How old is the batttery? Most car batteries only last 4-5 years. I would check the date on the battery, and if it is around that old replace the battery first. If the battery voltage ever drops below 9 volts the computers can get a bit screwy.

you need to test the ignition wire on the solenoid the small one when you turn the key to start the car if the test light lights and the starter does not kick in yes its # 4 while holding the key in start position bang on the starter with a hammer it might start its a common problem with fords bad starter rebuilds and a lot of heat under the car but if you have no test light lit while turning the key then you have another problem like ignition switch or nuetral safety switch hope this helps

Volvo xc90 key will turn from 0-1 but wont turn from 1 on to start the vehicle, all lights and radio goes on but the key wont start the car???? all of SUDDEN


Ok, this just happened in our 2000 V70. The key would turn to position 1, the srs light pops on, but the key refuses to turn to start the car and the shifter is stuck in park. I pulled the oil dipstick out, lightly coated the key on ALL sides, inserted it back into the ignition and turned it a little forcibly. It turned so I cycled it back and forth a few times and it was good to go. We were stuck so this was a last ditch attempt to get going....I would suggest using clean, 3 in 1 oil to lubricate the ignition.
