What’s the best-selling car brand in Australia? Here’s a hint: it’s not Ford or Holden.
With close to 3 million vehicles sold during 2017, Toyota is easily Australia’s most popular brand.
Thanks to its 1 million car lead on second-placed Holden, there are decent chances you or someone you know drives a Toyota.
So, who do you go to for help when you need Toyota key replacement in Melbourne?
An auto locksmith, that’s who!
Is your Toyota ignition causing you trouble?
The car ignition system mightn’t be the heart of your car. But without it, you’re stranded!

A good auto locksmith will be able to offer on-site solutions for your ignition problems. Whether it’s broken, jammed or simply not co-operating, we’re the people to call.
Experiencing trouble with your car ignition? Here are some of the potential reasons why.
Damaged key ignition
Ignition chambers contain dozens of small, moving parts. As such, being too rough with your ignition can lead to it wearing out and ongoing key trouble.
An auto locksmith can resolve most cases of a damaged ignition for you.

Sometimes, there might not be anything wrong with your ignition chamber. In fact, the chamber itself could be fine!
So, what’s causing the problem?
You mightn’t be able to see it from the outside, but it’s possible that your ignition chamber has gotten jammed with debris.
Dirt, dust, lint… each of these can clog your ignition chamber and cause problems.
You may not notice it, but your car ignition cylinder might need a professional locksmith to clean out any dirt and other debris that might be causing your key problems.
Extreme hot and cold temperature
Extreme weather conditions can cause damage to your car ignition key.
Temperature changes cause your ignition to expand or contract - while rare, this can sometimes cause the insides of your ignition chamber to warp.
The result is an ignition that won’t accept your keys.
While Melbourne weather may be unpredictable, it’s not quite at that level.
Of course, you’ll still have to watch out for more common causes of ignition trouble with your Toyota.
Key problems? Get your Toyota keys replaced by a professional
Sometimes the problem isn’t with your ignition chamber. It might be a problem with your key itself!
Fortunately for you, getting you back into your Toyota when it’s a key problem is significantly more straightforward than fixing a busted ignition!
Your keys might be bent, causing them to get jammed in your ignition chamber.
Alternatively, it could be that your keys have become brittle after years of rough treatment and have snapped!
The user’s manual and salesperson might have made a point of telling you to “only go to a dealership” for your key problems.
