Question about 2005 Volvo S60

1 Answer

2004 Volvo S60 T5 I had trouble turning the key once the key was inserted into the ignition box. It seemed like it was stuck. Force had to be used to turn the key though the inginition box, so the car would start. Any idea what might be going on here?

    key would not turn, had to be towed and get a new system built in sweden. dealer had car for 16 days, said system had to be handbuilt so it would be compatible with all other locks, etc. in car. Now the key is starting to bind again (6 months out of warranty). Original problem was covered by warranty, and I assume very expensive.

Could be the ignition lock mechanism. That's what I usually noticed with cars with that concern.

I am having trouble removing the key from the ignition of my 2004 Volvo s60. I'd seen a lot of the same problems on line, is this a common problem?


Sometimes the lock knob on the shifter sticks. If you hit the shifter forward gently a couple of times and the button pops out, the key should come out. If this works, spray some silicone between the knob and the shifter and move the release in and out until it moves freely.

No this is NOT Normal, The Tumblers in the Lock Are Wore Out and , My Advise Is for you to Replace the Ignition Lock Cylinder ASAP as it is Possible for it to STOP WORKING all Together thus Leaving you Possibly Stranded Somewhere.

Volvo S60 sensor ?


Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

Ignition


Occasionally the shift lock cable can stick and cause this problem. Try jiggling the shifter and see if that helps. You may need to replace the cable.

The chip in the key is purely electrical and will not prevent the key from mechanically turning the ignition switch.

the next time that happens wiggle the stering wheel. you might have an ignition lock on the car that locks the key in one spot.
