Question about 1999 Volvo S80

Open Question

My key turns 360 degrees in my 1999 Volvo S80, and the ignition does not catch. Is there a way to resolve this?

The key goes into the ignition with no issue, then when I attempt to turn it, the key revolves 360 degrees forward with no ignition catch, however, it does not turn backward, indicating that it isn't completely shot.

SOURCE: popping noise on s80 volvo 2.9 1999

OK, I would definitely focus in the area of the left ball joint and/or strut. It could also be some other worn suspension component. Try turning the wheel backing up and applying brakes suddenly. Does popping occur. Stop and go forward same way and apply brakes popping will likely occur again. I would recommend fixing ASAP. When the ball joint fails, the whole wheel comes off and can cause a lot more damage. If you confirm that it is ball joint, I would recommend you get other one checked as well.

SOURCE: 1998 Volvo V70 ignition switch turn 360 degrees

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.

Thanks
Kevin

SOURCE: how do you turn off

According to the manual, that warning light will illuminate if a fault is detected. Normally, the SRS warning lamp should light up when the ignition key is turned to positions I, II or III and should
go out after 7 seconds or when the engine is started.

· If the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) warning light stays on after the engine has started or if it comes on while you are driving,
drive the car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for inspection as soon as possible.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my dashboard lights went oout and indicator lights

I think there is a fuse for that in your fuse panel. check your owners manual for the location of the fuses and I think it may be burnt out. Cheap fix if so :)

1999 Volvo S80 T6, Starts blower on its own.


If you are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off.

I have a S80 Volvo 2000 model. I lost my spare key.


Pay the dealer the $300.00. I have been told it's worth it to have an extra set due to the computer communication of the keys with the ignition (not sure how it works exactly.) To re-key or get a new ignition costs like 1600-1800 dollars and takes approximately 10 days to even get the parts. I checked with a Volvo dealership in WA State. I am having problems with my ignition now and the keys won't come out or turn the last little click to be able to pull them out (but not all the time), also my car will turn on no problem (only have trouble getting keys out) my car just won'y go into gear, it seems it happens more frequently when it is below 55 degrees, even after the car temp guage has reached the half way mark. I have a 1999 Volvo S80 (I hate that car!)

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.
