You may be able to use a small metal pick and get the remaining part of the out, i have been able to this in the past.
If not you can buy a new lock at any parts store and replace it. These are not very expensive at autozone, but you will have to pull the steering wheel for access

Yes, you need to remove the steering wheel and the wheel lock collar then remove the signal switch plate.....on the left side of the steering shaft there is a single screw remove it and the ignition switch will slide out(you may need to rotate the switch to the run position.)then you should be able to push the broken part of the key out..........you may need to drill a small hole in the bottom of the cylinder and use a small screw driver to push the broken key out
hope this helps.....Good Luck!

My lock cylinder for my key broke off the end. I Took it out How do I fix it end is stuck in there where it cracked off


If the vehicle has an immobiliser, get a dealer to do it. The lock cylinder has a chip in it that has to be paired with a chip in your key.

If it doesn't get one from a breaker.

Can you fix a ignition that has locked in a 2005 Honda Civic 2 door coupe for cheaper than 500 hundred dollars?


Hello Renee,

The ignition switch for the civic is expensive. Auto Zone shows a new replacement ignition switch for a 2005 Honda Civic DX 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl listed at 455.99. This part also fits 21 other 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl Civic Models.

If you can find a low mileage Civic at the wreaking yard with the same switch as your model, that would save you money, but of course if one key is currently used for the door and ignition switch... you would have two keys after swapping out the switch. The old one for the door lock and the new (used) one for the ignition.

Open door in order to fix latch


Of course you can call a guy to come and unlock it for you in which case would save you time and headaches...Or buy a slimjim to open it yourself.That can be a headache as well if you don't know how to use it and also pending where the latch is broken...It really depends where the latch is actually broken...This can be done from carefully removing front part of door interior ..If it has power windows it will be easier of course..,If it is a crank window you will need a window crank remover if it has an inside clip...Some have a screw behind a plastic cover at the crank but some won't have a screw...If it is broken at the lever normally you can reach carefully behind panel,grab the rod and pull it to you to open door....If you knew where it was broke....Trust me to save time and get a unlock door kit from parts store with directions or else get someone to come unlock it for 20 or 50 dollars.....Save a nightmare from happening...A slimjim is cheaper however you don't know where the actual problem is....Call a door locksmith.

Power mirror switch knob broke off on 2003 trailblazer


I was told I needed a new module on drivers side - I took it out and took it apart and cleaned the contacts in it with a spray electrical component cleaner and put it back together and it works just as it did before - saved 200 dollars not replacing something that wasn't broken!
