Wow... that could be fun. Hopefully , there is enough sticking out that you can turn it back, and possibly pick it out with a couple of dental picks, or "O- ring picks". If not, the only other thing i can think of is turn it back to the spot where it is usually removed from, and then crazy glue the end that is off, and try to pull it out. Short of that, the only solution is changing the whole key and tumbler assembly.

yes you can, 1991 Dodge Dynasty Ignition Switch

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Tamper-proof Torx driver
  • Ignition key
Instructions
    • 1 Remove the plastic cover from the steering column. The cover is two pieces held together by screws that thread through the bottom piece of plastic into the top piece. Remove the screws and pull the cover off. This exposes the large square ignition switch. The key cylinder connects to the ignition switch.
    • 2 Remove the tamper-proof Torx screws that secure the ignition to the steering column using a tamper-proof Torx driver. You can get this type of Torx driver from your local auto part store.
    • 3 Pull the wiring harness out of the ignition switch.
    • 4 Place the ignition key into the cylinder and turn it onto the auxiliary position. Push the metal pin on the ignition switch in using a screwdriver and slide the ignition cylinder half way out of the ignition switch. Turn the key to the off position and slide the cylinder all the way out of the ignition switch.
    • 5 Place the key into the new cylinder, slide the cylinder into the ignition switch half way. Turn the key to the auxiliary position and slide the cylinder in the rest of the way. Remove the key from the cylinder.
    • 6 Press the wiring harness onto the ignition switch.
    • 7 Secure the switch to the steering column using the tamper-proof Torx driver.
    • 8 Place the covers back onto the steering column and secure them using the screwdriver.

A key broke off in the ignition. i need to know how to remove the ignition switch cylinder


Hi Once the cowling around the ignition is removed, turn ignition switch to the first position (because the key is in the switch you should be able to rotate to the first position)
On the top side of the ignition barrel there is a spring loaded pin ( this pin is difficult to see and get at)
When you have located this pin press it in ( use the cranked end of an alen key )
While its pressed in pull out the ignition barrel with the broken key in it
when you have the barrel in your hand you will be able to get broken key out.
All the best with this problem

Key is stuck in the ignition how do I get it out


If it`s not broke off in ignition try wiggling stearing wheel while trying to remove key if it still doesn`t want to come out try vise grips but be carefull not to brake key because if you do break key off in it then you will have to remove steering wheel to get to where pin is holding ignition switch and you will have to replace ignition switch.
