I can’t start my car, the key won’t turn more than position I.
Tried to wiggle the steering wheel, shift override is working ok, button on the shift knob is popped out, nothing wrong I can see.
I unscrewed the steering cover this morning, and I removed the electrical part of the switch. With the key in position I, I started up the car fine with a screwdriver and was able to drive it correctly. 

Today I decided to find what was the problem with my cylinder lock. I tought maybe I could repair it, but it is impossible. The broken part is made of cast aluminum and is very small. This part is a kind of “guillotine” that slides up and down inside the mechanism. Mine was missing a guide pin, preventing it to move freely. The cause is definitely the steering wheel beeing turned to the left, forcing the steering lock from the right, and also the guillotine on its most vulnerable position. I’m sure it could happen on a brand new lock. Look at those pictures and you’ll understand.

1 Year Since Passing of Volvo 940

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Apr 27, 2012 in 1993 Volvo 940

Today, April 27, 2012 marks 1 year since the massive tornado super cells which swept across the Tennessee Valley smashing our 1993 Volvo 940 just a few hundred miles from reaching membership into the Volvo 300,000 club. We take this time to remember as it was featured on New Channel 9 in their special edition story of the 1 year anniversary.

She has been missed. RIP. We continue to pray for the loss that others have had which has been much greater than ours and we are thankful to God that our lives were spared.
