Depending on the key itself, you may be able to remove the broken piece by using a small magnet (strong). Test the remaining part of the key to see if this is possible, (if it's susceptible to the magnet). If you have no luck with the magnet, your best bet is to call a locksmith as they have something to remove the broken key within seconds.
If you try to get the your broken piece out of the key out yourself, there's quite a large chance of doing further damage and needing to replace the cylinder lock which can become very costly.

The key wont insert all the way into the ignition


Try all the keys you have. If is is not the key, then the lock is broke inside or needs some lube spray.

How many times must you post the same question? Have you insured you are using the correct key? If so, spray WD-40 or similar into lock, put key in and out several times, wiggle, respray and keep trying. Try turning the steering wheel slightly back and forth as you do this. Good luck, you may have to disassemble if a part inside broke.

Nnthe key broke off inside the ignition and am trying to figure out how to remove the broken piece from inside the ignition since i have another key


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.

Key ignition switch needs replaced lock cylinder how do i change key broke off inside damaged needs replaced wires broke off behind key switch


disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse out to diable the air bag. Remove the steering coulmb trim covers and expose the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder can be turned and is functional then push in the bottom tab and turn the lock cylinder then pull the whole cylinder out. If the keys broke inside and the lock cylinder is not functional the bottom tab will need to be drilled out.

Key broke off inside ignition need to replace


Try using a pair of thin, long-nosed hemostats if you can see the key remnant.
If you can't see the remnant, don't take the wheel off. Call a mobile locksmith; he can usually help for around 30 bucks.

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.

Key wont turn


no it sounds like the ignition clinder is broken or worn down inside either that or maybe the key itself. get a new key made (local hardware store) and try that one if that doesnt work im afraid that you may need a new key and tumbler
