It's not an battery issue.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 2 years ago

Ok, the key can not be turned from the lock position or pulled out? Could be a key interlock problem, what happens if you remove the voltage to the interlock by disconnecting the negative battery terminal?
