SOURCE: How do you rplace an ignition lock cylinder on a 98 toyota corolla

You can do this one yourself if you want it does not require removing the steering wheel. just the plastic housing from the steering column.
remove housing/cover. then look at housing with cylinder lock assem. on bottom about 1.2 inches or so from the end of the lock assembly you will see a very small hole insert metal pin into hole and push in while turning the key in the ignition backwards to accessory positionyou will feel the pin your pushing move in a bit, then you should be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. insert new assembly with key in the same position and turn forward this will install your new assemlby then reassemble your plastic column covers.

SOURCE: Need to replace the 1995 toyota corolla ignition lock cylinder

You need to pull the plastic covers from above and below the steering wheel off. Then put your key in the ignition and turn it to the acc position, then there is a small button either on the top or bottom of the tumbler assembly, it will be inset and you will need a small pointy screwdriver or something to reach it. When you push the button the ignition assembly and the key will come out together

Have you tried taking the pressure off the steering lock by turning the wheel a little? It should move slightly in one direction or the other.

Key will insert but it is in lock position and will not turn over into any other position so I cant start the car. Toyota Corolla 2005, is there a way to lock it somehow?


I know it sounds a bit silly, but have you tried jiggling the key? ... that MIGHT help (it worked in my 95 Corolla when the same issue happened). If you have another key available (one that is not used as much) that could work too ... sometimes the key itself wears down, so the key does not fully depress all of the locking cylinders in the ignition. In other words, if the key is used a lot, it might be too worn out to work right, in which case you can get a new key and it should work just fine (this is what had happened in my 95 corolla)
If this is not working, and even with a less worn out key, the key is still locked in the "Lock" position, try turning the steering wheel back and forth a bit as you are turning the key. There is a safety mechanism in Toyotas that prevents the car from being used without the key (prevent hot-wiring) ... If the key is out of the ignition, and you turn the wheel, it locks up the ignition switch and the steering wheel of the car. Sometimes this mechanism gets stuck as well, and keeps you from being able to start your car. Moving the steering wheel back and forth as much as it will allow (usually only a couple of inches) should help to unlock your ignition and get you on your way.
Finally ... the locking mechanism of the ignition switch (what I was talking about in the last paragraph) sometimes breaks, and causes your car to remain locked, no matter what you do. In this case, you will need to go to a mechanic and replace the key / lock unit. It is not terribly expensive to have this done, but it means replacing all of your keys and spares ... DON'T FORGET TO REPLACE THE SPARES, TOO if you are going to go this route.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
  3. Using a 1?8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column. Fig. 1: Using the key, turn the ignition lock cylinder to the RUN position, then depress the retaining pin using a wire pin or small drift 86878085.gif
    To install:
  4. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
  5. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

  5. Using a 1?8 in. (3mm) diameter drill, carefully drill out the retaining pin, being careful not to drill deeper than 1?2 in. (13mm).
  6. Place a suitable chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap, then, using a suitable hammer, strike the chisel with sharp blows to break the cap away from the lock cylinder.
  7. Using a 3?8 in. (10mm) diameter drill, carefully drill down the middle of the ignition key slot approximately 1 3?4 in. (44mm) until the lock cylinder breaks loose from its breakaway base. Remove the lock cylinder and drill shavings from the lock cylinder housing.
  8. Remove the retainer, washer, ignition switch and actuator. Thoroughly clean all the drill shavings from the casting.
  9. Inspect the lock cylinder housing for damage from the removal operation. To install:
  10. Replace the lock cylinder housing if it was damaged.
  11. Install the actuator and ignition switch.
  12. Install the trim and electrical parts.

Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring Convertible and Breeze CAUTION
The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the steering column. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bags, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disarm the air bag system, as described in Scetion 6.
  2. Remove the upper steering column shroud.
  3. Pull down the lower steering column shroud enough to access the lock cylinder retaining tab.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  5. Insert a small prying tool into the tab access hole and depress the tab. Fig. 1: Depress the retaining tab and remove the lock cylinder 90908g36.gif

  6. Pull the ignition lock cylinder from the steering column. To install:
  7. With the ignition key in the lock cylinder, turn the key to the RUN position. Depress the lock cylinder retaining tab. Fig. 2: The shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder lines up to the socket at the end of the lock cylinder housing 90908g37.gif

  8. The shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder lines up to the socket at the end of the lock cylinder housing. The socket must be in the RUN position for the socket and lock cylinder to line up.
  9. Line up the lock cylinder to the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Insert the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the housing.
  10. Lightly pull on the ignition lock to make sure it has engaged the retaining tab.
  11. Turn the key to the OFF position. Remove the ignition key.
  12. Install the steering column covers.
