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
