So I broke the key in the ignition. And I've lost the remote. What should I do?
How am I going to get this vehicle started again?

Who are you gonna call ,,,
Can you still get monkey grips onto the stub?
You are likely to need a replacement switch/keys off a scrapper.

Im with Aleks on this, try to get some needle nose on the end of the broken key. You could also try to fish it out with a paperclip. As for getting it started, You could get a lock cylinder and key set from the wreckers but im not sure what is involved to do that. The only other thing I can think of would be to hot wire the ignition or install a switch to start the car (idk if it will mess with the Can Bus system though). Best of luck to you with your Cali :)

If you can see what's left of the key in the ignition, one trick you can try is to straighten a paper clip, put a dab of super glue on the tip, and hold it against the stub for a minute or two (or until the super glue "sets"). Then try using the paper clip to pull the stub out.
