How you gonna turn key if half is broken in switch? Go to dealer with your vin number and proof of ownership and get another key.

And remove the broken piece so you can insert the new key.

Broken ignition key


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.

I dropped my ignition key and it broke in half, can I still get a copy made with the two pieces?


This happened to someone I know. They actually took it to an expert and they got it fixed with just the two pieces!...Sounds difficult but hey, it's worth the shot. Or else you'll need to replace the ignition cylinder. Hope this helps.

I have an 2001 grand prix there was an atempted theft saw the ignition key swith turn tab popted off . vehicle startes for three seconds an shuts off .


When the thief broke away the switch, he most likely broke the part that reads the code from the key. The fact that the car starts for 3 seconds and then stalls is a tell tale sign that the antitheft has failed. The injectors actually turn off because its not reading that code properly. You have 2 options. Replace the ignition with an original OEM ignition and the have the dealer reprogram it to accept the key signal. Or bypass the antitheft entirely. I'd suggest the bypass just due to the cost of dealer fees and OEM parts. But its all up to you. PS. You can install the bypass yourself and drive it that day. Here is a link explaining the system and gives you some options for DO IT YOURSELF fixes.

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.

My car starts without the key how much to fix 1997 thunderbird ford


Hi,
Before going to get it fixed. Spray some WD-40 into the ignition cylinder where you put the key in and let it soak. The lock tumblers may just be stuck and need lubrication. If thet fails then call a ford dealer and ask how much for a coded (this means the key will match your existing key and also open your doors) and an uncoded ignition cylinder ( key will turn the ignition but you will need your old keys to open the doors) The Ford keys were designed where one half of the key operated the locks and the other half operated the ignition. If you buy a new ignition key and cylinder it will only be half cut to operate just the ignition. The cost of all this differs dealer to dealer, and don't forget that there are locksmiths in you yellow pages that will do this also
Hope this helps
