Welcome to JustAnswer.

If a key is stuck in the ignition there are only a few options. The first solution I use with good success is turning the key with a set of pliers and tapping the end of the key grip with a hammer. Put pressure on the key with the pliers in the off position and tap or pound light to medium force on the end of the key. Keep pressure on the key with the pliers and it will usually come out. If this will not work a mobile locksmith should be able to remove the key or replace the ignition lock assembly.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Thanks, Honda-Man

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
