When Your Car Key Is Stuck In The Ignition Switch Or Door Lock

There are various reasons why your car key can get jammed in the ignition.

Don’t try to get the key out forcefully or manipulate too much with the ignition, as you can cause more damage. Trust people with the right expertise to help you start your car and get you back on the road again.

One of the causes might be dirt or tiny lint blocking the ignition lock cylinder. You can try cleaning the ignition opening with some electrical cleaning spray. If this doesn’t help, it might mean that the issue is more serious. Perhaps the ignition lock cylinder is damaged. In this case, don’t manipulate the ignition switch too much, as it may cause more harm than good. It is better to call for a professional car locksmith to help.

Sometimes the key gets stuck because of a broken or blocked steering lock. In some cases, when the steering lock is not in the right position, the key might not turn and get jammed in the ignition. Try to place the steering wheel gently in the proper position to release the key.

Both of these situations end up in locking you out of the car or unable to start the vehicle.

Car key extraction is not a very difficult process, though it may seem like it. The car ignition and car door locks are delicate and complex mechanisms, but for a professional locksmith, it should only take a few minutes to conduct a proper car key extraction. Naturally, sometimes it might get longer, it depends on whether the car key is jammed or broken off in the ignition or car door lock.

An important thing to bear in mind is that after car key extraction, you may need a spare key or a new car key made to unlock and start your car. We can make a new car key for you from the lock, even without a spare key, but it is recommended to always have a spare key available for your car. That way, if your original car key is lost, stolen or gets stuck again, you can have a replacement car key made for much less and without any urgency: you can still drive the car in the meanwhile.

Also, never try to start your car with a broken key. It will definitely cause more damage. Even if you manage to actually start the ignition, it can be very dangerous to drive with a broken key because any bump or jolt could cause the connection to falter and your car to suddenly stop running.
