SOURCE: ignition switch or ignition cylinder??

Remove the cylinder bench test to see if it turns un obstructed, if so check orientation of cam on cylinder and also check if ignition switch will allow you to turn using screwdriver Do not operate car using screw driver steering can and will lock up on you.
also try a different key. While you bench test cylinder you can clean and lube it using lube sold specifically for locks do not use just any oil it will trap dirt

Try spraying WD 40 into the ignition as possible. Let sit a second.. Then try working the key. It should come out. Then work the key in and out and turn on and off; a few minutes. This is to loosen the ignition up. I had the same problem, once with my car key. The key came right out.

I have the same problem. I put some graphite down the key hole and pushed it around in there and it loosened it up a bit to the point I could turn the ignition. If you have a replacement key, start using that. It should help as well.Teeth on old key may be wearing down. Lastly, I keep a screwdriver in the car to whack against key when it's in the ignition if it's stuck. A few taps on the key will always unlock the ignition.

Or, go but a new ignition and key set....

Hello.

We would suggest that you look at the wiring connector under the bed, that feeds the taillamps.

You will probably find a coroded wire in the connector. If the 3rd brake lamp works, all of the fuses and switches are good.

How do you remove the a bad ignition switch that only turns to the acc?


not really a solution but a temp fix, I had the same problem just this past Friday was out shopping and went to leave and the key would only go to acc.
after trying for about 5 min I took my 2008 4 runner key and inserted it an then when I went back to my 2000 tundra key it turned right over. thinking that 1 of the tumblers was stuck. going to try shooting a little wd40 In there to maybe lubricate it a little. I haven't had it do it since but might save you some work and money! hope this helps!

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.

Key wont move ignition switch past ACC to start position. Purchased new key and still doesn't work.


The actual ignition switch, the electrical switch which the key cylinder turns, is probably bad. It is made of plastic and does eventually wear out. Have that part checked out.

Ignition key cylinder


You have to have the ignition lock exposed, take the covers off above and below the lock body that holds the cylinder.
Insert the key fully into the keyway, and turn it to ACC. On the ignition lock body, press on the "stop pin", that pokes out of the lack body, above where the cylinder is housed. Press on the "stop-pin", and extract the cylinder. If the key can not be turn ed to ACC, the cylinder will not come out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please let me know if this solves your problem.
