Can You Perform a Broken Ignition Key Extraction?

If your car key broke off inside your car’s ignition, our broken key extractors can reach you promptly and remove the broken key for you. When you call upon our car key extraction services, our locksmith technicians will assess the issue, and will then get to work carefully removing the broken ignition key that is jamming up your car ignition.

Removing a key is not as simple as just wiggling it around back and forth and praying for it to come out. Most ignitions in today's automobiles are highly tuned systems that are made to be compatible with only one particular key and go through a certain series of motions before the vehicle can be started. If any step along this process malfunctions, your car key can jam. Even worse, if the key breaks inside the ignition, this can lead to even more serious issues. The important thing here is to find someone with the right specialized tools and lubrication to delicately remove the key.

Car Key Extraction from Car Door Locks

If your car key has gotten jammed inside your car door lock, our car key extraction experts can help you remove your car key from your car lock.

In many cases, you may have a well-maintained key, but for some reason, it still gets stuck. Whether or not you know what caused your key to getting jammed in your door lock, our locksmiths can help you resolve the issue as quickly and smoothly as conceivable.

There are many factors that could lead to the corrosion of door locks. Rain, snow, heat and cold weather can take their toll on metal door locks. Rust can develop on the inner parts of your car door lock… The age of your vehicle can also play a major role in the wear of your car door locks. The older your car is the more it is susceptible to general wear and tear. Furthermore, the locks, cylinders and other aspects of them may fail with age.

New Car Key Cutting after ExtractionCar key extraction

Similarly, as the ignition takes on wear over time, so too does your key. When a key is flawed it will not rotate the lock cylinders properly and can get stuck. Similarly, you can run into a problem if you accidentally break your key in the door lock. In the rare chance that you manage to remove your key, don’t attempt to insert it again! This puts you at risk of once again getting it stuck, doing more damage to the lock cylinders or even breaking it.

After our car key extraction service is completed, our competent locksmith on call will be able to repair your car door lock or ignition switch for you on location. Once that is completed, we can cut new keys for you so that you don’t run into the same problem again in the future.
