Can you use pin-nose pliers to grasp the key or a Popsicle stick with an adhesive to stick to the broken key and remove that way

Where is the steering wheel lock located?

If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

one other way, is to destroy the cylinder, (ask a thief) and turn the guts
until it unlocks,

Key ignition door chime will not go off even with key removed

This sounds like the contact arm inside the ignition is stuck, try spraying the cylinder lock with a small amount of wd40 and then work the key in and out of the lock, if that doesnt work then remove the lock and check for broken contact, heres a picture to help you understand the way it operates, good day.johnjohn2_118.jpg

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
