The PATS anti theft system won't let you just swap out the ign lock cylinder and keys unless you change the computer from the donor car too.

Depending on the car, you may be able to just buy a remote key fob and program it yourself. The 2003 Focus I bought had power locks but no keyless transmitter, I bought one off ebay for $11 and programmed it myself, now I unlock my doors with the push of a button.
