Looking at your signature line....this is a crisis - make sure you break GROUND, just don't do it backwards.

What kind of vehicle is this?

Oh never mind, I type too slow, someone answered.

Not to ask the obvious here, Your steering wheel isn't locked against the lock cylindar? Try moving the wheel as you turn the key.

If it doesn't come right out, you will need to go a little further to move the broken end back so it will slide out of the hole.

If it isn't the lock, and I've seen a couple that weren't, there are two pot-metal pieces that can break and cause this. Hope that isn't what it is, they are a pain. They are the rack and pinion that the lock cylinder turns to actuate the switch rod.

No, any good auto parts store will have a lock cylinder with keys.
