My toyota corolla 1990 has that little hole that you can use to plug in chargers and put out cigarettes (no i dont smoke). How do you turn that on? Please help!
The part # is 8472712020 and everywhere I've checked (short picking one from a salvage yard) say they don't have it and it's no longer available. Is there a clearinghouse or something like it that might offer OEM parts that the dealership no longer shelf?

Or is there a decent work-around other than depressing the by-pass button located near the console?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in responding to my request.

With the key out of the key cylinder the steering wheel isn't locked but when I insert the key and move it to accessory, it locks. Also the shifter stays locked continuously. The car is an automatic. The car is acting just the opposite of what it should. Is the cylinder damaged that attaches to the steering column?
