This happen to me 2 times already on my sprinter. The first it cost me $250. To get a lock smith to remove and make a new key. The second time I was not close to any lock smith and the key broke In the door. The first thing came to my mind was crazy glue. I when to a local store and brought a tube put a little on the other half of the key and held it inside the key hole for about 2-3 min and pull fast and it came out. The only way to get home was to stick the broken key in the ignition. When I got home I try it again and it work fine. I was able to take both pieces of to the lock smith and got a new key cut. You may have to try a couple of time and be patient it will work.

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 .

Call a locksmith. They have a tool for removing broken keys that grips the indents. Then they can cut the key.

Key broken in suzuki swift 1998 ignition switch


If a fine pick won't work you could try super-glue carefully applied between the broken halves, or if the key is ferrous (steel) try a neodymium magnet (which you can find in an old hard-drive).

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.
