    I just bought a 2001 Toyota Corrola and had the same problem. I know it sounds simplistic but the previous owner gave me 2 keys: 1 was worn and the other new. It did not have this problem initially so I don't think the owner knew about it. he gave me a new key and after a restless sleep I went down to see if I had stuck key problem with newer key. I would try to use a newer key made from the old one before trying anything. Then move on to other solutions.

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.

I have a 1998 chrysler convertible sebring. My ignition is on the steering column. My question which is the off position. It's making me crazy. Son thinks I'm leaving in acc. Help please


most ignition switches have the following positions in sequence
off, accessories, run start
you insert/ remove the key when the switch is in the off position
acc position allows radio , stereo phone etc
run is where the engine is running, start is the last position and is where the engine starts and runs
normally you have to move it back to the off or the key will not lock the steering and will not come out of the switch

Place key in ign. And turns with no clicks btw off acc and start. When you turn off, goes past off to acc no clicks


Hello Ron, If your car does not crank when you turn the key, it sounds as if you have problems with the ignition switch . Or the actuating rod is disconnected.

I am hooking up an alarm with remote start on my Hilux 22r. I need to know which wires do what on the back of the key start switch so I can tap into them. I need acc, on and start


ACC is on when switch is in ACC position - usually the first stop.
Neither ON or START is active.
ON is the ignition - usually the 2nd position.
START is active when u push and hold the switch past ON. ON will also be active.

Try puffing some powder graphite into the key slot and inserting and removing the key several times. The tumbler pins get dry and jam in the holes and will not move so the graphite is the recommended lubricant for locks. Be careful as it leaves black residue that has to be cleaned with a wet clean rag.

Car does start


I would start with the key switch and checking the major fuses in the engine compartment. It sounds like the key switch is not moving past Acc or it does not have power for the major circuits.

the ignition switch is an electrical part. The lock cylinder is whre the key goes and it activates the ignition switch. If you pulled the lock cylinder out, you could operate the car with a screwdriver.
Either you have damaged the ignition switch where the lock cylinder goes into it, or the lock cylinder is damaged where it fits into the ignition switch.

Section 11-05: Steering Column Switches 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Ignition Switch The ignition switch (11572), which is mounted on the steering actuator housing (3F723), operates in the following manner:
  • The ignition switch is cycled through rotation of the ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) through a pin which is part of the ignition switch.
  • The ignition switch lock cylinder also controls the mechanism which provides a positive lock for the transaxle linkage and the steering system.
  • The locking mechanism is located in the steering column housing.
The ignition switch lock cylinder positions are:
  • ACC
  • LOCK
  • OFF
  • RUN
  • START
The key can be removed from the ignition switch lock cylinder with the column-shift transaxle only when the shift lever is in PARK position and the key is in LOCK position.
  • The ACC position operates while the steering and transaxle remain locked.
  • The engine shuts off when the key is turned to the OFF position without locking the steering or transaxle.
Blade Type
The ignition switch has blade-type terminals that engage with one multiple connector. The multiple connector is secured to the ignition switch by an integral connector fastener.

Ignition switch won't turn on!


In the same boat and Saturn just plain sucks. Glad they are shutting their doors. You ignition lock cylinder is bad. Good thing is that its stupid simple to fix bad news is the ignition has to be the ACC position to pull it out. Another real smart move these idiots decided to do. If you have a bad ignition lock you have a 50-50 chance it will seize in the freakin lock position making it impossible to get it to the ACC position. Anyway here is the link to a utude exact video on how to pull it out in 2 minutes to replace if your lucky and can get it to the ACC position.
