    The shiflock override button is not releasing. The center console shifts and can sometimes put pressure against the button and make it stick. Be careful if you try to pry it up, it may crack. If anything has ever been spilled near your gear shift it may promote the problem too. Mine had coffee with cream & sugar. Once detailed it hasn't occurred anymore.

SOURCE: my s70 1198 volvo's radio says off what do i do??

You have to put the battery on a charger and leave the key turned to the accessory position, meaning the car is not running but the radio still displays off. You will have to wait approximately 50 minutes to 2 hours till the word "code" is displayed.Once that has occured, you can put in your code and it will work. Or you can drive around for that length of time until it says code and you will input the correct code and you radio will work. I did this on a long trip.

Wrong key? Might be a "dumb" key that fits only the doors but doesn\'t have the "smart" electronics for the ignition switch? Steering wheel jammed to one side?

1998 s70 volvo how to get radio working after unhooking battery post

You will need a Battery Charger set on low. Park your S70 hooked up to a charger. Turn the ignition switch to Accessory with out starting the engine and so the ignition is not on. It is the first single hash mark above the key, make sure it is lined up and you have power to the Radio, it will say Off. Leave it like this undisturbed for at least 2 hours and the Radio will reset itself.

1998 volvo s70. Gearshift has been sticking - must pull down lock to get it fully into "park". Problem today is that alarm sounds when you open the door or turn the key in the ignition. ...

There is a cable that connects your gearshift to the ignition switch, when this cable stretches, it does not allow the gearshift assembly to move when you have the key turned. Removed the assembly around the gear shift assembly and inspect this cable. Removed the cable and manually actuate the lever. See if this fixes the problem as it is common in the S70/C70/V70s that are pre 2000

Volvo s70 t5 key stuck inignition, how can i get it out?

Try tapping forward on the shifter while it is in park. If this works, spray some lubricant into the shifter release button on the front of the shifter. If not, you may have a problem with the ignition lock, and it will have to be replaced.

Ignition key wont go in all the way, ignition will still turn with just the tip or anything that can turn the cylinder. how do I get the old one out?

Dismount the ignition switch and knock it heavily on a hard surface with the key hole down.
You can also try with a needle with a drop of superglue on it to catch the broken key...

Otherwise, replace the ignition lock.
