Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
The key stuck in the ignition and the ignition hard to turn are both signs that the ignition lock cylinders tumblers are damaged from wear and the reason for both issue. The tumbler needs to be replaced with one that you build to fit your key cut code.
It may take me 1-2-3-etc... responses to get the information I need resulting in giving you the answer you need. I'm not there to see, smell, feel, or hear so I need good information/explanations to return a good answer. My normal hours online are 3pm-3am. There are 2 services your receiving 1: from Just Answer whom has already collected the deposit/question value 2: from me (not an employee of the website & I have no control over anything except what I type.) You will be asked to RATE THE SERVICE, your rating me, my response, not the website, rating has no effect on your payment, and it DOES NOT close the post. A rating IS REQUIRED, if you can't complete the required rating today, let me know why so I can get you exactly what's needed.
