Keychain has my key stuck in the ignition of a 2016 Camry. The key turns to the off postion, but the keychain wont allow me to push in the key to remove it from the ignition. Do I call a locksmith or a mechanic? Can i just cut the keychain off with a electric cutter? I don't wanna make this worse...

This isn’t the case with newer Toyotas in my experience. The car recognizes up to 5 (usually) full-function keys (what some people call “master”) and 3 valet keys. If you program more than that, I believe it starts overwriting the oldest keys.

I programmed a new remote key (from eBay, made by Densco, iirc, but looked identical aside from not having a logo) using an OE Toyota key, then used the Densco key to program a non-remote/locks and ignition only key.

Again, this requires the TechStream software.
