Where the ignition switch lock release of Toyota Avalon 1998 located


It is inside of the steering column at the base of the lock cylinder where you insert your key. They are meant to be an anti theft device and not easy to get around.

I have a 2000 toyota corolla and the key will only turn to acc. We have tried the other key. The stering wheel is unlocked. We have jiggled the shifter to make sure it is in park.


See if you turn the wheel and try to turn the key at the same time if it releases. We might get a free spot where the key should turn. The lock may be in a bind and pressure on it may release it.
Clean and lubricate the lock cylinder. Electric cleaner to flush the dirt and liquid graphite to lubricate. A substitute for the electric cleaner is a spray of isoprophyl alcohol.
You may also need to tap the assembly for the ignition switch to release the mechanical parts. See if you can get the cover of the steering column off to gain access to the ignition switch assembly.
Check also if the spare does the same, other wise the key may have deformed.

There is a pin that you have to push in on the bottom of the lock cylinder housing.It is recessed in a hole.You have to turn the key to acc or on to get it to push in.Once you push it in you can pull the key and lock cylinder out.
