THank you for using just answer.

THis is a commonly misworded question, to be sure here are you talking about the electrical switch on the back side of the ignition housing or are you talking about the mechanical key cylinder that your key goes into needs to be replaced?

I am talking about the mechanical key cylinder that your key that starts the car
Expert:  Toyotapro replied 7 years ago.

ok, you need to replace the ignition cylinder here then.

Question for you- what is wrong with the current one?

Can you turn the key at all?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It turns about three-quarters of the way and then stops. It won't turn any further. The key slides easily out at any point.
Expert:  Toyotapro replied 7 years ago.
Ok, if it can turn then this is a good thing. If you remove the plastic covers around the cylinder you will find a small hole in the cylinder outer housing, when you turn the key to the ACC position a lock pin lines up with this hole, use a pick/paper clip/what ever you have to press the pin down in this hole and then slide the old cylinder out, then the new one slides in place and locks in when you turn the key.
