I have a toyota pickup and the key wont come out of the ingntion


Make sure you have the key turned to the off position.
When the key is in the off position, try and wiggle, jiggle, and pull lightly on the key to pull it out.
You may need a new ignition switch if you have constant problems with pulling the key out, or putting it in.

Ignition to tight and key will not turn.


Try turning the steering wheel while you turn the ignition key.

sometimes the linkage that locks your steering wheel puts pressure on the switch mechanisum and keeps it from turning

Hope Its this simple!

1) Wrong key 2) Shift lever out of park or neutral 3) If steering is locked, it is exerting too much pressure on the ignition, try jiggling it while turning key.

Key wont comeout of the ignition switch, do i need a new switch?


First, spray a bunch of WD-40 into the key cylinder -- use the red tube which comes with the can to do this -- put something on the floor to catch the oil dripping down.

This has a good chance of solving your problem. After a couple of days, buy some graphite lubricant (Pep Boys) to blow into the key cylinder. Repeat the graphite every month or so for 6 months.

My Car will not start, the key wont turn at all


THe tumblers in the ignition cylinder are probably worn therefore won't alow you to turn the key. Try inserting the key and jiggle it around while you are trying to start it. Sometimes it will work.

Ignition problem


did you buy this car used or new, if it was used somebody could have tried stealing the vehicle like you described by putting anything in it and possibly jammed the ignition switch which could be why it takes so long to get it into position.good luck.

Key problem again


Hey Chelsea,

Back at it again right. Hey that black cable that you jiggled ( i like that work jiggle) must be the cause of your problem. Make sure that the cable is not loose or anything like that. I am most certain that is you check the cable you'll see the its loose. I really hope you finally get to drive your car without worrying about your key not wanting to come of the ignition. That sucks by the way. Let me know if this works Chelsea.
