It depends on what kind of car you have. If the key fits in the steering column and you have an air bag, take it to a garage as yu can deploy an air bag accidentally which most cost around$1000

Call a locksmith. They have the tools necessary to take the lock apart and pop the key out. Or at least they have the tools to pull the key out - perhaps without taking anything apart.

You must replace the ignition switch if you cannot get the key out.

Drill it. Or call a locksmith and have them do it. They may be able to pull the broken key out.

The key to my ignition broke off in the ignition. Luckily, I was able to insert the remainder of the key in the ignition and turn on my car. In order to fix the problem, I had to take my car to the dealer and I am pretty sure they removed it and installed a new ignition "key hole" keyed to my car. It is a 1990, and I believe the problem happened approx 1993?

A locksmith may be able to remove the broke key and make a new one. Or just replace the ignition.
