Carefully pull the upper trim panel from the dash.

  • With the key in the existing cylinder, turn it to the accessory position.
  • There is a small button on the bottom of the cylinder housing, Push it in with a small screwdriver, the pull the key and cylinder out.
  • Insert the new key in the new cylinder and slide it into the opening.
It is recommended that you disconnect power to the battery before performing this operation, but I successfully removed and installed a new one without doing so.

My ignition switch is stuck in lock..I have key. I'm trying to replace it. Its on a 97 4runner sr5 please help!


You need a punch and hammer to back off the security bolts that hold the lock cylinder to the column. The heads of the bolts twist off at the factory leaving a smooth head. You have to back them out with a sharp point canter punch and a hammer.

Replace ignition barrel with a snapped metal intrument in it


you can try to remove said instrument with plyers, easiest way for me to fix a car like that is to replace the whole dang steering column.

4runner ignition stuck. need to know how to remove it


If you're talking about the ignition lock/key cylinder in the column. It's going to be quite difficult due to the fact there is a rod stopping the cylinder from coming out unless it is pushed and has to be pushed when the key is on/turned to the ACC position. Now I have seen in a very few cases of the ignition switch (the electrical part) being locked up. Here are a couple of pictures but at this point like Dennis said I need more information in order to help better.

I want to replace ignition lock cylinder on my 1998 Toyota 4Runner do I need special tools to do it? or what are the steps to do it? thanks.


You have to remove the plastic cover underneath of the steering wheel, after that the metal shield behind the plastic cover. When you remove the shield you will get access to the ignition lock cylinder. Disconnect the wire harness, remove the cylinder, install a new cylinder. Connect the wire harness, install the shield, install the plastic cover.

PS: Before start write down the code for your stereo (if you have one), disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Be careful when you work around the air bags.
