    It broke really good...nothing was getting the key out. I know you're right, the ignition switch has to be removed/replaced. Reminding me to get the manual though...thank you! If, there's an ignition cylinder it probably needs to be replaced too. so, I do need the manual first.

Well you can try using a very small paper clip or the like and try to pry it out or you'll have to remove the ignition switch. a haynes auto repair manual at any auto parts store for 17$ will explain in detail.

I broke my key off in the ignition,what i need to do to get it out


A lot depends on if the ignition switch will rotate or not. If it can rotate, the ignition lock cylinder can be removed fairly easilly and either the lock cylinder can be replaced, or you can take the existing lock cylinder to a locksmith for repair. If you replace the lock cylinder, then you will also probably get new keys for the new cylinder. These will not work your door locks however, so you will have to use two keys.

If the lock cylinder will not rotate, some extensive steering column disassembly will be required to get the lock cylinder out and several other parts may need to be replaced in the process.

Go to turn the key in ignition, it wouldn't turn at all. finalt


try turning the steering wheel side to side whilst turning the key. If that dies not help, you may need to replace the cylinder, but on the S-Series, you are probably just in need of a key. if your key is really worn all around, get another one made at the dealership (bring your title) and they can cut you a new one from the VIN of the car, rather than from a worn out key.

I would have the cylinder replaced with one that has a key with it instead of having them match the cylinder to a key. I think it would create less places for error.

You should still be under warranty, unless you have more than 36,000 miles. Take it in and tell them the ignition cylinder is binding. There is a technical service bulletin for this issue that says they need to remove the cylinder, clean it, and lubricate it with a special lubricant. If this still doesn't fix it they will need to replace the ignition cylinder and probably the ignition cylinder housing too. The bulletin number is 06-02-35-016c, this should help who ever gets to fix this.
