If the key is still fully inserted into the lock, you can still turn the key to start the engine. You might need needle nose pliers. Also, remember to hold the broken off part of the key near the ignition so that the sensor can "read" the microchip in the key head and allow the car to run more than two seconds. This is a security, antitheft feature of the smart key.
