If you can see the broken end of the key, sometimes a straightened fine fish hook can be inserted and "grab" on to the brass of the broken key. good fishing! EGAD

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