Must be the same as my 2005 V70. Do the brake lights function? If not it's probably a microswitch and /or solenoid needs changing somewhere gearshift mechanism. Mine let me downn yesterday but everything points to this.

SOURCE: Gear stick stuck!

Are you pressing down on the brake padle when you are trying to get it out of park? If that don't work check the fuses & there may be a relay that's may be related to a safty divice to the stick shift. If you don't press the brake padle the stick shift will not release so if you leave the car running a child could not push in gear. The lock silinoid is at the gear console

You probably have your car in an inclined position, and may have the transmision system stuck.

With the vehicle running, simply have 2 or 3 persons help in rocking (slight push) the vehicle in the opposite position of the inclination while you attempt changing the gear from park to N.

That should fix it.

My xc90 volvo shifter is stuck in park, what can i do

Check your owners manual, most have a way to override the park lock out system. Also check your brake lights, if they are not working the part lock will not disengage.

I have a 2000 C70 Turbo Volvo and my key is stuck in the ignititon how can I get it out I tryed the steering wheel and it aint working

make sure the shifter is all the way in park and the button on the shifter is not stuck in. If that is all good it could be a shifter cable stuck but is most likely a bad ignition cylinder (not switch).

Car stuck in park gear

I think you have Check Gear Shift Liver Lock System. Then You have to check Brake Padel Switch because you can move gear shifter by pressing brake padel. Is your brake Padel switch defect stuck in any position.

1995 volvo 960 stuck in winter mode

Where roy might have a possible source, it is most likely the park neutral switch which has started to fail. This is indicated by the shift arrow flashing on the dash. Replacement of this component is relatively difficult without a lift

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park

see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.
