy a lock without getting the one that works with the keys that came with the bike. There is a code on the back of the lock 61KA06 and inside the filler lid is a lablabel that says Code: G159-P Code G159.

Anyone have any idea how to get a new matching fuel filler lock?

I doubt you can. But if you buy a lock that has the same key channels IE your key will slide into the lock and you can pull the cylinder from your new lock then put your key in the lock tabs will pop up..file then down to flush with the cylinder now that key works that cylinder. Or pay a locksmith big $$ to rekey the lock to work with your old key...

I think the other code is the paint code.

G159P - pearl sonoma green. If any 1500 owner needs to find their paint code, it is inside their gas cap lid area on a white sticky.

I called a Honda dealer and their parts department said there was no way they could match a new lock to an old keyset.

rbgerson: I am going to assume that I can put one of my old keys in the new lock but it won't turn. How do I remove the cylinder? It appears to be press fit. How could a locksmith get in there and rekey the new lock?

There is a clip on the inside of the door/lock cylinder slide it off then the whole thing will come out of the door. The only way to get at the cylinder is to pry/cut off the chrome ring that is around the top of the lock then the cylinder will come out..you'll need to replace the ring..might want to get one from a locksmith first to make sure you have one..once you have it out you could actually rebuild the lock re-insert the springs and pins..if you could figure out which pin goes where if only one pop out it should be easy. If you are going to use a new lock..same deal just don't pop the pins or springs. take the chrome ring off pull the cylinder put your key in and file down the slides that stick up. When you take the cylinder out it easy to see how the lock works.

If you take it to a locksmith he can rebuild the cylinder to fit your key, it just a matter of matching up the pin lenght to the key's cuts.

Mine did the same thing but it happened when it was under warranty. Ignition, trunk, gas door and fairing pocket were all replaced because the Honda dealer couldn't get one to match the original key. That was in 2002! Have you looked for a full set?

Did you tried a bit of loose nuts?

A good locksmith should be able to re-key the new lock to match your existing key. Buy the lock and bring the lock and the key you want to use to the lock shop. If you want to be sure bring them the old lock first so they can tell you if it can be done.
