Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta
Well, without putting out a lot of details (not really sure how the vehicle is built):
Take the plastic covers off the steering column , in the back of where the key cylinder is located will be the actual ignition switch (separate from the cylinder) you can unbolt it from inside the column and turn the actuator in the switch (like you would with the key in the cylinder)(Acc/Off/On/Start...) with a screwdriver, a key or whatever...
I'm not sure if your car model has a "transponder key" that is a key with a built in chip for security purposes... Being a 1995 i don't think it does but i might be wrong. In this case there is a reader that wraps around the outer end of the cylinder which reads the transponder in the key.
When I did this with my 2000 Ford, (to which i had the transponder key), i took out the old cylinder (was bound up, had to drill and destroy it and most of the mechanism in the column), and when starting the car with a screwdriver in the ignition switch, all I had to do was hold the transponder key close to the side of the steering column where the cylinder was and that did the trick...
