Yes, it is possible to break your car key. Just like the other parts of your car, your car key can become worn out over time and may eventually break. Your car key has the potential of breaking in the lock, the ignition, or breaking if you drop them on the hard pavement. While that last one is pretty unlikely, you never know! Car keys can break and applying too much pressure to them in the ignition may cause your older key to snap in half.
We’ve all been in a situation where a key has broken and the frustration is palpable. It’s not like you just misplaced them and have the chance of finding them again, your key is actually physically broken and there is no way for you to open your car or home. That’s the absolute worst!

We will be able to extract your car key from the lock or ignition, carefully as to not damage any inner workings of your vehicle.
