A locksmith may be able to remove the broke key and make a new one. Or just replace the ignition.
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?
Drill it. Or call a locksmith and have them do it. They may be able to pull the broken key out.
If the key is broken off in the ignition of the 96 Crown Victoria it will have to be picked out. If the key is out and broken, a locksmith can use the broken pieces to make a new key or rekey the ignition.
You broke it.
You must replace the ignition switch if you cannot get the key out.
Gum maybe?? or tweaser??

No a diode will not work when the ignition key is off.
You will need to remove the retaining ring at the top of your 2003 Kia ignition cylinder. The ignition cylinder will slide out. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the ignition cylinder.

call a locksmith you probably damaged the ignition switch and it need to be replaced.ask him if he can fit the new switch to the same key as the original.
If you have broke your ignition switch or lost the key disconnect the ignition barrel from the white connector plug then pull off the the key hole then with a knife peel back the casing around the wires to bear metal and wrap them together and attach the ignition back and it should be like turning the key.
A battery cannot be drained by a shorted diode when the ignition key is off.
Well, it sounds like the chip that is in your key may have broke or got stuck on a part of the ignition. I had that problem. This happened not long after I had had to have the ignition replaced?!?
If the key is still in the ignition, leave it there! Use your spare key to open and lock the doors as you continue to drive it. Get it to a reliable mechanic. He/she will remove the entire ignition and have a duplicate key made. If you try to repair it yourself, you may wind up having to re-key the entire vehicle and this can be much more expensive. Good luck.
try getting some very sticky putty to try and pull it out. If your ignition is not electronic, you can use a very strong magnet to extract the key
1.) Insert ignition key 2.) Move the key from LOCK TO OFF, THEN PAUSE, 3.) Move ignition key to ON/RUN 4.) Move ignition key BACK TO OFF 5.) Move ignition key to ON/RUN 6.) Move ignition key BACK TO OFF 7.) Move ignition key to ON/RUN and STOP THERE! The THREE MOVEMENTS from OFF to ON/RUN should be done in LESS THAN FIVE (5) SECONDS. You then read the codes where the truck's odometer shows TOTAL MILES, NOT TRIP MILES. (NOTE: FOR EXACT LOCATION OF KEY POSITIONS ON IGNITION REFER TO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL.)
I hope the key is not broke inside of the ignition. If it is you will need more than a key replacement. But to have your key replaced all you need to do is find a local hardware store. Even with just the broke key they can do a replacement.
Flush the lock with a lubricant. Use the handle of the broken key as a guide. Find a thin wire and stiff it along the sides of the broken key part. Hold the wire in place and remove the part.
I propose getting a new key. If you broke it off in the ignition, well, your best chance is to take it to a lock smith or the dealer. Maybe if you take the broken key to the dealer, they can give you a new one. I am not sure on this though.
How can I take out the key from the ignition key in a BMW 325i 2001. I can turn on the engine but the key doesn't come out when I turn off.
It's broke you idiot!
The key and the ignition lock are badly worn. Try a different key if it doesn't fix it you need to replace the ignition lock.
In most cases its because the the key is not in the OFF position.
