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.

My key is stuck in the ignition.


Your car has several different ignition positions. They each offer slightly different functionality.
Off: In this position, the engine is off, and so are your electronic accessories (unless the delay has not expired yet). You can still turn on lights (headlights, interior lights, etc.).
ACC: This is the accessory position. Turn the key to ACC if you want to listen to the radio, play a CD or use other accessories without cranking the engine.
On: In this position, all of the electronics should come on. This is also the position that the key will return to after cranking the engine.
Start: Turn the key to this position to crank the engine. Let go of the key when the engine is running and the key will return to the on position.

I use to own a car that had an ignition that was ACC - OFF - ON - START.

Try turning your ignition one position clockwise and see if the radio turns off and the key comes out.

My ignition switch on my pontiac aztek must be manually moved from the start poistion to on. Like the spring does not take it out of start.


You have a bad key cylinder. You need to replace the cylinder. You can find kits on line for your brand of car for a new key cylinder. It will come with instructions on how to assemble the cylinder for the old key

Ford taurus ignition switch


Sounds like the ignition switch is broken. It is further down the steering column on the bottom side. The key switch pushes a piece of plastic to pull or push on the switch. Sometimes it is the this piece that brakes.

Easiest fix it it is the plastic actuator rod is to buy a used steering column and replace everything. You will have to get it re keyed to match you original set. Or if you already got your new key switch re keyed use that.

These pics are from a 1997 column but they are very similar to the 1995.

1996 nissan maxima wont start, windows wont roll and dashboard caution lights and icons not lighting up when i turn the key. the turn signals also arent working but they do with the hazard lights on. car...


I think your ignition switch has quit working, or it has stopped getting power. If you pull the connector apart to the ignition switch and check if there is one wire on the harness side of the connector that has power, it sure looks like a bad ignition switch. One fat wire, about 12 gauge size, going into the switch should be hot at all times. If you have it, pretty obvious that power is not going out of the switch. key on should send power out of the switch to the fuses for the windows and other accessories, and also send power to the dash for the warning lights and gauges.
Power to the switch will be either from one of your fusible links near the battery or from a maxi fuse in the fuse/relay block under the hood. The funny action of the key kind of points to the ignition switch, though. Still, check for power into the switch first.

Turn the key and nothing


Check battery cable connections. There should be a hot wire (hot at all times) to the ignition switch, and when key is turned the switch sends power out. Either the switch has lost the power in, or the switch is bad, not sending power out.
Do the headlights work? When key is turned to on, do the warning lights and gauges come on in the dash? Does the radio or any accessories work when key is turned? If nothing works, you need to check if the ignition switch is getting power from the battery.

Ignition


he ignition switch generally has four positions: off, accessories, on, and start. Some cars have two off positions, off and lock; one turns off the car, and the other allows the key to be removed from the ignition. When the key is turned to the accessories position, certain accessories, such as the radio, are powered; however, accessories that use too much battery power, such as window motors, remain off in order to prevent the car's battery from being drained. The accessories position uses the least amount of battery power when the engine is not running, which is why drive-in movie theaters recommend that the car be left in theaccessories mode during the movie.

The on position turns on all of the car's systems, including systems such as the fuel pump, because this is the position the ignition switch remains in while the car's engine is running. The start position is spring loaded so that the ignition switch will not remain there when the key is released. When the key is inserted into the ignition switch lock cylinder and turned to the start position, the starter engages; when the key is released, it returns to the on position, cutting power to the starter. This is because the engine runs at speeds that the starter cannot match, meaning that the starter gear must be retracted once the engine is running on its own.

Either the ignition switch or the lock cylinder may fail in a car, but both circumstances have very different symptoms. When the ignition switch fails, generally the electrical wiring or the plastic housing develops problems. The car may not turn on and/or start when this happens. Also, the spring-loaded start position could malfunction, in which case the starter will not engage unless the key is manually turned back to the on position.

When the lock cylinder malfunctions, however, the operation of the key itself will become problematic. If the tumblers become stripped, the lock cylinder may be able to turn with any key, or you may be able to remove the key when the car is on. If the tumblers begin to shift, the lock cylinder may not turn. Sometimes the key can be wiggled until the lock cylinder turns, but it is important to remember that this is only a temporary fix.

Replacing an ignition switch can be tricky business, particularly in newer cars, because of the anti-theft devices used in cars. Once the ignition switch is separated from the back of the lock cylinder, the car can be started with a screwdriver, making it vital that this switch be difficult to get to. It is important to consult a shop manual before attempting this kind of repair, as the anti-theft devices may require special tools; attempting to remove an ignition switch without the proper tools can render the car inoperable.

The key is in the ignition and turned to the accessory poistion. The key will turn to run and the start position but the car will not start. The key will not return to the off postion and cannot be removed...


The shifter linkage being loose could cause this problem. Try to shift the car into neutral with the key turned to on, and then try to to start it. The car may start in N, if this is the case the adjustment is on the side of the transmission.
