Hi,

The safest thing to do is to use a key extractor. These generally require an expert lock smith to use properly. Trying to use home made methods such as blades and super glue can cause more damage to the cylinder itself. It is recommended to go to a professional locksmith to avoid both cost and damage to your vehicle.

How do I remove ignition lock cylinder that has a broke off key in it? 1994 Izuzu Trooper


Lock smiths have tools that may allow them to remove the broken key without removing lock cylinder.
I have had success removing broken keys by bending a long pin to form a small hook at the end, then using this hook to enter the lock cylinder, hook the key stub in a notch and pull the stub from the lock.
Depending how deep the key stub is, it may be possible to CAREFULLY! apply a drop of Cyanoacrylates glue i.e. "Crazy Glue" to a suitable stick / pin / rod / or the original remaining key, stick it to the broken stub, allow it to harden, and remove the broken key.

Broken key inside ignition


Your two choices are #1 remove and replace the ignition cylinder or #2 remove the cylinder, disassemble it and remove the broken key piece and reinstall cylinder. If you cannot handle the job, have a mechanic do it since it's quite a complex task getting that cylinder out and an even harder task removing the broken key piece.

How to remove ignition lock cylinder, broken key inside


If the key is broken off inside the cylinder and u still have the other half of the key u should be able to insert the remainder of the key to get the ignition to turn forward. You'll have to remove the covers surrounding the upper half of the steering column and you will see a small pin on the cylinder to push to remove the inner part with the broken key. the key has to be in the on position to remove the cylinder and just reverse the removal to put it back together.

Too much trouble to get the key that way. Use a very small drill bit in a Dremel style rotary tool to drill a hole on the end of the key. Use a paper clip to remove the broken key out of the cylinder.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Functional Lock


The following procedure applies to vehicles that have functional lock cylinders. Such cylinders either have a key available or known key numbers from which a key can be made.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
  3. Using a 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column.

Using the key, turn the ignition lock cylinder to the RUN position, then depress the retaining pin using a wire pin or small drift

To install:
  1. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
  2. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Non-Functional Lock
The following procedure applies to vehicles in which the ignition lock is inoperative and the lock cylinder cannot be rotated due to a lost or broken key, unknown key number or a lock cylinder cap that has been damaged and/or broken to the extent that the lock cylinder cannot be rotated.
