Assuming you have the other end of the key, carefully put a drop of fresh superglue on the end of it. Don't get sloppy with the glue. Quickly insert the key and hold it with a light pressure downward for 30 seconds. Release the pressure and just let it sit for five minutes. Push down on the key then pull the key out. This has worked well for me every time I have seen the problem.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria key broke in ignition how to replace ignition


You will have to remove the steering wheel ( may need steering wheel puller after nut removed ) and the turn signal switch to gain access to a lock pin on the side of the key tumbler assembly , It will either be visible through a small hole or a very thin punch out in the face of the switch housing. push down on the pin and pull the switch straight out ( you need the key installed to allow this function , but as you said it is already there but broken off )

I have 1999 lexus ls470 -- same problem -- ignition switch


Its usually NOT the lock cylinder on the 470s, its usually the housing. The cylinder is on the dash and points towards the engine. Behind the plastic dash panel (once removed) you will see it in fact sticks in an aluminum tube that goes down 2 or 3 inches, then makes 2 turns, left to attatch to the steering column, and right to attatch to the actual ignition switch. The gear and rod assembly that the cylinder attatches to that allows it to rotate the switch usually shatters in the middle and the key starts freewheeling because there is no longer any attatchment to any of the gears or springs or click points that youd usually feel as the rotational resistance. UNFORTUNATELY this is not a 5 minute job (If it was, cars would be a breeze to steal!). Youll need at least a lock cylinder housing (dealer stock em, they break all the tyme), and IF your cylinder is undamaged, change the housing (it bolts to the steering column and extends from column towards center console area where the ignition SWITCH is actually located). If your cylinder is damaged or the housing is so shredded you cant remove the lock cylinder by normal means...then youll also need the cylinder...and it will have to be recoded to the vehicle so the anti theft will allow the new keys/cylinder to start the car. If your old cylinder and keys are intact, then transfer them to the new housing and car wont even know it happened and should start up and work as normal. Some can be removed intact, some cant...depends on how yours broke.

Broken key in ignition


you can only push this detent pin in when ignition is in on position try to put key that snapped in and wriggle it around to try and turn ignition to on position so then you can remove barrel
if cant turn need to change whole assembly by un doing shear pin for clamp that holds whole assembly on steering column or do what some lock smiths do drill out old barrel slowly and going up in drill sizes until barrel comes out from housing without damaging housing
