$t1[] = "banana";
$t1[] = "orange";
$t1[] = "kiwi";

$t2[] = "car";
$t2[] = "kiwi";
$t2[] = "cat";

print "Kiwi key: ".array_search($t1,$t2);

print "Car key: ".array_search("car",$t2);

this code print: Kiwi key: Car key: 0

Should print: Kiwi key: 1 Car key: 0

It's printing just the correct values.
Your $t2 array does not contain same array as $t1 is..

(try adding this: $t2[] = $t1; and you'll see..)

It does work with 
$t1[] = $t2[];

But it's  inneficient.
