I think a dealer can help you get another key made. If not, you have to drill and break out the lock cylinder until it can be removed. It is a messy job and some of them have a piece of titanium in them to prevent drilling, that is where the breaking part may come into play.
Several way you can remove upper and lower steering column cover and acces the ignition switch,but you will be up against 2 anti tamper screws you will have to use a pointy punch to to turn them out. Another method is drill the tumbler out and replace it,the replacement will come with a key.
lock cylinder can be replaced by removing top and bottom cosmetic parts. ignition switch is more complex and may have been put in with theft proof screws, meaning they wull have to be drilled out. do a search on www.youtube.com there are videos of folks doing this.
You'll want to replace the Ignition Cylinder & keys, not the ignition switch, which actually mounts dwn the steering column and connects to the part you will replace via a steel rod.
You may want to try and remove the broken key, get an extremely small drill bit, a matching long screw, drll the key in the thick part & pull it out. There are screw extractors but I believe they would be too large.
Just a really small drill bit, possibly even something like a paneling nail with grooves in it that's just enough larger to wedge into the key and give you the ability to remove it. If you get it straight & pull straight out, you could save some time. Hoping you have another key.
Use penetrating oil before drilling to get the key ready to glide out-if you try that.
a drill will do it but you run the risk of damage if the
drill binds or breaks off in the lock.
If i remember correctly the door lock uses the same
key if it was mine i would remove the door lock and
take it to a chevy dealer or lock smith and have a couple made.
if you have any other ? give us a shout good luck
take a drill and drill out the tumblers use small bits to start off and then use large bits to finish out the job when the tumblers fall out take a small punch to knock out pin that holds the ignition in place then put in a new one be sure not to make a big hole of where the pin fits into because if you do the new switch will just fall out when you remove the key
