Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
If I disconnect the battery, then I can turn the key to "off" and remove it. Could it be a fuse?
Sometimes you have a solinoid in the barrel for unlocking the transmission or shifter and so on you might have a short to the solinoid leaving it on so you cant turn switch off or the oposite leaving it off could be no power or direct power to solonoid so check fuses and wires under dash is there a car starter installed this to could cause bad connections

This car has drillable shear pin screws on the bottom of the lock yoke you must drill these out.
then release the clip to the cylinder. you must get a new set of break-off shear pin head screws from the dealer to finish the job.
