Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
I have a 2000 Camry with 110,000. The car is great but recently the key started to stick in the ignition. I can always get it out and was told the problem was lubrication and so I did that but it started to stick again. Then I was told the problem was the key and so I had a new key made from the VIN number but it has started to stick again. I can get it out by pulling up and stopping and putting it in park and just keep repeating until the key comes out. Just today the auto door locks quit working and the headlights used to shut off automatically when the car was shut off - now they don't. Are all of these problems related? What do I do next?
I would say your ignition cylinder is worn out. get it replaced now, while the key still works. If you wait until it stops working all together, they will charge double because it will have to be cut off of the steering column instead of easily sliding it out. I wouldnt think the lights and door locks are related, just a bad coincedence.
