how much should it cost to replace ignition?

I went to drive my car and I put my key in, turned it, but the car wouldn't turn over or anything, but the radio and lights came on. When I tried to take the key out, it wouldn't let me turn it back enough. Then without much pressure the key broke. My car has never had problems starting before, so should it need the whole ignition replaced, or just the lock cylinder? I have a 94 Ford Taurus, so how much should this cost? How much would it cost at a dealership, I don't have the tools or experience to do it.

It'll probably have to be drilled out. Done it many times. All you need is a key and lock cylinder kit. If your unsure, let a pro do it. Otherwise you'll be putting in a column. Good luck. Cert GM tech long time

The lock and tumbler should be around 25 to 30 $. Labor to remove and replace steering wheel about 100 $.

I wouldn't take it to the dealer, I would call a local locksmith to help you. They are usually cheaper, faster, and come to you.
