Use a toothpick with a tiny drop of super glue on the end - touch the glue end to the end in the ignition, and let it dry for a few - make sure the key is in the off position, and try to pull it out using the toothpick.

if you have a metal bit for your drill that's small enough to drill a hole into the middle of the key:
drill a hole into the center of they key. stick in something into the hole (preferably a rod of metal) with superglue on it and gently try to turn the ignition after it's properly dried.

Need strong magnet & paperclip. Insert paperclip in ignition while holding strong magnet in as close as you can to broken key. If no luck you will need to change ignition lock key assembly.

My key broke off, in my ignition tumbler, cant extract it. how can i fix it?


I'd recomend you buy a new ignition lock cylinder and put in it, they usually don't cost that much. If your key is in there and you can turn it, it will be a piece of cake to change it out.

Key broke off in the key ignition switch and i cant get it out any ideas?


call a lock smith

if ignition turns turn it insert a pin or similar object into hole in botom of ignition and remove it

once removed take to lock smith have key removed and re cut
if it doesnt turn call lock smith and have them remove it and repair it lock smith will charge 100- 150 with mobile

dealer wont do mobile so tow 50 bucks then dealer charges 175 - 250 to remove and replace ignition

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~!
