    If the weather is very damp and cold, put the car in a warm garage and see that doesn't free it up. If that is not the case, shoot some graphite lock lube into the key hole and see if that doesn't help. In fact, do it anyway since the car is old and needs it.

    If none of that works, try having someone press down on the trunk lid while you work the key. Failing all of that, you may need to remove the back seat and crawl into the trunk to work on it.

It may vary by model year, but my 740 has access to the trunk compartment by pulling down the rear seat arm rest and simply reaching through the flexible blind.

How come my spark plugs dont spark ?


well if your engine turns over but will not fire you may have a bad ignition coil so please locate it and check for voltage at small wires attached to the coil but DO NOT CHECK FOR VOLTAGE WHRE THE WIRE GOES FROM IT TO THE ENGINE.

Where is the rotory cap on a 1989 740 volvo


The rotor cap (i am not sure if you meant distributor cap or rotor button, but ill answer them both) on a 1989 Volvo 740 is located directly at the back of the engine block, connected to the cam shaft. it is the orange plastic device that the spark plug wires snap into. the rotor button is the orange plastic part found inside of the distributor. to get to the rotor button you would have to remove the distributor with a 8 or 10mm wrench (sorry I cant remember which), there are 3 bolts to remove. it should take less then 5mins to do this. GOOD LUCK:)

A good locksmith can get this open for you. we used to do these all the time...due to age we don't see many any more. Either the linkage has come off the latch or the vacumm system to the latch is not working.

Unable to lock car whith key.


Probably not. The reason the trunk (boot)and the doors have different keys is that the locking mechanism is completely different. I'm not sure bout this particular car but generally that's the case. Your best bet would be to try to find a door lock with a key at a junkyard or on eBay.
