Not an electrical problem - the key hub itself is defective : most likely the Neiman (the lever that locks the steering shaft, located in and commanded by the hub) is defective / out of place so it blocks the key.
You will have to replace the key hub completely. You can either order an identical replacement from a Volvo dealer (in that case you will not have to change the keys) or you could get another second-hand set from a scrap or parts shop.

Try stepping on the break while moving the steering wheel from left to right. I used to own a 2003 and it had the same problem from time to time.

Good luck!

    You may also want your Volvo dealer check your ignition. This is certainly an annoying issue to have every morning.

If the ignition turns to the #1 position and back to the lock position, and you can get the key in and out of the lock with no problem, you will have to get the ignition lock replaced. You will have to order it from the dealer. You will need the VIN and proof that you are the registered owner of the car.

Purchase an after-market switch set from an auto parts dealer like NAPA or Parts plus, any one of them would get you a switch set a lot cheaper than OEM. Before I'd pay $300 for a tumbler barrel I personally would remove the switch and use a screwdriver to start my car. I've done that also.

Volvo radio doesn't accept its own code


With a good battery in the car turn the ignition key to Position I. Do not put the key in position II. Make sure "OFF" is displayed. Let the car sit with the key in position I for about two hours. "CODE" will appear in the display. Enter your code.
