Hello there,

You have a worn ignition barrel.

You'll need to have the barrel and key blade replaced.

If you can get the key to work again, then drive to your nearest Toyota dealer.

That's your best option for repair.

If you have a second key, it nay have less wear, and get you out of trouble for now.

Have done many barrels and keys over my years.
