A locksmith may be able to remove the broken key.I am sure they know many tricks.I would definitely call a couple and see if they can.If you have AAA call them and it should be covered.If they cannot,you will probably have to at least replace the ignition.Whether new or used is up to you.If you do not have the electrical remotes,you will end up having 1 key to open the door,and another key to run the car.When I had ignition problems,I replaced the whole steering column with a used one just because I was fixing it myself and it was actually easier to do than an ignition.Also I wrote tips on my profile which are basically this:When you buy a new car (new or used),take the original key somewhere and have 2 copies made.If something goes wrong with the copies possibly not working the ignition properly or whatever,then you still have the original in great shape.It doesn't really help your broken key problem,but if you end up replacing the ignition,I highly recommend it.Good luck!

Key is stuck in ignition, wont turn all the way back to remove it...if it helps, the steering wheel wont lock either


If the steering wheel wont lock either okay if its automatic make sure it goes in park. If automatic and it doesnt go in park the safety release will think you are in gear and you wont be able to take it out. Now for manual put the e brake on push the key all the while tun to the of position.I hope this help

Car is in park wheel & key wont turn


Your anti-theft steering lock is stuck.

Grab the steering wheel and pull HARD to the left, turning the key at the same time. It should pop loose.

My wife couldn't do it the other day, but it was just because she didn't have enough brute strength. The neighbor came over and pulled hard and sure enough it broke free.

Key broke inside the ignition


This will depend on how much of the key is left. You could try this:

WARNING: This could cause a worse problem

This assumes that you have the part of the key that is not stuck in the ignition. If the car is not already in "park", turn it to the park position.

Get a tube of superglue and apply a very small amount along the part of the key where it broke off. Try not to get any on the sides of the key. You only want it on the "break line". (If you get too much on, let it dry and then peel it off with a knife or other tool and start over. Don't try to wipe off exess with a cloth or paper, it will just make a mess.)

Immediately after applying the glue, hold the steering wheel hard to the right or left, and then push the key in as far as it will go and hold it as still as you can for about two minutes. Next, start rocking the steering wheel gently back and forth. If the key is stuck in the "Park" position, the steering wheel will only move a little bit.

After you determine how far back and forth you can move the steering wheel, try to hold it the middle and then gently try to extract the key. If the key will not come out easily with gentle pressure, try rocking the steering wheel while you gently pull on the key.

Good Luck

2000 Passat ignition key stuck in ignition


make sure park is fully engaged, shift in and out of park a few times, there is an interlock that keeps the key from comming out unless the park position is fully engaged, this may be sticking or be defective or out of adjustment..
