Having problems with your 1996 Toyota RAV4 ?
Key won't turn in 1996 RAV4
\015 Our key, which has worked for many years, has been getting worse about turning the ignition out of "lock". Once past "lock", it is fine, and all systems are go. Have tried graphite, which didn't seem to help much. I now have to jiggle and pull and reinsert for 1-5 minutes to get it to turn.\015
Go to a real locksmith and have them cut you a new key. They will cut it from the original specifications using your VIN number This is not the same as the copy a key grinders, but a way to cut it to the original shape. Take the RAV4 so they can get the VIN number and try it out. I can't say for where you live, but here is less than $10.
