Default 96 ford ranger key question

I'm a newbie here and trying to help my dad out. He lost his keys the other day and we've looked everywhere he went that day in his other truck. Whats his cheapest solution?

Was told that taking the switch out could set off air bags???? Autozone has replacement for doors and ignition for $50 but then the air bag thing has us a little leary of going this route.

as long as you disconnect your battery,wait 10 mins, and dont mess with yellow wires/hook direct current to them you have nothing to worry about
