Key in ignition light


Most likely will just need the ignition switch replaced. This is the electrical portion of the ignition, not the metal cylinder where your key goes. You will need to pull off the steering column plastic clamshell behind the steering wheel to access it. It is attached to the back of the key cylinder. It is not too expensive or hard to replace.

Key trapped in ignition


Could be the ignition lock or switch, but it could be the shifter too.
If the shifter is not completely in park, the key will not go to the lock position.

I have a 1995 camry 220sei auto and the battery runs down every night. have to take off terminal every night or car wont start.car elect cant solve problem


Your vehicle is exhibiting a parasitic draw on the battery. Something such as a light inside the glove compartment is staying on when the keys are taken from the ignition. To deduce the root cause of the problem using a 12 volt test light, disconnect the negative battery terminal and ground test light to battery terminal post and probe the loose cable end. This should be done with the keys removed from the ignition and all known electrical loads off. If the draw exists your test light should illuminate under these conditions. Next go about the car and search for the source of the draw. Once you have identified and eliminated the draw your test light should stay off.

Changed the key ignition in my 2000 gmc jimmy and now the battery light and odometer milage light stays on and drains the battery This all happenens when the truck is turned off. When the truck is running...


The ignition switch(this is the electrical portion) is out of time. It needs to be removed, reindexed(notched teeth on top of switch-rotated a couple spots) and reinstalled. When it is installed correctly, the tell tale lights will not be on, you'll have accessory and the vehicle will start in the crank position. You don't want any lights on when the key is out of the ignition.

I have a 1996 GMC K2500 power staying on to my heater fan


Hardly seems worth changing the lock cylinder, since it is not that easy.
Just be more careful turning the ignition off.
Put in an ignition indicator light on the dash if you have to.
