Tip & How-To about Toyota Camry
This is very common problem and most vehicle holders usually face this. But most people don't decide what should be done in this condition? Here are some suggestions about the key stuck problems for them.
Most often key stuck in the ignition and unable to lock the car where as the key is not broken. This situation might be occurred due to problem in shifter mechanism which means that your shift interlock is out of order. Immediately go the repair shop and address the problem to the repairman. If you delay in solving this problem, your airbag will deploy which may be cause of serious injury.
Sometime you try to move your key in the ignition and feel panic when it stuck in the ignition. You try again and again but couldn't get success to recognize what the matter is. In this condition first make your body relaxes! Take a long breath to relax your panic. Now move the steering left and right. If it doesn't move, this means that locking system in the steering wheel has been damaged. In this condition try to turn the steering wheel against the direction of the car's wheels again and again. Because your key stuck due to a pressure in steering column, when you do this, the pressure would be released and after a clicking sound your key will be released
Sometime you enter the key in ignition and move it to start the engine. Engine starts but key stuck in ignition and it does not go inside for locking the car. One of the probable cause of this situation is misplacing of cable in the steering column. You can check the cable under the dashboard and place the cable carefully. If you don't know about cables of ignition, so take the expert help because you can join the wrong cable which may be cause of short circuit.
The most common problem which we usually face is old and defective cars are: when we enter the key to start the car's engine, it makes effort to move the key again and again. It starts but after getting some effort this situation also occurs in switching off the engine. The cause of this problem is wire or button loosing. Wires and buttons are fitted in car's ignition and when enter the key; it does not reach at the place where it presses the button or connect the wires. This problem can only be solved with the expert help because the ignition has to be opened for solving this problem.

Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza:
Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger
side (left). The headlight assembly
needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the
left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of
the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise
(to the left). Pull the pin straight up
to remove. The headlight assembly is now
loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that
still holds the assembly. Pull the
headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held
just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the
gasket out of the grill cowling. The
assembly should pull straight out. The
wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and
pull out the light holder. Change the
bulb. Do not punch your man-card for
credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second
time. Once you have put the L-pin in
place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch
I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.
