1997 Toyota Camry Key Wont turn, Ignition Lock problem -1997 toyota camry FIXED!!! I see a lot of Douches with a capital D trying to charge people to fix this extremely common issue with this Camry ignition cylinder. OK pull the plastic guard off encasing the steering column. Get a phillips head screwdriver and remove the 2 screws holding the little off-white connector at the rear of the module(it has the wires to the ignition running to it). Get a pair of pliers or a small crescent wrench and while trying to turn the key use the wrench to turn the little rod sticking out of the back of the module. Make sure your turning it WITH the direction the key is trying to turn it. It should immediate be freed. Voila IT WORKS! AND THATS WHY PEOPLE DONT TRUST MECHANICS! HOW CAN YOU CHARGE SOMEONE FOR THAT INFO?

Normally we would replace the lock cylinder and housing at the dealer.....but if it were my car I'd uses a punch and hammer to slam that pin in and remove the cylinder. It's worth a try first before having to replace the entire housing.

you ignition locked up, take some wd-40 and spray it into the ignition hole, let it sit for 2 mins and do it again, then immediatly stick the key in and start working the ignition back and foirth.....
this will free up what ever is locked up....

SOURCE: Ignition locked up
I have seen this compaint many times, it is caused by the lock pins getting broken or jammed, you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder to repair this.

Remove the cylinder bench test to see if it turns un obstructed, if so check orientation of cam on cylinder and also check if ignition switch will allow you to turn using screwdriver Do not operate car using screw driver steering can and will lock up on you.
also try a different key. While you bench test cylinder you can clean and lube it using lube sold specifically for locks do not use just any oil it will trap dirt

I have the same problem. I put some graphite down the key hole and pushed it around in there and it loosened it up a bit to the point I could turn the ignition. If you have a replacement key, start using that. It should help as well.Teeth on old key may be wearing down. Lastly, I keep a screwdriver in the car to whack against key when it's in the ignition if it's stuck. A few taps on the key will always unlock the ignition.
Or, go but a new ignition and key set....
