Take a small stiff wire (paperclips sometimes work) and make a slight hook in one end....you may be able to work it past the broken piece in the cylinder and hook it and pull it out...it may take awhile, but it ususally works

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.

When my 1988 toyota camry sits for a day or two without driving, the first initial start does not fire-up as I turn the key. I have to hold the key in the start position and the car will eventually start


All cars require a little priming. Try this, turn the key on, let it sit for about 30 seconds then try and start your car. When you first turn the key, the fuel pump will begin pushing fuel. My Mustang does the same thing when its been cold. Of course, in Tucson it does not get cold very often.

Key won't turn on ignition switch


1997 Toyota Camry Key Wont turn, Ignition Lock problem -1997 toyota camry FIXED!!! I see a lot of Douches with a capital D trying to charge people to fix this extremely common issue with this Camry ignition cylinder. OK pull the plastic guard off encasing the steering column. Get a phillips head screwdriver and remove the 2 screws holding the little off-white connector at the rear of the module(it has the wires to the ignition running to it). Get a pair of pliers or a small crescent wrench and while trying to turn the key use the wrench to turn the little rod sticking out of the back of the module. Make sure your turning it WITH the direction the key is trying to turn it. It should immediate be freed. Voila IT WORKS! AND THATS WHY PEOPLE DONT TRUST MECHANICS! HOW CAN YOU CHARGE SOMEONE FOR THAT INFO?
