Wont start, or wont crank>????????

did you follow all the steps in the FSM for this?
and heed the warnings?
did you shut down the AIR bags first. (battery pull and the 90 second rule) and keep battery pulled whole time?
air bags can kill, and ign. key fiddling is #1 here.
i bet you did not pull the battery as the FSM directs and you blew the fuses. or worse.
do you have the IMMO , immoblizer option, is the IMMO dash lamp
telling you, its ACTIVE, that is, IMMOBILized? bingo
the IMMO lamp tells you , im ok, at key on, and then tells you Im off or on. the operators guide covers this lamp, lost your guide?

the IMMO cuts fuel , not cranking in most cars.
Does the CEL glow key on, if not the ECU is dead, blown fuse #1 reason.

SOURCE: 1999 Toyota Camary, steering wheel locked

It happened to me. It is a common problem in older Camrys and Hondas. The cars are so reliable that the key gets worn down after all these years. Get a the dealership to order a new key in. The can use the cars ID number. The old key can't disengage the steering wheel locking mechanism in order to start the car.

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: Key won't turn in ignition, 2001 Toyota 4Runner

I have the same problem. I put some graphite down the key hole and pushed it around in there and it loosened it up a bit to the point I could turn the ignition. If you have a replacement key, start using that. It should help as well.Teeth on old key may be wearing down. Lastly, I keep a screwdriver in the car to whack against key when it's in the ignition if it's stuck. A few taps on the key will always unlock the ignition.

Or, go but a new ignition and key set....

I want to replace ignition lock cylinder on my 1998 Toyota 4Runner do I need special tools to do it? or what are the steps to do it? thanks.


You have to remove the plastic cover underneath of the steering wheel, after that the metal shield behind the plastic cover. When you remove the shield you will get access to the ignition lock cylinder. Disconnect the wire harness, remove the cylinder, install a new cylinder. Connect the wire harness, install the shield, install the plastic cover.

PS: Before start write down the code for your stereo (if you have one), disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Be careful when you work around the air bags.

The key wont turn.


Thanks for the info. I had the same problem with my mine. The problem was the lock cylinder itself was worn out. To remove it on my '98 4Runner, I removed the four 10mm bolts in the lower panel underneath the steering wheel, and then popped out the small panel surrounding the ignition switch itself. Take off the little white ring that surrounds the keyhole light, and the other ring just slips off. Careful not to lose the little white locking tab if it falls out when you remove the rings. Leave that key light assembly connected. Put in the key, and turn it to "ACC". Look underneath the silver lock cylinder itself and find a small hole. Push a pen or other small object into the hole to release the cylinder from the switch. It pulls straight out. Reverse the steps to install your new lock cylinder. Piece of cake, but much easier if you order a new one and take a good look at it before you start!
