mad Ignition Help!

I broke my key in the ignition in my 1991 Ford Probe!! Right now I have every tore out except the steering wheel (that's on there good), but need some more advice on where to go now. I have no other key for it either. I would like to just put an on/off switch with a push button start. Any ideas on which wires I need to pull off to do this? Also how do I disconnect the steering lock. This car is old and ugly(219,000 miles) but it runs like a champ. Any advice I would appreciate

Tony

What does that mean?
Here's a thought... Call a locksmith, tell him what's going on, and ask how much to remove broken key and make a new copy.Then you can drive it like normal. It may not be as expensive as you think. How much of the key is broken off?

Re: Ignition Help!

The locksmith tried today and cannot get the broken portion out. I have removed the steering wheel, panels, etc. to expose the ignition switch.

Re: Ignition Help!

Hmmm, I'm wondering if you could find/use a really strong vacuum to pull out the piece of key...
