SOURCE: my toyota camry 1995 key switch won't turn

I have had this problem. There could be a few reasons. ONE. The key itself is worn out...might be time for a replacement. Its amazing how fast that actually happens... TWO my brother who also has the same 95 camry as i do [in another color] had too much weight on his key chain [with all his other keys and twrinkets] for so long that it caused the ignition switch inside to pull down and not line up correctly inside. Which caused the key to only turn partway in the ignition and stop before the car could actually turn on. [He had to replace that part] I hope this has helped.

If it has been sitting for quite some time the fuel will go stale or condensed with water (water will sit on the bottom of wherever the fuel is....
1. Drain Fuel Bowl on Carburettor
2. Replace fuel filter
3. Drain off about 5 liters out of hte bottom of the tank.

REconnect all lines of system you have dissasembled and crank to see if it will start.... if no good within 1 minute of cranking... you may need to completely drain fuel tank and refill with fresh fuel.

To Prevent this from happening in the future you need to store with a full tank and blank off any vents to prevent air from entering the fuel system.... remove when coming out of storage and start!

SOURCE: ignition key cylinder

You have to have the ignition lock exposed, take the covers off above and below the lock body that holds the cylinder.
Insert the key fully into the keyway, and turn it to ACC. On the ignition lock body, press on the "stop pin", that pokes out of the lack body, above where the cylinder is housed. Press on the "stop-pin", and extract the cylinder. If the key can not be turn ed to ACC, the cylinder will not come out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please let me know if this solves your problem.

1992 toyota tercell wont start, will push start on 2nd gear. please help

Does the engine turn over at all when you try to start it?

Check the wires going to your starter solenoid to make sure everything is secure. If all wires are secure, remove the starter and take it to Autozone to get the starter and solenoid tested.

Your starter or solenoid is probably bad.

I also have a 92 tercel. The starter is on the back side of the engine/transmission near the firewall.

I think two 15mm screws hold it on. And its easier to get to and remove from the drivers side of the engine. Remove the duct going to the intake manifold and the air cleaner assembly(the plastic thing that the air filter is inside) to be able to pull it out more easily. And unplug the sensor on the back of the air cleaner housing. After you pull out the air filter, there are 3 screws that hold the air filter housing on. On the very bottom of the filter housing.

Why does a 1994 Toyota tercell slow down when u turn the ac?

remove the A/C compressor, put it in a vise on a bench, attach a crank handle and start spinning it by hand at very high rpms. now you have some idea of the load it puts on the engine, in addition to pushing the whole car down the road. the older the engine gets, the older the compressor gets, everything gets less efficient and that load increasingly burdens the engine. fill the back seat with concrete, same result.

Have a 1985 tercel, where and how do I check and or fill the clutch fluid?

Reservoir should be on the firewall near the brake M/C. Look for a little cup like in pic below with a tube coming out the bottom. That tube goes to your clutch M/C as you can see in the photo.
