Try turning the steering wheel while trying to turn key. It may take some force on the wheel, but don't turn the key hard!

SOURCE: valet key will not start volvo s80. turns in

thats because your regular key probably has an electic connection to the car so go to your volvo dealer and they should be able to clear anything up or replace it with a key that will work

SOURCE: Hi there, 9 out of 10 times the ignition key won't

Hi- Congratulations on owning one of the best cars in the world.
From time to time they do have problems.

Try tapping on the end of the key after you insert it into the key lock.
If it turns 3 out of 5 times - you need a new lock mechanism.

Be sure you call the local Volvo Dealer and give them the VIN number; ask for any recalls or service bulletins he may have on the car. Ask two dealers if you want to be careful. Some dealers are better on this than others.

Best of it.
Please vote me high if you feel this works.

On your year there would be something , like cranking , if the security is set. I would start with checking the fuses and then work my way to the starter relay. then I would go to the starter.

Hold down the odometer reset button, turn the ignition key to position 1 for 1-2 sec. Then, turn the key to position 2 still holding the button down. Wait for the service light to flash and release the button. It can be tricky. It may take a few times to get it.

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!)
