    What is the problem we're having with your ignition. Could you be a little bit more clearer thank you.

    My ignition is very hot when I shut my car off. It is making my key extremely hot also. Would this have caused any damage to my key thus resulting in it snapping in half?

I can think of two possible problems you might be having. One if you said you actually broke the key, if the key is really broken it might have an anti theft device and it such as a resistor or possibly a chip and if the key is damaged this could cause more resistance causing the key heat up. And if the ignition switches is located close to the keys cylinder you might have bad contacts at the switch or bad connection where the harness connects to the switch heating up this whole area and the key. Good luck.

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.

I snapped key in bad weather have daewoo lanos


snapped key into what lock cylinder or ignition switch or do you have both ends of the key itself or not ?

if you have one end stuck in either lock / ignition cylinder you can try using a welders torch cleaning tip kit it contains many various sized brushes and files etc which will allow you to get in beside the broken end of the key and wiggle it out .,,,any parts store should have them ...

Key will not turn to start car.


HI, the ignition switch mechanism is faulty at this point. this will cause the switch mech to become jammed at times. this will also cause you to snap your master key as well. the best action will be to replace the ignition switch mechanism. The lock latch is malfunctioning.(not able to disengage properly)
