Can not turn key to start the car


Either the "key lock " is broken, or you have the wrong key, or the steering wheel is in a bind.
Usually, the problem is # 3.
To fix it, either you or someone else needs to pull the steering wheel to the right or left until the key will turn.
One person pulls the wheel right of left whilst the other tries to turn the ignition key.
Do not force the key, but it is OK to tug the steering wheel.
This might take a little muscle.
If your front wheel is up against a curb, or something, this can happen.
God bless your efforts.

Something wrong in the fuse box if you only have .4 volts at the fuse. Maybe a loose terminal in there.

Volvo s60 2003 - Without warning the car won't start but when you leave it overnight it appears to be okay. Clock runs sporatically and different msgs such are airbag, alarm was going off, removed


Sound like you are dealing with a bad battery connection,or even a bad ignition switch,Volvo at your year had ignition related problems where the ignition switch would go past position 1,this was due to ingition column lock,On your type of make and model it is not adviseable you crank the engine,and recrank the engine if it not starting your immoblizer is done every one key ignition cycle,and can create false message,or DTC (trouble codes),

Ignition key won't turn


Try turning the key while jerking the wheel left and right and depressing the brake pedal. If that won't work try another key.

The tumblers have wore down and won't let the key turn. At this point you need to have the tumbler set replaced.
