Or your key may go into the ignition fine and it turns but the car will not start because the transponder chip key has been broken. Now what?

If your key has broken off inside the ignition of your car, do not try to remove it by yourself. Doing this can cause irreparable damage to the ignition. Oftentimes, a person who attempts to extract a key that has broken off inside any type of lock will cause fragments of the key to break off as they try to extract it from the lock. These fragments may be almost impossible to see but they will eventually cause the lock (or ignition) to break down completely and a complete replacement will eventually become necessary. If this has happened to your car, do not attempt to extract the key yourself by using pliers. Instead, call a certified, licensed locksmith right away. They will be able to extract the broken key from the lock or ignition switch without causing any further damage to it.
If your car has a digital key and this has stopped working, a locksmith will be able to help you with this problem as well. Locksmiths are highly trained professionals and have very advanced equipment to address any issue they may encounter with any lock or key.
