1995 toyota corolla: can't turn the ignition on

I can not turn on the ignition key. The key does not move. I tried moving steering and key at the same time for half an hour but to no avail. Is it the lock problem?

It could be a calaberation of both of those solutions, if you go to a locksmith the chances are that he/she wil fix both the key barrel and the key itself which usually doesnt cost that much

I'm not an expert, and I know you've probably handled this already, but!

When this happened to me, I had a new key made from my old, non-working key, and it's been working fine since. Could be just an old key with worn-out "bits."

Hi how are you doing? yes it sounds like the lock cylnder has failed. the tumblers in the lock cylnder have either broke or are worn out.if you can not turn the key then you will have to call a locksmith to remove the lock cylnder.

Ignition key will not turn


Try locking the steering wheel and then moving it back and forth while trying to turn the key. This usually works, but the reason it is doing that is because you either need a new key, or you need to get a new key ignition. Start by replacing the key first, it is cheaper and is a much easier fix.

The ignition key is stuck in my 2001 Toyota Corolla


The ignition on Toyota cars sometimes requires you to push the key down into the keyhole while turning it towards the 'LOCK' position.

If you have trouble moving it to this position, you can try turning the steering wheel at the same time, or jiggling the wheel left and right.

In case you are still unable to remove the key, you may have a defective ignition key cylinder, and this may need replacement.

Hope this helps.
