i didn't get a fresh key as i didn't know what one is the original lock as i have tow different keys.
i wanted to do some clean up on my dash and replace some screws so i thought ill just have a look at removing the barrel and the switch and take it to locksmiths and see what they can do.
i did get new cut based on my old one but didn't work. 
i need to find the best way to remove the two bolts from the photo and that should free the barrel.
also im going to replace some dash lights while i have everything out and but some plastic that where broken, the previous owner really didn't care and just used bigger or smaller screws even used glue  so stupid

Yes a copy of a worn key was wishful thinking, at least a cheap option.
 
As for dash lights, funny you should mention. last night my son compared 2 sets of LEDs from SuperbrightLEDs in the US into the 4 main lights that illuminate speedo and tacho. The tests took a minute or 2 each and both types were pretty good but we preferred 194-W-6V for no hotspotting, nor too bright, nice. Cheap and arrived in under 2 weeks.
Can recommend highly if you have the cluster out.

Just want to fix the dam ignition

Did you get the lock codes off the door locks?

So neither key works in the drivers door lock? Sounds like it has been changed out at some stage.
 
I'd look at the passenger door lock first.
 
Neither key works properly in the ignition?

Once you know what to it’s not hard but just took time till I found out how to do it.

Hopefully some one can help identify the codes

The Americans say that the code usually starts with P and has 4 numbers. Is the letter correct?

Maybe ask Toyota if the code is correct?

im on SuperbrightLED web now and i feel like changing few lights to LED. like stop light, parking, tail lights i was wondering would the LED light work for such an old car.
also the 194 cluster light you got did they fit direct to bracket.
