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.

SOURCE: The ignition key broke off in the cylinder of my

If the key is all the way in, it should turn the lock, with a screwdriver. It might not start without a chip if it has one, but if you hold the chip close by it should start, then I would get a pick, a dental tool, something real sharp, fine, hard, and pull the key out. Get a new one made, Hope this helps.

How do I remove ignition lock cylinder that has a broke off key in it? 1994 Izuzu Trooper


Lock smiths have tools that may allow them to remove the broken key without removing lock cylinder.
I have had success removing broken keys by bending a long pin to form a small hook at the end, then using this hook to enter the lock cylinder, hook the key stub in a notch and pull the stub from the lock.
Depending how deep the key stub is, it may be possible to CAREFULLY! apply a drop of Cyanoacrylates glue i.e. "Crazy Glue" to a suitable stick / pin / rod / or the original remaining key, stick it to the broken stub, allow it to harden, and remove the broken key.

Wrong key broke off in ignition of a 2004 focus how do i removed this piece


Might have to have the barrel drilled out and replaced, I have removed broken keys with very fine crochet needles and a lot of patience. To take a barrel out without damage the key needs to be turned into the first position to depress the barrel lock pin, which you can't do with the broken key in. Good luck

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.

A key broke off in the ignition. i need to know how to remove the ignition switch cylinder


Hi Once the cowling around the ignition is removed, turn ignition switch to the first position (because the key is in the switch you should be able to rotate to the first position)
On the top side of the ignition barrel there is a spring loaded pin ( this pin is difficult to see and get at)
When you have located this pin press it in ( use the cranked end of an alen key )
While its pressed in pull out the ignition barrel with the broken key in it
when you have the barrel in your hand you will be able to get broken key out.
All the best with this problem

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
