    I have had my 2002 S60 back to the dealership twice since having this problem in November and it is stuck in my driveway again! I just got the car back yesterday after they had it for a week. Someone please tell me what to tell the idiots at the dealership.

    leased a 2006 volvo S60 and it locks up in the P. It will not allow me to shift out of parking to go to N or D. It just happened a couple of days ago. Sometimes i could do drive the car but most of the time it locks up. I thought it was the wheel lock system but even after i spin the wheel, it still doesn' t work. Help please it' s my daily commuter.

Must be the same as my 2005 V70. Do the brake lights function? If not it's probably a microswitch and /or solenoid needs changing somewhere gearshift mechanism. Mine let me downn yesterday but everything points to this.

My 2003 volvo s60 gear shift will not move. The car turns on but when I try to pull it out of park it is stuck and does nothing.

There is a solenoid that release the PArk lever when the Brake is pressed. Look under the console to check the wire from the brake to the console, first, then next shop is a shop.
Some times they can just get stuck to so try giving quick little vibrations with the brake pressed (not to hard) the shifter lever.
Also make sure your break lights come on when the brake is pressed to ensure you have a proper connection there also.

Car stuck in park gear

I think you have Check Gear Shift Liver Lock System. Then You have to check Brake Padel Switch because you can move gear shifter by pressing brake padel. Is your brake Padel switch defect stuck in any position.

Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.
