    1987 FJ60 Land Cruiser: I'm trying to replace the ignition lock cylinder, and I've removed the old cylinder but now the new one won't go all the way in. Even the old one doesn't go back in so I assume the issue isn't with the cylinder itself but rather something in the column. Key is turned to...

    Ignition Key Question

    I just bought a 2005 Land Cruiser. Great shape with a few minor issues. When I turn the key off and remove it, the display does not turn off. When I reinsert the key, it will turn off.
