the trunk key is stuck in the ignition

Asked by Jul 09, 2017 at 11:03 AM about the 2001 Kia Rio

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

You probably shouldn't have done that.

I know that but how do I get it out


I would start with a small amount of wd40 on an extended paperclip. If you don't have any wd40, you can insert the paperclip into an avocado for similar lubrication purposes. Use the paperclip to gently insert into the ignition around any openings, all while jiggling the other key and pushing in and out.

Thank you. I ended up taking out the ignition and got the key out
