when i got to my work, key got stuck on the ingition switch and won't come out. i finially took it out with a plier. now key goes in but won't turn. i think i gotta replace the ignition cylinder. how can i start the car without using the key? i gotta move the car to my garage to work on it. and how can i cut it off once i drive back home? thanks
I would feel bad posting the answer since thieves are always lurking and there seems to be so many posts as of late with cars driving away. It is possible, and yes, the wheel would lock without the key unless you defeat that mechanism.
Just pull out your trusty Helms or whatever manual that has the wiring schematics in it. You'll see how easy it is just by going through those diagrams.
Hope you can find a used cylinder and key for a good price.

you can hot wire it but i dont know how to. But even if you did hotwire it, wouldent the wheel lock up?
yeah it does, once hot wired, which you have to break ignition, you must break the steering column to move the wheel, we have gotten a lot of junkyard parts cars, so i know, your best bet is to tow it to the garage
iv seen it done, right now my friends car is gutted completely and i took it for a spin yesterday. he just used my car key to turn a little piece. just dont know which one.

thanks guys. i got answer. but if i replace, i gotta carry 2 set of keys, one for door, and the other for ignition. if i go to dealer, will they have ignition for my car? or do i have to change the door lock also?
Did it break off above where the tooling is on the key? (tooling is the notches cut into the key)I'm thinking it did since you were able to get it out with a pair of plyers. Take the two pieces to an Ace Hardware and have them cut you a new key. I used to do it for people all the time when I managed a Ace.
i would like to know aswell my moms crv cylinder doesnt work its gay cuz its in my garage its not in the way or anything but its a two car garage i wouldlike to move it to the shop classicauto to get fixed could u send me a how to
