This could be a ignition switch issue -- the contacts might not be disengaging when the key is in the off position,, or maybe it is making contact ( as if in the accessory position ). this could drain the battery if there are accessories left on in the car. the celica is known to have many issues with the ignition switch -- if you want it fixed right I would recommend taking the car to a automotive locksmith and have them replace the ignition switch with a new one.

My key is stuck in the ignition.


Your car has several different ignition positions. They each offer slightly different functionality.
Off: In this position, the engine is off, and so are your electronic accessories (unless the delay has not expired yet). You can still turn on lights (headlights, interior lights, etc.).
ACC: This is the accessory position. Turn the key to ACC if you want to listen to the radio, play a CD or use other accessories without cranking the engine.
On: In this position, all of the electronics should come on. This is also the position that the key will return to after cranking the engine.
Start: Turn the key to this position to crank the engine. Let go of the key when the engine is running and the key will return to the on position.

I use to own a car that had an ignition that was ACC - OFF - ON - START.

Try turning your ignition one position clockwise and see if the radio turns off and the key comes out.

My 88 full size Bronco Windows roll up and down without a key stereo plays and all but it's been killing my battery any ideas on fixing this worried it's gonna burn up a cell in my battery or worse.


Sounds like your ignition switch is not cutting off the power when you shut it off. I had a van with a similair problem, you could remove the key in any position and several times I removed the keys in the accessory position and drained the battery.

Can worn out ignition switch cause the battery to drain down when car is off and setting for 2 or 3 days?


Yes the faulty ignition switch can definitely drain the battery.Because actually the car is not got completely off.You inserted the key in the ignition switch and turned it to off.But because the ignition switch is faulty the car did not turned off.It remained ON.The other possibility is that the ignition switch is got internally short and causing this problem.There are many other possibilities too for this battery getting drained when car is off.But as per your question which you asked,yes.If the ignition switch is faulty then car battery gets drained even when the car is off. ---------- Get the ignition switch checked by meter and confirm the fault. --------- Thanks.Helpmech.

I don't have the door key to my 1997 Nissan Maxima and my remotes are no longer working at all, how can I bypass the alarm going off so I can drive the car? The anti theft system won't allow it to start


after the alarm stops going off... do not touch anything... wait 10 minutes or longer... if you are in the car with the doors closed, and the alarm has run through it's cycle and is no longer sounding, do not touch the locks or open the door you will set off the alarm again each time you do this.... attempt to start the vehicle, it will probably just turn on but wont crank or start. this is the immobilizer. It thinks you are tying to steal the car. Since the 97 does not have a key with a chip in it, it will eventually start. However, only after I waited almost 20 minutes without touching anything except to put the key in the ignition and try to start the car withdrawing the key completely each time. This has only happened to me twice because I just don't lock the car anymore. I keep nothing of value in it ever. Each time I got the car to start after waiting and apparently it will start after some time if you push to roll down the driver side window... Haven't been able to find any other mention of this on the internet, somehow this was the trick to getting the car to start again after my remote quit working, and like you i only have a worn down ignition key. It worked for me with all doors except for the drivers side closed. I just kept trying to insert the key and start it, while rolling the drivers side window up and down. Eventually it started after like 30 minutes and after one press to roll down the drivers side window.

2002 Nissan Altima windows roll down by themselves w/no key in


You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
