Question about 1998 Volvo V70
My 98 Volvo V70 has a problem with the ignition switch. Sometimes (more often than not) the key will turn completely around without starting. If I move the locked steering wheel slightly, I can get it to find the right position and ignition works properly. Is this a problem with the ignition switch itself or the steering column lock?
This is the problem with the ignition switch.
The lock cylinder into which the key is inserted, and the electronic switch that sits just behind the lock cylinder are not in proper alignment with each other.
Probably before you plan to replace the switch you can take the switch of and put it back in, many a times that will fix the alignment issue.
