I have a 2000 Toyota Tacoma and the ignition switch will not turn to the off position. What do I need to check?


Lillian, it could be a shifter/interlock problem, take out of park then forcefully put back in park and try key. Take into a good Tech., have them diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

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.

I have a 2000 4wd tacoma with manual locking hubs and the 4wd does not seem to be engaging after locking the hubs and shifting the lever into 4 hi or 4 low


Sounds like one of your hubs is sticking and not engaging. You can check them by engaging the hubs and the transfer case and jacking up each front wheel independently if it doesn't spin your good, if it does you found your problem. As far as fixing a hub goes, it may be just dry and need some grease, or there are some very good aftermarket hubs available from Warn.
Hope this helps
