2010 s80...vehicle in park, key stuck in housing, won't start, message says "shift to park". battery tested good, all else seems in order (fuses, etc). disconnect/reconnect negative battery terminal and car will start/gears operate (can be driven) but when car is parked and turned off key is still stuck and car will not start again
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake
Customer: As far as I know the tranny is original (2010) and I have not checked the brake switch (don't know where it is) but the brakes/brake lights work fine when running/parked
JA: Are you fixing your S80 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: fixing myself. lubed shifter-arm (underneath driver side console), checked battery and fuses (good). disconnected battery cables and held them together for 30 seonds, reconnected and car started but key locked when shut off. seems like computer is not reading "park" as indicted by "shift to park" message
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no. I've done a lot of research and cannot solve the problem. seems electrical/computer related to me. thanks
