Exclamation key broke off ignition

I recently bought a 06 Cobalt SS LSJ it was a repo from the bank and only had 80k and i was told and ran and drove no issues! come to find out the last owner upgraded the clutch and flywheel and installed the clutch backwards so had to replace all of that but the car only came with 2 keys one chipped key which was mostly broke off inside the ignition and a non chipped key for the doors and trunk. the broken key would still start the car so i wasnt too worried at about it at the time but now that ive removed the engine and trans and fixed everything the last owner messed up and put it all back together the anti theft light has come one and it no longer recognizes the broken off key and wont start and cuts off fuel pump so now the broken key is the main priority my problem is it wont relearn the broken key ive tried the whole turn ignition to on and wait 10 minutes even waited 30 and the anti theft light will not go away but not surprised the key is broke so now i need to get it out tried using tweezers but its kinda too deep to reach and even tried getting the lock cylinder to pop out by sticking something in the little hole and it will only come out like 2 mm and gets stuck so any tips or tricks would be appreciated whats my next step? Can i go to a junk yard and get a whole new ignition or what?? really close to starting and driving it and this damn key is holding me back.
