You will need some time its a tricky job, you will need small long pics that fit into the ignition, spary a little wd40 in the slot and try to grab side of key and pull out a little you will need to keep doing this until broken peice is out, when going back in to grab again try not to push in, hope this helps.

You may get it out using a pick, or a paperclip with a very small bend on the end. If you can't get it to come out from there, you may need to replace the ignition tumbler. Let me know, and I'll give you the steps if necessary.

SOURCE: nnthe key broke off inside

If the broken piece of key is not sticking out of the ignition lock, unlikely you will be able to remove
it. Because its probably one solid broken piece and its bent so it wont slide right out.

But try getting a strong magnet, and put your spare key in until it touches the broken piece of
key in the ignition. Stick the magnet on the spare key and see if you can pull the broken piece out.

If you have an old speaker thats not working, there will be a strong magnet on the back of the
speaker. Or use a magnetic pickup tool for picking up screws, sockets and stuff under the hood of
your car. You can get a magnetic pickup tool from an auto parts store.

If you cant get the broken piece out you will need to replace the ignition lock. Not easy on
a Cadillac, probably has the telescoping/ tilt steering wheel.

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.

Key no longer works in ignition. I stopped to gas up and the key I normally use would not open the gas cap door. I re-entered the car and the key would not turn the ignition. The key unlocks the steering...


take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part

A key broke off in ignition


TRY SOME SUPERGLUE ON THE REST OF THE KEY AND CAREFULLY PLACE IT ON THE BROKEN SEGMENT, INSIDE THE CYLINDER. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THIS IDEA, THEN TRY TO USE A PIECE OF STRONG TAPE TO EXTRACT THE BROKEN PIECE. IF YOU DO USE THE SUPERGLUE METHOD, THEN OIL THE OUTSIDE OF THE CYLINDER SO THE GLUE WON'T STICK TO IT. PUT A VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF GLUE ON THE KEY AND INSERT IT SO IT ONLY TOUCHES THE KEY. HOPE THIS METHOD WORKS WELL FOR YOU. KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AS WELL. GOOD LUCK.
