Your radio and accessories have a feature called delayed exit, the way it works is the options like radio will keep working as long as a door isn't opened, you either have a door switch that is always on or a delayed exit module problem, this is part of the main Body Control Module aka BCM. do the interior lights work?

Stoped runing andwill not start


If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.

If the ignition switch will not turn off, one of the most common causes is the pin on the upper ignition actuator gets loose and fall out of position. This makes it so that the Ignition will turn on and the engine will start, but it will not turn off all the way. If this is the case, the steering column will have to be removed and completely disassembled to replace the upper actuator. I do not recommend trying to fix this yourself unless you have some very good mechanical skills and are willing to purchace some special-service tools.

Another possible (common) cause of your problem may be that the "wedge" in the ignition lock cylinder that is supposed to prevent the key from being removed while the ignition is on could be worn out or broken. If this is the case, you may have turned the key back too far into the accessory position and removed the key. (It SHOULD only come out in the OFF position) You can check to see if this is the case by turning the ignition switch on and see if the key comes out. If it does, then only the lock cylinder would need to be replaced to correct this condition (Not very hard at all).

Check to see if either of these scenarios fit your circumstances and get back to me.

Radio does not work if I push the power button it says. Off


Turn ignition key to number 1 position. Turn radio on, and wait for readout in radio display to say code. This could take several hours, so make sure the car is in a safe place. When code appears, key in correct code (if you don't have it, get it from a Volvo dealer, you will need the vin # and proof that you own the car).

Key won't turn in a 2002 chevy mailbu, how do you remove the key cylinder?


tap the end of the cylinder with the handle end of a screwdriver and then try turning the key. try this several times along with wiggling the key to get the lock cylinder to turn. If you can get it to turn your in good shape.

I would recommend disconnecting the battery because the key needs to be in the run position in order for the lock cylinder to be removed. This will keep the battery from going dead.

With the key in the run position remove the trim cover that goes over the radio and heater controls. Then remove the radio. You should then be able to see the button that holds the lock cylinder in place. The button will only press in with the key in the run or accessory position (one or the other I don't remember specifically off hand) this is why it is important to get the key to turn

Push in on the button with a small screwdriver and pull the lock cylinder out.

If you can't get the key to turn than your going to have to drill the center of the lock cylinder out until you can get it to turn. I would not recommend doing this unless you understand how it works or have previous experiences doing this as it can get ugly in a hurry.

Returned home and tried to turn of car and key wont turn to lock position so that it can be removed. the car is in park and i cant figure this out


Try pumping the brake pedal and then removing the key. Otherwise try to turn it on anf off several times while keeping the brake pedal depressed and try playing with the gear lever as well.
Cheers.
