Hi friend, to get your tumbler out, force your front keyhole(the stainless part) to position 2. insert 2mm bicycle spokes all the way through, this will disenade the lock of your ignition cap( the black cover) pull hard the cap and if you may use flat screw driver to help the cap come-off the ignition housing. your tumbler will come-off with your ignition cap.

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working


sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

If the key won't turn in the ignition barrel, it could be as simple as the key is worn. If you have a spare key try that first.

KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

This car has a chip key, you can't just put any old key in it it must be programmed to not turn on the security system and disable starting, which is what you have now, the system has locked you out.

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

A key broke off in the ignition. i need to know how to remove the ignition switch cylinder


Hi Once the cowling around the ignition is removed, turn ignition switch to the first position (because the key is in the switch you should be able to rotate to the first position)
On the top side of the ignition barrel there is a spring loaded pin ( this pin is difficult to see and get at)
When you have located this pin press it in ( use the cranked end of an alen key )
While its pressed in pull out the ignition barrel with the broken key in it
when you have the barrel in your hand you will be able to get broken key out.
All the best with this problem

How can i take the ignition switch off the clip that u push to take the key out is stuck


Hi ,
If you mean the ignition key barrel ??? The key needs to be inserted into the switch assy and turned to (usually) the first key position, there will be a small hole in the barrel assy in order to press a locating pin (check replacement barrel for exact location). Press the pin and pull the key assy from the barrel assy. ( door locks can be coded to new key also) Good Luck

How to remove ignition barrel from 1997 toyota celica


Remove the plastic covers around the ignition switch, insert the key in the ignition and turn the key to ignition on position (just before start position) now locate the pin on the side of the ignition switch which is flush with the aluminium housing holding the barrel,the pin is about 3 mm in diameter.Gently press the pin inwards (which is spring loaded) with a sharp pointed object e.g small screwdriver and at the same time while holding the pin, pull on the ignition key as if you want to remove the key, and the barrel will slide out completely.
