HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
You can try spraying some graphite around the key at the key cylinder then wiggling the key out, but I have to tell you that the vast majority of times it is going to take removing the key cylinder and then prying the key out.
And the wrong key in this vehicle's ignition cylinder will cause either the immobilizer to lose memory and require reprogramming with a diagnostic scan tool, or will actually damage it and require its replacement.
Sorry that you have had to wait so long for bad news on this

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
