    Hey all,

    My friend has a 2000 tacoma and I'm going to replace his ignition tumbler for him.

    The key wont even enter the tumbler unless you jiggle it in. And once it in you have to jiggle it more to get it passed ACC.

    Is there a walkthrough for this? I know every car is different so I figured I'd check here for tips/tricks first.


    Also you guys have any recomendation for where to pick one up, or should i just do autozone: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/pa...3i?filterByKeyWord=ignition&fromString=search

    Mark this is a common issue among Tacomas ,googling it up should yield answers. When this happened to me a local mobile locksmith charged me 20bucks to fix . He did it within 10mins .
