Not mine, the two keys I have work only on the ignition, not on the doors/trunk.
Are you sure you have a 97?
One of the differences I hate between my Cougars and Bird is the huge 'kiddy' key for the 97... The 96's have a round key and a square key; but the 'zig' of the key is opposite.
In other words, the trunk key won't go in the ignition. (of non-97 cars)
If your key fits the trunk keyhole, it's a 97, and it must be broken.
