Question about 1990 Volvo 740
If the wheels are pointed to the left than turn the steering wheel gently to the left. If there is to much pressure on the steering wheel position lock it will make it difficult to turn the key. Taking the pressure off the lock by steering the wheel into the direction of the turn will help take the pressure off. If that is the problem the key should turn. If the key still doesn't turn than there is a problem with the lock cylinder.
With the key removed from the lock cylinder you can tap on the lock cylinder with the handle end of a screw driver. After a couple taps try turning the key again. Repeat a couple of times. If the key turns after trying this than the lock cylinder needs to be replaced ASAP.
