Question about 2004 Volvo XC70
Hi, the problem you are having could be one of a couple of things, now the usual reason for it not turning further is due to the steering lock being on and being tight so to rule this out you need to turn the steering wheel as far as you can left and right whilst trying to turn the key.
it may be real stiff to turn so you may need to try turning it quite hard do it left and right whilst turning the key backwards and forwards until it gets past that possition and it should then hopefully get you started.
now the second problem you could have is that the key has worn and no longer presses the correct setting in the barrel to turn the key to enable you to start the car, you can try putting the key in the other way round, you could also spray a bit of easing spray into the lock to try and loosening it but only spray a small amount.
if you have a spare key you should try this as well just to find out if its the key or the barrel at fault.
you should also try pulling the key in and out a small amount whislt you try turning the key sometimes this will free the it up and get it working again.
failing that you could need to get yourself a new ignition barrel.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
