1992 460 Key will not turn in ignition

Post by Dominick »

I have a Volvo 460 auto from 1992.

The key will not turn at all although it will go in and out, and the steering lock is also erratic.

Sometimes it locks but mostly it does not. So now I can't even start the car to take it to a garage...

I suspect the steering lock is preventing the key from turning.

I've tried eternal wheel wiggling, lubrication and a new key cut to code but no luck.

Does anybody have any advice on how to go about repairing this?

Can anyone recommend a London garage/mechanic that would be good for 20 year old volvo?

Many thanks,
