Toyota key won't turn?

If you have a Toyota and the key suddenly stops turning you may have a broken wafer. It is very common to have a broken or bent wafer in this style ignition. Toyota invented these special wafers called "split wafers". They were to prevent picking and impressioning techniques from car thieves. It turns out that it's another faulty design by this auto maker. Similar to the Honda high security lock, this Toyota style ignition needs to be replaced and serviced. We can provide this service if you encounter this particular problem.

What are my other options?

You're only other option is to tow your vehicle to the dealership. Keep in mind that they will not rebuild any lock. The dealer will replace the entire lock, plus labor. This is a lengthy time process and costs about 3x more.
