You have to replace the assembly if you can't pull the end of the key out. That is done by removing the steering column shroud and chisseling or drilling off the captive bolts which clasp the lock assembly to the column. Then refit the new assembly and tighten and snap off the new captive bolt heads.

Does the car lock open with the switch on the door?  If it does not, it is not the key.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER IN A 1998 ACURA RL


I could be wrong but I am pretty sure there are a few (3, I think) screws on the bottom side of the steering column. You remove those screws and take the plastic off from around the steering column, top and bottom. There are two 8 mm bolts on the top of the column holding down the ignition switch. The cylinder is on the bottom side of the column and should now come off.

Need to reset the key fob on acura 3.5 rl 98 and dont know how


It is a PAIN. You have to be very precise and have good timing. I had to repeat the whole thing about 4 times before it worked. As a side note, a great place to read EVERYTHING about your car is at rl.acurazine.com it is terrific.


• This system accepts up to two transmitters.
• Entering the programming mode cancels all learned
transmitter codes, so none of the previously
programmed transmitters will work. You must
reprogram all the transmitters once you're in the
programming mode.

1. Open the driver's door.

2. Push up the driver's door master power door lock to
the unlock position. Hold it there for the rest of this
procedure.

3. Insert the key in the ignition switch, then remove it.
Repeat this four more times within 10 seconds.
(Steps 3 and 4 must be completed within 10
seconds, or the system will exit the programming
mode.)

4. Insert the key in the ignition switch. Make sure the
power door locks cycle to indicate that the system
has entered programming mode.

5. Press the "LOCK" or "UNLOCK" button on the
transmitter. Make sure the power door locks (all
except the driver's door) cycle to indicate that the
transmitter has been accepted.

6. To program a second transmitter, press its "LOCK"
or "UNLOCK" button within 10 seconds.

7. Release the master power door lock switch to exit
the programming mode.
