Ok, that is what I was going to suggest Rob, is removing the ignition switch and placing the key in the lock cylinder to get it to turn enough to release the steering wheel, what your going to need to do is order a new column lock assembly. This assembly is ordered to fit the existing keys you have for the vehicle. What happens is the gears inside the column lock break, and now you have a piece of gear stuck in the lock assembly jamming up the mechanism from moving. The correct repair is to replace the column lock assembly and order one to fit your existing programmed keys. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you. the part is 250$ or so. And will have to be ordered through a dealership or an online specific volvo site such as Volvopartswebstore.com I like the dealer on this specific part though, because if there is a problem with the exisiting keys you have fitting the new column lock, then it's on them. It is cut from your VIN number. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
