The first thing i would check with this kind of problem is the ignition switch if it's mounted in the steering column. There may be a wire on it that has an OK connection when the steering wheel is pointed straight but turning the wheel to the right stresses something a little and cuts power to an important leg of the switch.

Is the vehicle fitted with the standard stereo fitted by the manufacturer?
If not, then there is a strong chance that these controls are not compatible.

Growing noise in front end of Volvo s60


sounds like a wheel brg, if the noise lessens when you turn to the left while driving more than likely it is coming from the right side, but a brg makes more of a roaring noise.

I have a Volvo 1996. This morning I put my key in and nothing happened. It wouldn't turn or start and I couldn't get it out of park. What could be wrong?


Did you try and wringling the wheel once you had the key in. Possible the steering wheel didn't sit right when you parked it. You wouldn't possibly have or had a second volvo that the key goes to. A lot of the keys now are set to the particular car and the battery might have went in it. also the ignition switch could be bad but usually you'll start having problems with it before it just goes.

My 2002 Volvo S60 (non-turbo) has been sitting in the garage for about a 2 weeks. I started it one time during this period and no problems. This morning it would crank ok, but would not start. Any...


Two things come to mind First is take car needs 9.6 volts to start,place on charger for awhile then try again, thats a constent 9.6 volts sitting can dicharge the battery just enough for no start.2nd make sure you move the gas pedal alittle when starting. If these dont work for you repost and I can give you more Ideas
