SOURCE: 1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park

see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.

SOURCE: 1998 Volvo V70 ignition switch turn 360 degrees

This is the problem with the ignition switch.
The lock cylinder into which the key is inserted, and the electronic switch that sits just behind the lock cylinder are not in proper alignment with each other.
Probably before you plan to replace the switch you can take the switch of and put it back in, many a times that will fix the alignment issue.

Thanks
Kevin

SOURCE: Steering wheel won't lock - neither will the doors

sounds as if the locking mechanism is wearing out or not making the proper connection to the steering wheel

SOURCE: Gear shift won't move from Park sometimes. It's stuck!

If the car is inclined severly the shifter will be harder to move as more of a load rests on the park gear. You may have to pull it hard but should come out of park. Make sure your foot is firmly on the brake pedal too and the key is in the on position

It could be the safety switch in the transmission or some where in with the shifting linkage or under the counsel. May need to replace it.

So i parked my car yesterday and took the key out to find out park, but reverse. now i cant start my car or change the gears! i can still put the keys in and out and turn it but the car wont start or shift...


Put the key in, turn it forward 2 clicks like normal. Make sure you push the brakes all the way down and then try to shift the gear to park. Ya, cars wont start in gear, they made that way. If it still wont go in gear, try turning the steering wheel left & right. Sometimes the wheel lock can mess with ya. If not still, you need to call a mechanic. Cuz actually, if you were in reverse instead of park, the key should have never came out. Also make sure the key is in ALL the way.

It sounds like the ignition lock cylinder has worn out. This is the part you put the key into. It has tumblers that can wear out and when this happens, the key no longer pushes the tumblers in the correct sequence or position to allow the cylinder to turn at all.

Hope this helps!

1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem


Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

The key won't come out of the ignition.


this may sound strange but will most likely work:

You will need another person to assist you. This usually happens when parked on a hill or grade.

While trying to remove the key, have the second person push the car forward and back as if the car were stuck.

This will revolve the gears in the transmission a little and most likely will release the key.

If not, call your dealer.

My shift release lock is stuck


the gear shift lock probably needs wd-40 squirted into the assy on the gear shift knob if that doesnt work you may need to take it off and spray it, on thekey not working, when you try to turn the key, move the steering wheel either way and see if the key will turn then, sometimes the wheel will be in a tight lock position
