Hi, I have an 89 Volvo 245 that I bought new. It has 270000 miles. My problem is the ignition. I can hardly turn the key to the off position. I have to sit in the car and work on turning it off. Wiggling the gear selector and brake pedal has no effect. The resistance is such that the key is beginning to twist. I bought a new electical part of the ignition and it had no effect. So next, I bought a tumbler that came with new keys, locks and another electrical part, really the whole unit. With the new unit and key I still have the same problem. I believe there was a difference between 89 to 90 in the unit. I wonder if I have the wrong part? The new unit I bought comes from a part house in the Carolinas and I know I specified it was for an 89. Anyway I am stumped. I really want to drive it as I just had the driver's seat reupholstered!😁
