Ignition Switch Problem 99 Corolla

I cannot turn the key past the first position, (the position that only turns the radio on) so I cannot start my 99 Corolla. I do not know what parts i might need or what this could possibly be. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Try this, 1. Put the car in Neutral, Try turning the Steering wheel (the lock may be on).
2.Put it in Park try turning the steering wheel.
3.Put it in Neutral again try turning the wheel to free up your steering lock that prevents ignition from starting.
4. Pull the Key out repeat all of the above.
Good Luck.

Sounds like you may have possibly TWO problems here. The ignition key not turning past the run position or even to the run position is most likely a lock cylinder issue and may be fixed by replacing the ignition lock cylinder, As for the power being killed when turning the ignition to the start position, that sounds like a defective ignition switch. these items are two seperate parts. The reason for the turn signal issue may be related to the ignition switch fault.
Hope this helps.

99 vw passat replaced battery now car wont start


Turn your key in the ignition to on position and Check to see if your radio and lights work. If everything is turning on then most likely the anti-theft system was activated when removing the old battery. Look for some kind kill switch underneath your steering wheel

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
