With the key stuck in you can remove the barrel by taking off steering wheel surround and puting a small nail or something like that in the hole located at the outside of the barrel.

I cannot get the key to completely turn off in the ignition of my 2002 V70XC Volvo. How can I fix this?


Is the vehicle in park ? Your vehicle like all vehicles have safety systems that won't allow the vehicle key to be turn off and locked if the vehicle is in gear and running . How ever this systems can malfunction . There is a lock out soleniod in the column or the console if floor shifter . The first place to start would be to have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . These codes can cut diagnostic time down a bunch . Or there could be a problem the ignition lock cylinder ! If no codes are present taking the steering wheel off to get out the lock cylinder and replacing it . You may be better of taking it to a repair shop .

2005 Volvo S40 with key stuck in ignition. It turns off but key doesn't come, out of the steering wheel. Please advise needed, if lock change is required estimated cost of part and labour please.


Some ignition system locks will not release the key unless you push in towards the column while turning further off. It is a safety device to stop in advertent removal of the key while moving. Try that first.

Key is stuck in the ignition of my 1998 saturn sl.


Turn your steering wheel left or right side. If it moves, then good for you. But if doesn't, it probably means that locking system in the steering wheel is damaged. For this, you can just turn the steering wheel opposite to the direction of the car wheels. Most of the time, cars are turned off with the wheels turned on the opposite directions, which makes the key get stuck in the ignition due to pressure in the steering wheel. When the pressure is released from the steering column, a click can be heard and key is released.

If no luck, there might be a problem with shifter mechanism, which means that you have a trip to the repair shop in store for you. Get this problem addressed immediately, as it could mean that your shift interlock is out of order, which can increase the chances of deploying the air bag up in your face, causing a serious injury.

Locked steering wheel.


If your key won't turn, you can move the steering wheel back and forth until it does or try to hold the steering wheel to the left or right while turning the key. This happened with my car when I parked with my wheels turned in. Now I make sure the steering wheel and my wheels are straight when I park.
