      The most common cause is failure of th eignition tumbler asembly, but difficutl to know for sure w/o taking a look at it. It could also be something as simple as the shift interlock mechanism needing some attention.

      There should be some mention of it in your owners manual.

      Thanks Scott.

      Will persevere a couple more days but will probably have to get my techs to look at it...

      While I was at the dealer for service someone came in with the same problem and they told them it probably needed the new cylinder or what ever its called, but he told them to try that lock button by the shifter as sometimes that can prevent you from getting the key out.

      depending on mileage either can be the culprit.
      The shift interlock can usually be adjusted out and takes only a few minutes to do. If the problem persists then consider a new tumbler.

      Thanks.

      Have tried suggestions offered kindly by folks on this board.

      Probably have to go with a new tumbler.

      You know a shot of Volvo lock oil might help a bit. I've been amazed how well that stuff works!
