If the new one is not programmed you you may be able to get it started if you hold the old key close to the ignition while starting it with the new key. You will have to get the new key programmed.

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.

Bmw 740 il key broke in half at remote part car


Yes it is, but just having the key near the ignition is enough to start the car. If you can turn the ignition with the broken key, hold the broken part in your hand and see if it will start. Hopefully the chip isn't damaged. I know that when GM keys are replaced, they glue the old key under the dash to make it work. Hope this helps.

Key no longer works in ignition. I stopped to gas up and the key I normally use would not open the gas cap door. I re-entered the car and the key would not turn the ignition. The key unlocks the steering...


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
