Question about 2005 Volvo XC90
My xc90 ignition switch will not turn past position 1. The gear lever will come out of park when the foot brake is applied, but that only enabled me to get it towed home by the AA. they say it might be the ignition switch of the ECU. can you help and is it something I can repair myself?

SOURCE: engine acceleration
Causes for the car accelerating on its own are:
The cable under the hood that operates the gas is getting stuck.
Throttle pedal stuck.
Idle air control valve faulty.
There is a large vacuum leak.
ECU car computer is faulty.
The most common is the IAC, the repair is not expensive, but the car cannot be driven in this conditions.

Not from up top inside the car if it's frozen.
Sounds like it's been engaged quiet tight. So start the vehicle try depressing the release button and lifting up firmly instead of trying to immediately push downward on it to release.
Do that while lightly easing the vehicle in reverse if parked downhill to take pressure of the brake or in drive if parked uphill.
2005 is relatively new and I don't presume the cable has frozen nor snapped in the engaged position.
It's common when the brake has been engaged on a steep incline and drifted forward or the wheels curbed quiet snugly to avert rolling.

The ignition switch is turned to the RUN or the START position.
When the ignition switch is in the RUN or the START position, the current flows from the B/U Lamp fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 839 (PNK) to the park/neutral position switch. The park/neutral position switch also feeds the backup lamps portion of the switch. With the transmission in the PARK position, the current flows to the BTSI fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 275 (LT GRN). The current then flows to the TCC/stoplamp switch through CKT 584 (LT GRN/BLK). The current continues to the BTSI solenoid through CKT 1135 (DK GRN/WHT). The ground path is provided through CKT 1850 (BLK) to G207. When the brake pedal is depressed, the normally closed contacts in the TCC/stoplamp switch open and the current flow is interrupted. When the current flow is interrupted, the BTSI solenoid de-energizes. The transmission may then shift to another gear. When the transmission shifts to another gear (except PARK), the contacts in the park/neutral position switch open. This condition stops the current flow to energize the solenoid when the brake pedal releases.

Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.
