I know there are several videos of this process on GM cars over on, go over there and do a search and see if someone has posted one on Toyotas. A video is worth a million words.

    I just did that on my RAV4. I turned the key to ACC. Which was difficult, because that was the problem; I couldn't turn the key. But after I forced it, there is a little lock button underneath the cylinder that i pressed in and the whole assy came out just fine. I ordered a new one, but it may be difficult to get the right thing. Parts stores seem to have the wrong parts. To get to that lock button, you may have to take off the panel beneath the steering wheel.

How to Replace the Ignition in a Toyota Truck

The two primary components in a Toyota truck's ignition system are the actual ignition switch and the lock cylinder, which work with the ignition key. On most current models of the Tundra and Sequoia, you won't need to completely disassemble the entire steering panelicon1.png to access the switch and cylinder. Keep in mind that the exact procedure can vary depending on the year and model of your Toyota truck.

    • 1 Disconnect the truck battery's negative cable by loosening the cable's clamp nut and detaching the cable from the battery post. Set the cable aside somewhere where it can't accidentally touch the battery terminal.
    • 2 Remove the under-dash panel on the left side of the truck by removing its four retaining screws and pulling it off. Detach the hood release cable by lifting the lever, removing the screws and disengaging the cable from the lever handle.
  • Remove the air duct that is below the steering columnicon1.png to access the ignition switch. Unplug the electrical connectors at the rear of the switch, remove the mounting screws with a screwdriver and detach the switch from the lock cylinder housing.
  • 4 Detach the illumination ring by pulling out the plastic pin on the side. Turn the lock cylinder into the Accessory position with the key and insert a small screwdriver into the hole at the bottom of the ignition switch casting. Press the release bottom with this screwdriver as you pull the lock cylinder straight out.
  • 5 Insert the replacement lock cylinder with its own key into the ignition switch casing. Make sure you insert it so the cylinder is in the Accessory position. Replace the illumination ring with its pin.
  • 6 Mount the replacement ignition switch on the housing with its mounting screws and connecticon1.png it to the electrical connectors.
  • 7 Re-install all other components--the air duct, under-dash panel and battery cable--in the reverse order of removal.

    2010 corolla key stuck in ignition

    It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder.I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out.If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key,or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
    Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes,after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
    But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.
    For more troubleshooting on these types of issues,i suggest you to refer the help links mentioned below.Its the accurate solutions mentioned in it.that will help you to narrow the problem:-----

    99 toyota corolla ignition lock

    Shouldn't be holding it. The switch is spring loaded and just signals the chime when the key is in.
    You may have damaged tumblers in the lock cylinder or something wrong with the teeth on the key. Can you try a spare key ?

    Car Ignition key

    If your key is 'twisted'. in the ignition-lock, I am sorry you won't have no choice but to remove the ignition-lock and dismantling it to free the stuck key.

    Before removing the ignition-lock, try spraying a lubricant (WD-40) in the lock, and see it that frees the key.

    The ignition key is stuck in my 2001 Toyota Corolla

    The ignition on Toyota cars sometimes requires you to push the key down into the keyhole while turning it towards the 'LOCK' position.

    If you have trouble moving it to this position, you can try turning the steering wheel at the same time, or jiggling the wheel left and right.

    In case you are still unable to remove the key, you may have a defective ignition key cylinder, and this may need replacement.

    Hope this helps.

    How do you rplace an ignition lock cylinder on a 98 toyota corolla

    You can do this one yourself if you want it does not require removing the steering wheel. just the plastic housing from the steering column.
    remove housing/cover. then look at housing with cylinder lock assem. on bottom about 1.2 inches or so from the end of the lock assembly you will see a very small hole insert metal pin into hole and push in while turning the key in the ignition backwards to accessory positionyou will feel the pin your pushing move in a bit, then you should be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. insert new assembly with key in the same position and turn forward this will install your new assemlby then reassemble your plastic column covers.
