A lot of times you can fish the old key out with a couple of sharp dental picks.Since keys are brass the hard steel picks bite pretty good. Most auto parts stores have them.I have got a lot out this way.

2007 volvo v50 key stuck in ignition vehicle totally shut down


It is best to call a locksmith, unless you know how to take apart the ignition tumbler and put the assemly locks in the correct order. It sounds like the key tumbler hold in broke and all the tumblers are loose and causing the key to be stuck. If you want to hurry the job for the locksmith and save money, buy the key tumbler assembly for your vehicle for the locksmith to install. Otherwise he will have to make the trip to buy the assembly, which in turn costs you more money. Mechanic shops can replace key tumblers too but when it is stuck in the column, it takes a lot of effort to remove if they are unskilled.

My key broke off in ignition. What do I need to do in order to change ignition?


have a locksmith remove the barrel of the lock and fit a new barrel that is tumbler coded to the existing barrel. That way your spare key will still be encoded for the immobiliser.

Can't remove key from ignition. Battery seems to be dead but sparks when I put the charger on. Still can't remove key.


Tumblers broke in the ignition and have caused the ignition to "lock up". You need to replace the ignition assembly.

Was replacing the ignition switch and accidently broke off a silver piece off of where the switch goes connected. Can you some one tell me if this can be replaced and if I have to replace the entire key...


Replacing An Ignition Switch..

If The Ignition Switch Is Defective, It Must Be Replaced Regardless. Before Removing A Dashboard-mounted Switch, The Tumbler (Lock Mechanism) Must Be Removed From The Switch.Normally A Small Piece Of Wire Is Inserted Into A Hole IN The Front Of The Switch And The Key Is Turned.This Will Release The Tumbler From The Switch So The Tumbler Can Be Pulled Free. Then Unplug The Wires And Remove The Old Switch.

A Steering Column-mounted Ignition Switch Is Separated From The Tumbler. It Is Normally About Halfway Down And On Top Of The Steering Column. To Remove This Type Of Switch, Remove The Fasteners Holding The Steering Column To The Dash. This Will Let The Column Drop Down So You Can Replace The Ignition Switch.

The ignition switch is damaged and I need to replace it. Someone attempted to drill it out and the drill broke off in the lock, so the key can no longer be inserted.


Do not drill out there is a pin hole in the side of the switch visible after removing the covers around the swithch you may need to remove the steering wheel I never had to turn the ignition swith to on position and then put a pin or small drill bit in the pin hole push in on it and then simultaneously pull out on the chrome key tumbler wiggle it abit while pushing in on the bit to remove center tumbler assembly/contacts.

2002 grand prix...key broke in ignition.


You may get it out using a pick, or a paperclip with a very small bend on the end. If you can't get it to come out from there, you may need to replace the ignition tumbler. Let me know, and I'll give you the steps if necessary.

Ingnition tumbler broke cant start


If the key won't start it; it might not be the key ignition, but rather; the ignition that has a stem that goes from the key ignition down on the steering colunm. However, you can get key ignitions for them, or buy the whole steering colum then take the key ignition out of it. But, I would suggest more information is needed before I can conclude that it is just the key ignition. Hope this help~!
