I've been trying to figure this out all afternoon. I believed my problem was with the ignition cylinder. This is different than the ignition switch.
I was able to remove all the paneling in my 98 Camry and access pin hole to remove the cylinder. I had to remove the ignition switch to fidget with the back of the ignition cylinder to get the ignition cylinder to move to the Acc position. I replaced the ignition cylinder and re attached the old ignition switch.
I'm not sure I did the re assembly in the proper order or correctly because after putting all the dash covers on I started the car. Great I though, but then the ignition cylinder would not turn to the acc position or off position. So now I could turn the car on never remove the key or turn it off.
I'm wondering if the problem with my ignition was not the ignition cylinder, but the ignition switch or maybe the piece that is behind the cylinder that inserts into the ignition switch. I'm also wondering I reassembled the ignition cylinder and switch correctly.... Both the switch and the cylinder run about $80 each so if I could forgo replacing both I would be happy. I'm going to try and remove the switch tomorrow......

Turn the key and nothing but a click,,,,repeat this a few times, and then it will start. Thought is was the starter so we replaced it... same thing. Could it be the ignition switch or should we try something else. this is a 1998 toyota camry..
