This is the method for removing the lock and key switch ,not the electrical portion.
remove the screws from the bottom of the shroud. Remove the lower shroud so you can get a good clear view of the ignition lock. There is a small silver pin (retainer) that is holding the lock in along the bottom of the ignition housing.While applying pressure to the pin with an icepick or similiar tool turn the key clockwise until you feel the pin drop into the lock. At this point you can remove the lock cylinder with a little help of a flatbade screwdriver.

How to Replace the Ignition in a Toyota Truck

The two primary components in a Toyota truck's ignition system are the actual ignition switch and the lock cylinder, which work with the ignition key. On most current models of the Tundra and Sequoia, you won't need to completely disassemble the entire steering panelicon1.png to access the switch and cylinder. Keep in mind that the exact procedure can vary depending on the year and model of your Toyota truck.

Instructions
    • 1 Disconnect the truck battery's negative cable by loosening the cable's clamp nut and detaching the cable from the battery post. Set the cable aside somewhere where it can't accidentally touch the battery terminal.
    • 2 Remove the under-dash panel on the left side of the truck by removing its four retaining screws and pulling it off. Detach the hood release cable by lifting the lever, removing the screws and disengaging the cable from the lever handle.
3.
  • Remove the air duct that is below the steering columnicon1.png to access the ignition switch. Unplug the electrical connectors at the rear of the switch, remove the mounting screws with a screwdriver and detach the switch from the lock cylinder housing.
  • 4 Detach the illumination ring by pulling out the plastic pin on the side. Turn the lock cylinder into the Accessory position with the key and insert a small screwdriver into the hole at the bottom of the ignition switch casting. Press the release bottom with this screwdriver as you pull the lock cylinder straight out.
  • 5 Insert the replacement lock cylinder with its own key into the ignition switch casing. Make sure you insert it so the cylinder is in the Accessory position. Replace the illumination ring with its pin.
  • 6 Mount the replacement ignition switch on the housing with its mounting screws and connecticon1.png it to the electrical connectors.
  • 7 Re-install all other components--the air duct, under-dash panel and battery cable--in the reverse order of removal.

    Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


    IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

    It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

    ----------

    Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

    ---------

    But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

    -----------
