I recommend that you use WD-40. I have found that it works the best.

It sounds like your ignition lock cylinder has a problem. These can be replaced and keyed to match you present key by a locksmith. Call a locksmith for a estimate.

SOURCE: locked steering wheel

Something wrong with your Ignition key barrel,
Ignition key barrel jam in place.
or
Could be your anti-Theft System failed (including, but not limited) fuses, wirings, etc. If you have one.
or
So check the fuse boxes (one in the cabin & the other in the engine compartment).
To see if there is any burned fuses.

See Fuse Boxes:

See in the plastic cover, a plastic fuse puller ( use it to pull the fuses) once a time & check NOT burn.


If locked in place; do these steps:
1 - Juggle it several times in a very soft & slow burst.

2 - Juggle (Shake) the steering wheel RH & LH,
several times in a very gentle & slow.

3 – Try to remove the ignition switch

4 – Search the internet Google, www.about.com, www.youtube.com/video
For clues to help you sort out your problems.

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. The key is stuck in the lock position and won't turn, do I need a new ignition?


Try turning the steering wheel, fairly firmly, while trying the key. Sometimes a significant preload happens when the power assist is helping the wheel positioning, just prior to shutdown.

My key wont turn in the ingnition of my 1998 toyota avalon


Hi, the problem you could be having is with the steering lock, if this has locked in a funny position it can be hard to get it to unlock.

what you need to do is when you put the key in try turning the steering wheel left and right as far as it will go whilst turning the key to on position, now its going to be hard to move so you will need to use some force turning the wheel try turning it left whilst turning the key forwards and backwards and the same turning right, once the steering wheel has moved this should allow the key to turn and you will be able to start you car.

let me know if it fails to work then i can assist you further ok

plz rate this solution as i have got a whole page of posts that have gone unrated, thanks

2000 Toyota Solara key locks sticking


Late model Toyota's have had a significant amount of key and lock problems. Find a locksmith that specializes in automotive. Your key may need to be "decoded" (new key cut to factory specs) or new door lock or both.
