If the ignition key for your Volvo S60 will not work, this can leave you puzzled about what to do next. Fortunately, there are a number of simple things you can try that will likely alleviate the problem and have your car starting normally once again.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Make sure the car is in park and that the transmission is not in neutral. If the car is in the wrong position, the key won't turn and the engine won't engage.

  2. 2

    Set your parking brake and make sure that the wheels are inactive. The wheels can move when you are on a hill, and this can prevent you from turning the key.

  3. 3

    Turn the steering wheel hard in both directions and attempt to straighten the wheels. Sometimes your car will not start because the wheels are pointed too drastically in one direction.

  4. 4

    Make sure the key is inserted all the way into the ignition. You can do this by removing the panels around the column and making sure nothing is restricting the key. You can also insert a wire or screwdriver into the slot to make sure nothing is preventing the key from being pushed in all the way.
