For those of you with worn out keys.... a good locksmith can look up the numbers on the lock and have new/perfect keys made (Done my looking up the codes and setting the machine manually). Mine were slipping out of the key slot. It cost me $15.00 to get the original made, and $1.50 for each copy. I wish I did it 2 yrs ago, insead of tolerating it.

It was obvious that the keys were bad.... they had no teeth, and were very smooth.

If your keys have teeth, and they still slip out.... you'll probably have to get your mechanic to replace the lock cylinders for you. That's likely to be much more expensive.
