Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
1997 Camry. Key glitches in the switch and will not turn. Sometimes it will turn if I put in the key and tap it with the back end of a flashlight all around. But now, even that doesn't work. The dealership cut us a new key a couple of months ago (we had it towed in). And now the new key has done the same thing.
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?

You likely have a locking steering wheel. Before turning the key, turn the steering wheel a little bit first. It works on my truck. Good luck
