The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

SOURCE: steering column locked
Turn the steering wheel (it may take a lot of force) a bit either way while trying to turn the key. It's probably just that the wheel's in the wrong position.

I had the same problem , I tried all sorts of jiggling didn't work , a mate came over and rocked the steering wheel left to right, while trying to turn the key ( But) while trying to turn the key, keep pulling the key out of the lock by small increments . This worked for us . when it happened to ours it was like the key was going in too far . Hope that helps . Kev

It happened to me. It is a common problem in older Camrys and Hondas. The cars are so reliable that the key gets worn down after all these years. Get a the dealership to order a new key in. The can use the cars ID number. The old key can't disengage the steering wheel locking mechanism in order to start the car.
