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

Ignition stuck in lock position


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.

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.
