SOURCE: Ignition switch 84 Ford F150 no key

Hi,
When you say you were able to remove it - does this mean the broken part of the key? if it was, then just take both pieces to a locksmith that cuts auto keys, and have a replacement cut. If it uses a transponder, make sure this is copied also.

With a working key, remove any plastic surround around the lock mechanism (put the steering wheel back on), and look at the lock mechanism around the actual lock. Turn the key to position 1. This should allow a small pin on the side of the lock body to be pressed in - releasing the lock cylinder, which will come out on the key when you pull it.

These are some makes where you have to drill to depress the catch, but this is a hands-on job for an auto locksmith.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

A key broke off in the ignition of our handicap motorized scooter


This is a common issue with the travel scooters. It is usually an easy fix without having to replace the key-switch.
You need the following tools:
Good eyesight and / or good glasses to see down inside the key switch. A strong, thin needle. A jewelers flat screwdriver or eyeglass screwdriver.
The broken key inside the switch will have a flat back and a toothed topped. The toothed side moves a series of spring loaded pins inside the lock.
With the switch turned to the off position...
Place the jewelers screwdriver down inside the switch where the key's teeth are, pushing back the spring pins, and getting leverage under one of the teeth to lift the key out.
The needle is used to release friction and back pressure off the key back against the switch housing.
Work it carefully and be patient.
Once the key piece is out try ebay for a replacement if needed.
A common key number for Pride scooters is the A126

1994 toyota camry key broke off in ignition and now need to replace it.


You must somehow get the ignition to the "on" position. Remove the cover around the steering column and there should be a hole below the ignition switch/key cylinder. Insert a drill bit (a size that can go into the hole), tap it with a hammer until the key cylinder can slide out. Remember in order to do this, the key must be set to "on". If you are unable to to get it to the "on" position. You must drill the lock pin inside that hole until the key cylinder can be removed.

Removing and replacing ignition switch for 91' toyota previa


the only way i found that you can replace the ignition switch is to take it to somebody who has a strong enough drill bit, they will then have to drill out the rods that appear to be welded in, the guys at the dealership ended up really struggling and i got stuck with a big bill,
by the way any auto parts store charge you about $100 for the ignition switch as well as $100 for the lock cylinder which chances are you will need at that point, especially if you have the problem any of the older toyotas have, which is keys broke off in the ignition,
for as great of vehicles as toyota has made you would thinnk the keys would be stronger, but my previa van is the third i have owned and is the third that had a key that broke in it, and this one eventually stopped turning with only have a key, and $300 later and after every homie of mine who was a mechanic telling me they were lost on this ignition, and it is running again, so best of luck to any who check this out mcl
Why use a drill bit? A 4.5 mm metal drill did the job for me in approx. 2 minutes. (A 91 model though).

A would be robber broke into my 99 Dodge 3500 diesel tooka drill to my ignition.I replaced ignition switch and key tumbler now it will not start


if this system has an antitheft control then the key that came with the ign switch may be the wrong key the original key may have a trasponder/chip in it the new key may not have that if it does it would need to be programmed for your vehicle

I broke the key in the inginotion what do i replace


You'll want to replace the Ignition Cylinder & keys, not the ignition switch, which actually mounts dwn the steering column and connects to the part you will replace via a steel rod.

You may want to try and remove the broken key, get an extremely small drill bit, a matching long screw, drll the key in the thick part & pull it out. There are screw extractors but I believe they would be too large.

Just a really small drill bit, possibly even something like a paneling nail with grooves in it that's just enough larger to wedge into the key and give you the ability to remove it. If you get it straight & pull straight out, you could save some time. Hoping you have another key.

Use penetrating oil before drilling to get the key ready to glide out-if you try that.

Good luck
