The key is broken inside of the ignition switch. Do I need to have the ignition switch replaced?
Hi. More than likely, yes, unless there is enough of the key left to extract it with a pair of pliers. Once you replace the lock cylinder and key, the vehicle will have to be programmed to recognize the new key. If you cannot get the key out on your own, I suggest you have a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, replace your ignition cylinder.
