Make sure it is turned to the off position.Then if you can see it try using tweezers or something similar. If its too far in to use tweezers it's probably gonna need a locksmith, but maybe... If you put some superglue on the other piece and line it up perfectly it may be strong enough to pull it out but don't use too much glue or it may get inside the ignition. Just a very light coating on the end and hold it there for for a while. Hope u get it out! And let me know if you use the superglue and it works cause I'm very curious to know if it would lol.

Where is the steering wheel lock located?


If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

Nnthe key broke off inside the ignition and am trying to figure out how to remove the broken piece from inside the ignition since i have another key


If the broken piece of key is not sticking out of the ignition lock, unlikely you will be able to remove
it. Because its probably one solid broken piece and its bent so it wont slide right out.

But try getting a strong magnet, and put your spare key in until it touches the broken piece of
key in the ignition. Stick the magnet on the spare key and see if you can pull the broken piece out.

If you have an old speaker thats not working, there will be a strong magnet on the back of the
speaker. Or use a magnetic pickup tool for picking up screws, sockets and stuff under the hood of
your car. You can get a magnetic pickup tool from an auto parts store.

If you cant get the broken piece out you will need to replace the ignition lock. Not easy on
a Cadillac, probably has the telescoping/ tilt steering wheel.

Broken key inside ignition


Your two choices are #1 remove and replace the ignition cylinder or #2 remove the cylinder, disassemble it and remove the broken key piece and reinstall cylinder. If you cannot handle the job, have a mechanic do it since it's quite a complex task getting that cylinder out and an even harder task removing the broken key piece.

How to remove ignition lock cylinder, broken key inside


If the key is broken off inside the cylinder and u still have the other half of the key u should be able to insert the remainder of the key to get the ignition to turn forward. You'll have to remove the covers surrounding the upper half of the steering column and you will see a small pin on the cylinder to push to remove the inner part with the broken key. the key has to be in the on position to remove the cylinder and just reverse the removal to put it back together.

take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part
