Remove broken key from ignition

Stored scooter in garage and forgot to remove key from ignition. Had a very cold winter. Not sure, but maybe moisture got in. Anyway, turned key and it totally broke off in ignition. Sent for, and received replacement key. But have NO idea how to remove broken key from ignition. Is there an instrument or tool that might get broken key out of ignition?

I'd recommend a dental pick.

If you have a habor frieght near buy you can buy a cheap small pick set. If possible try to grab it on both sides and it should come out , its almost always worked for me.

Good luck, Rob

SOURCE: a key broke off in the ignition of our handicap

This is a common issue with the travel scooters. It is usually an easy fix without having to replace the key-switch.
You need the following tools:
Good eyesight and / or good glasses to see down inside the key switch. A strong, thin needle. A jewelers flat screwdriver or eyeglass screwdriver.
The broken key inside the switch will have a flat back and a toothed topped. The toothed side moves a series of spring loaded pins inside the lock.
With the switch turned to the off position...
Place the jewelers screwdriver down inside the switch where the key's teeth are, pushing back the spring pins, and getting leverage under one of the teeth to lift the key out.
The needle is used to release friction and back pressure off the key back against the switch housing.
Work it carefully and be patient.
Once the key piece is out try ebay for a replacement if needed.
A common key number for Pride scooters is the A126

I have a full propane gas cylinder for my grill in my garage. It is very cold in the garage and I'm getting a propane smell. Does the cold effect this or is there probably another problem?

Cold shouldn't present any special hazard to a propane cylinder. Just make sure the valve is fully off. You can check for leaking with a little soapy water solution around the valve - look for bubbles. If any doubt, remove from enclosed space.

How do I winterize a mobility scooter

If you are storing it over winter. I would charge the batteries and disconnect them. Check them periodically and charge once a month until the warm stuff comes around. It can sometimes be better to take the batteries indoors as extreme cold or heat can adversely affect your battery life and performance. If you intend to use it through winter, just keep it dry, warm (if possible) and lengthen your normal charging regime (around 10-14 hours overnight should do it) You can get any number of waterproof dashboard covers and things that keep moisture out of the sensitive parts. It is also worth getting a full lubrication and service from a reputable local dealer.

Thanks Dave

Honda chf 50 scooter hard to start when cold

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.

Since you remove the window unit in the Winter and reinstall it in the Summer, as you should. Check the inside of the unit to make sure there's nothing blocking the fan blades. If you stored it in a basement or exterior shed or garage, a Field Mouse may have built a nest in it. Believe me, I've seen stranger things than that happen.

MODEL DM 162EBS. Why is it when I switch my dehumidfier on 10 minutes later it goes to defrost. [ WHY?]

Let's think thru the dehumidification process--

A dehumidifer needs to create a COLD surface, on which to condense the moisture in the room.
If your room is quite cool, it is esily possible that the COLD surface can go below freezing-- Now the water is trapped in the ice-- So-- it has to defrost, to melt off the ice, and start all over again!

Can you move the Dehumidifier to a warmer spot-- maybe near a radiator, or a heat register? -- You will remove much more moisture in that way, too..

Just a question: Most homes are WAY TO DRY during the winter months-- are you sure you need to dehumidify your living area? (Maybe you are drying the basement?-- or a wet area?)

Just seeing if I can help

I live in Wisconsin and my 1994 Subaru Legacy will not start in the winter when it's cold. I have had no problems in the Spring, Summer and Fall but when the temperature outside goes below 15-20 degrees...

Keep the gasline antifreeze in for moisture at the pumps and if not running 5W30 weight oil could make a differance as well.........Hope this helps.
