If you're talking about the ignition lock/key cylinder in the column. It's going to be quite difficult due to the fact there is a rod stopping the cylinder from coming out unless it is pushed and has to be pushed when the key is on/turned to the ACC position. Now I have seen in a very few cases of the ignition switch (the electrical part) being locked up. Here are a couple of pictures but at this point like Dennis said I need more information in order to help better.

Make sure that you steering wheel is not putting too much pressure on the lock. If your wheels are cramped it can make the key switch turn very hard. On one occasion, I had to hold the steering wheel with both hands and have someone else turn the key.

I have a 2000 Toyota Tacoma and the ignition switch will not turn to the off position. What do I need to check?


Lillian, it could be a shifter/interlock problem, take out of park then forcefully put back in park and try key. Take into a good Tech., have them diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My ignition switch is stuck in lock..I have key. I'm trying to replace it. Its on a 97 4runner sr5 please help!


You need a punch and hammer to back off the security bolts that hold the lock cylinder to the column. The heads of the bolts twist off at the factory leaving a smooth head. You have to back them out with a sharp point canter punch and a hammer.

How do I reconnect the ignition wires on a 195 Toyota 4runner?


You need to access a wiring diagram of the car. You might find one online. If you can't, pick up a Chilton or Haynes book for the car. They have wiring diagrams.
Your local library might have them.

Key stuck in ignition of 1996 Toyota 4Runner


This truck has a switch in the shifter assembly that tells the ignition the truck is in Park or not. If the shifter doesn't hit that switch right this can happen. Also, there is a component in the ignition (a solenoid) that allows the key to be released if the Park switch is pushed. To be sure it's one of these two things, try this.... Get the key stuck, then disconnect the battery. If the key comes right out, it's either the switch or the solenoid. Good luck!
