I use crazy glue and some patient and work fine. Put a little on the other side of the broken key, push back into ignition and hold for a couple of minutes until dry, when removing pull fast, if fail try again. I have a Sprinter and the keys are prone to breaking already happen twice and both time I got it out with crazy glue.

Key won't turn


hi there,

Your car has a steering lock that clicks into place when you take the car key out of the ignition. This prevents thieves from being able to steer your car if they hotwire it. Sometimes the wheel is turned to just the right place to keep your key from being able to disengage that steering wheel lock. All you have to do is turn the wheel a little bit in either direction while you turn they key. and your done!

You are going to have to use something small like a dental pick that is bent at the end to be able to pull the remaining part of the key out. Here is a video to watch on how to remove the broken key: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EChbMvVj1VA

How to remove broken key from a master lock


A sharp rap on a firm surface should make part of the key visible that you can grab it with 2 stout sharp imlements like dental picks or nut picks or even 2 small screw drivers and use them like pincers and extract key.

Just make sure to hold the lock in a manner that the momentum at impact will be in the direction the key needs to go to be removed. This will not work reliably if only a portion of the keyed section like the first 2 keycuts is what is stuck, A dental pick might be the only chance at extraction.

Broke a key off in my ignition and can't remove lodged piece. Have replacement but can't turn old ignition to 'acc' to unlock. Are there any other methods for removing/replacing old ignition?


Locksmiths use a tool that resembles a thin piece of a coping saw blade. That tool is slid along side the key stub, turned so that the teeth grip the stub, and pulled outward.

They also use a thing that is like a dental pick, only with a smaller hook.

I've heard of supergluing a toothpick (or the other half of the key) to the stub of the key, but you would have to be very, very careful not to get any glue on anything but the end of the broken piece of the key. You also have to be able to hold it long enough for the glue to set.

I've also read that lubricating the key stub and lock with a lock lubricant helps with extraction, but that would clash with the superglue method.

As far as removing the cylinder, it has to be in the 'ACC' position. The only alternative to this is to remove the entire switch assembly and replace it with a new/used unit. This would mean having to add another key to your keyring(s). I believe that removing the steering wheel is necessary (or very helpful) when replacing the switch on that car.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

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.

Get a really strong magnet, and some dental type tools, try and jiggle it out. You may have to get a locksmith.

1995 nissan 200 sx will not start


check for a live feed to the low tension wire at the starter when a second person operates the ignition key. if no feed check fuses relays and then back of the ignition assembly. has it got an after market alarm fitted that may have gone faulty and has shut down the starting circuit. if so you need to find the wiring that it has been linked into and rejoin the original wiring back together.
