Question about 2000 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

Key will not get into the groove to turn to the start position

I must giggle the key back and forth until the key gets in the "groove" to start. As long as the key is not taken out it is fine and will turn over.

The key is worn from use . Try another key or if you have not one,Try taking the key to a lock shop and have then add a piece of paper to compensate for the wear, when cutting  another key  or see if somehow their is a code for them to use to make an exact new key..

Had starter checked and it is good.have to turn key back and forth several times before car starts.it doesnt make any noise or anything,it does nothing at all until the 2nd or 3rd time sometimes


Could be a worn out ignition switch & the
starter solenoid could be bad

Don't personally care how or what was tested,
based on what I see on this site, not much is done
correctly, when you pay someone

Had problems with starting , sometimes you turn the key and nothing , turn the key on off really fast then you would get dash board lights and she would start . then if you had to indicate it would cut...


This could be a tough one.

My gut instinct tells me the root of the not starting without turning the key back and forth is a ignition switch.

The water loss issue is likely unrelated. Suggest check hoses, hose connections, radiator, heater core, water pump, etc. for signs of coolant leakage.

Good luck with this!

My brothers 1985 buick regal wont start and there is no sound when the key is turned.


try starting in neutral or giggling the shifter while holding the key in start. If this doesn't work, troubleshoot using the "no click" flow of my post at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My key gets stuck in the ignition. i have never had this problem before. the key slides in fine but it won't go to lock position. it was working fine all day until i had my oil changed. then it just quit,...


I am not sure what the cause is but mine started doing this the other day. My temporary solution is to wiggle the shifter while in the park position. You'll hear it clicking in the steering column. Between each wiggle back and forth try turning the key to the lock position. Sometimes mine take 3 or so tries, and sometimes 10 to 15. My car has also started to get stuck in the park position. I believe it is in direct relation to the ignition seizing up.

2001 Dodge Dakota Ignition Problem or Battery?


i would recommend replacing the terminals. but before doing that tighten the ones that are on there as much as possible. if that doe not solve it then replace the terminals and make sure it is tight on the battery. if thats not it, then make sure the battery is the correct one for the car. and the deal with the key could possibly the tumbler, or it could be that the steering wheel is locked and needs to be shimmied back and forth to start it. if this does not help please repost.

2000 Toyota Solara key locks sticking


Late model Toyota's have had a significant amount of key and lock problems. Find a locksmith that specializes in automotive. Your key may need to be "decoded" (new key cut to factory specs) or new door lock or both.
