Replacement is necessary. To remove it you need to remove the trim around the switch. All toyota ignition switches have a metal tab that needs to be pushed up and the key turned to remove it. Then it slides out. About half an hour to an hour job depending on your skill level.

Battery is OK. However, nothing happens when I turn the ignition key. Problem had been intermittent until today


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
Could be a dead spot in the starter. Do the warning lights work correctly ?

No start, no noises when key engages the start position.


The large red wire at the starter is to the battery. The smaller wire is hot in the start position only! have someone turn the key to start and then check for voltage. If you have voltage you need a starter. If there is no voltage you either have an open from the ignition switch or a bad switch on the column. 1 last thing. Most cars have a fusible link at the starter. If there is a short somewhere the wire acts like a fuse and blows. You can check that by pulling in the wire or just feeling for a spot with no wire.

2000 Corolla won't start.


See, the starter gets power from the battery it also gets power from the ignition switch. When you turn the key the solenoid closes and supplies power to the starter motor. So if you are hearing a click the solenoid is getting getting a signal from the ignition switch. Check for power from the solenoid to the starter motor. If it lights up that means power is being transferred to the motor and the motor is either bad if it doesn't turn the engine or the engine is locked up.

Starting with key will not ingage the starter


Sounds like your ignition (mechanical) key assembly is bad. Key should turn freely through the full cycle. Off, on, run and start. Your vehicle should have 2 ignition switches, I.e., mechanical and electronic. Sounds like you either have a bad mechanical switch or perhaps even a problem with the steering column itself.

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.

I have a 2000 toyota corolla and the key will only turn to acc. We have tried the other key. The stering wheel is unlocked. We have jiggled the shifter to make sure it is in park.


See if you turn the wheel and try to turn the key at the same time if it releases. We might get a free spot where the key should turn. The lock may be in a bind and pressure on it may release it.
Clean and lubricate the lock cylinder. Electric cleaner to flush the dirt and liquid graphite to lubricate. A substitute for the electric cleaner is a spray of isoprophyl alcohol.
You may also need to tap the assembly for the ignition switch to release the mechanical parts. See if you can get the cover of the steering column off to gain access to the ignition switch assembly.
Check also if the spare does the same, other wise the key may have deformed.

THE STARTER WILL NOT TURN OFF


Sounds like you have a bad starter solenoid. Replace JUST the solenoid...save money....that'll fix your problem.....unless you just want to replace the whole starter assembly!
