Default My 93 camry wouldn't start

Hello all,
Today, my 93 camry just refused to start. When I insert the key, it
turn only once to unlock the steering and after that, it doesn't turn
anymore. I called a car electrician to look at and he said the key has
worn out. Could this be true? Thanks

Do you have a spare key you could try? and does the existing key LOOK
worn?

Do you have several pounds of keys on the key ring? That will wear the lock
cylinder out after 13 years for sure.

NOrmally the lock cylinder wears out first, not the key. Does the key
still work in the doors.

Just for the heck of it, go to a locksmith shop and tell them what is
happening and ask them to copy your key (if it's the only one you
have). It'll be $4 or so, but if it works.

Also, ask them if it doesn't work, what they might suggest.

I pulled the ignition cylinder out of a Datsun long ago and took it
into the locksmith for repair. I think it was $15....of course that was
1980-something.

===============
I had the dealer re create the original pattern from the original key
code.
Didn't even look like the same key due to wear in the older key.
