did you try just pulling the wheel to one side? If wheels are turned too far one way mine will lock up like that too - turn INTO the steer and then try to crank. Hope that is all it was! I hate my anti-theft and am tryin to have it completely disables - who is going to steal my '91 volvo???

I'll bet this is the "key" to getting your key out - - my son's car had the same problem, but he forgot to mention it when we traded cars for the week! Check the button on your shifter - the button you have to squeeze to change gears - - it's probably stuck "in", rather than popping back out as it should. My son has had this problem for 2 years, and I can't believe he put up with it on a daily basis. The button (it's actually a wedge shape" was barely sticking out of the shift knob, so you'd have to use two fingers of both hands to pull it forward (towards the dash) - busts your manicure, for sure. I sprayed it with WD-40 when I got home, it popped out in a flash, and no problem since!

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

Hi I am vortash I had this once and it was the same vehicle I cut a thin piece of plastic from an old credit card just slightly thinner than the key and applied some superglue to it onl a very tiny amount in the middle of the plastic I applied it with a pin so not to put too much on .. I then eased it into the keyhole next to the key waited 5 minutes for the glue to dry and managed to gently pull it out but if you dont fancy that idea I have also seen it done by drilling a vey small hole in the top of the broken Key with a Dremel and a fine drill bit and a small allen key with loctite on it pushed and tapped into the hole .. that worked also .. hope this helps Regards Vortash
