    \r\n Did you try wiggling the steering wheel back and forth lightly while turning the key to take any pressure off the lock?\r\n

    \r\n Is it possible the key is worn out? Key code is on the pass. door tumbler. Just a thought. If lubricant does not help, you could buy a used ignition tumble with key or try having a new key cut for your existing tumbler.\r\n

    \r\n Replacing the steering column was probably not necessary. Try to find a mechanic to come over to look at it or take it to a Toyota shop if you can\'t fix it.
