my key broke in the ignition now how do i get the broken part out do i call a locksmith or have to replace the part
my key always sticks, and I have to really work with it to get it out, without setting the alarm off, which happens all the time.
Sticky ignition causes key to break off inside. That was in July. Now I can't find the part or anyone to help find it or fix it. I'm a single mom and have no idea what I'm going to do.
Getting the key out is a real chore. Pushing it in after turning the truck off is a real pain. Upside ... keeps my wife from driving my truck.
Ignition switch would not turn at all when trying to start the vehicle. A very short burst of WD-40 into the keyhole freed the stuck mechanism and it has worked very smoothly ever since.
