disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse out to diable the air bag. Remove the steering coulmb trim covers and expose the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder can be turned and is functional then push in the bottom tab and turn the lock cylinder then pull the whole cylinder out. If the keys broke inside and the lock cylinder is not functional the bottom tab will need to be drilled out.
Absolutely! The only way to ensure your ignition switch will work properly again (even if you are able to get the key back to off and the accessories turn off) is to replace the switch. I hope you found this solution to solve your problem and wish you all the best. Take care!
