The connection between the Lock cylinder and the Ignition switch has come apart. There is pin that holds it together where the column tilts to allow for the tilt. The bad thing is the column needs to be completely disassembled to fix it, or replace the column with one from a salvage yard. The pin that falls out is usually still inside the column if you take it apart.

Igniton starter switch, Sounds like either the wiring at the switch or the switch itself. They make a constant ignition contact in either run or start and it sounds like it isn't contacting in run.

My key is stuck in the ignition, my car is running and will not turn off even in park and neutral. what could be wrong


First things first. Locate the battery and disconnect it so your engine will shut off. Then i would recommend taking it to a mechanic to properly diagnose this because with it being a new car, you have the risk of breaking something or setting off the airbags if you arent a professional. But it probably is your igniton switch locked up.

My 1993 toyota camry's automatic door won't lock. when i press the lock button or use the key, it just click back to open. what could theproblem be?


it could be a bad door switch or the key switch in the ignition, it thinks the key is in the ignition so it doesnt let you look the door it unlocks it, may need to replace the ignition or dissable the sensor in the igniton by cliping the wiring .

Ignition


i just had that same prob with mine. My Solution: NEW steering collum / key switch
what was happening was the key would get stuck in the igniton and i had to give it a little tap to get it to relese from the igniton. well, by giving it those taps, it popped a little plastic lever in the collum for the igniton switch. then the car would turn on with the key, but not turn off, i had to do the same thing that you had to do to to turn it off/on.

A steering collum later, and it was fixed
