Was your steering column turned, or possibly wedged against a curb or other obstacle? At times when that column is locked or wedged, you can't turn the ignition key. Just forcefully turn your steering wheel one way or the other & hold it there, the ignition assembly should unlock, and you should be able to turn the key.

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. The key is stuck in the lock position and won't turn, do I need a new ignition?


Try turning the steering wheel, fairly firmly, while trying the key. Sometimes a significant preload happens when the power assist is helping the wheel positioning, just prior to shutdown.

I have a 2000 toyota corolla and the key will only turn to acc. We have tried the other key. The stering wheel is unlocked. We have jiggled the shifter to make sure it is in park.


See if you turn the wheel and try to turn the key at the same time if it releases. We might get a free spot where the key should turn. The lock may be in a bind and pressure on it may release it.
Clean and lubricate the lock cylinder. Electric cleaner to flush the dirt and liquid graphite to lubricate. A substitute for the electric cleaner is a spray of isoprophyl alcohol.
You may also need to tap the assembly for the ignition switch to release the mechanical parts. See if you can get the cover of the steering column off to gain access to the ignition switch assembly.
Check also if the spare does the same, other wise the key may have deformed.

Trouble replacing ignition switch.


Normally we would replace the lock cylinder and housing at the dealer.....but if it were my car I'd uses a punch and hammer to slam that pin in and remove the cylinder. It's worth a try first before having to replace the entire housing.

Very Very Common Do You Have A lot Of Keys On Your Key Ring? Excess Weight Will Cause Premature Ignition Wear. Try Spraying wd-40 On The Key And Inserting Over And Over Then Spray Again It Could Help Your Problem.
