FAQs

Will it be necessary to replace my ignition cylinder at the same time?

Although we understand this is a big concern, we can't always answer this question until we see your car in person. We need to consider several different factors when determining if it will be necessary to replace the cylinder of your ignition after extracting a key from it. One of the biggest factors that goes into this decision is how badly the key broke and how far the pieces of it became lodged in your ignition cylinder.

Our locksmiths can typically extract the key without having to replace the ignition cylinder when its pieces are close enough to the surface of the key opening. When you apply a great deal of force to the ignition switch and a key breaks as a result, it could cause internal damage that we would be unable to repair.

We encourage you to seek an expert opinion for this problem by contacting our mobile locksmith dispatch center. A locksmith skilled in key extraction will be on the way to you within minutes.

Do you need to replace my car door lock too?

In most cases, we don't need to replace a lock on a car door immediately after extracting a stuck or broken key. The one exception is when the car door lock is too damaged from the key breakage to operate properly. You can feel confident in knowing that our crew has extensive education and experience to perform this function. They take extreme care to extract the key without causing damage to the car door or lock at the same time.

What is the average turnaround time for key extraction?

Many people express surprise when we say that we can normally complete the job in less than half an hour. Keep in mind that this time estimate depends on several unique factors, including whether the key broke inside of the ignition or it got stuck in a car door. The technician who arrives from We will look at your ignition or door lock and determine the best course of action to retrieve the key without damaging these parts of your car. The last thing we want to do is cause you additional stress. It's our job to take your stress away instead.

Is it a good idea to make a spare key?

Yes. The whole reason you called our mobile locksmith company is that you broke a key. That makes it impossible to drive your car if it's stuck in the ignition or difficult to access if you broke a key in a lock. Although you may feel tempted to try to start your car with a broken key or to hotwire it, we strongly advise against this. Not only could you cause further damage to your car, you could injure yourself in the process as well. By having us make a spare key, you will have it if this situation arises again in the future.

Can I start my ignition switch if it has pieces of the key stuck in it?

Although this might be physically possible, we strongly discourage you from trying it. Starting a car with two broken key pieces is not as simple as you might expect. In addition, it could damage your car even more. That is because the action of attempting to start the car forces the key's broken pieces even deeper into its ignition cylinder. We also advise against trying to open a car door when it has a broken key stuck inside of its lock. There's no need for you to take these risks when you can call us 24 hours a day and receive prompt, professional service.
