Volvo Excavator Keys sometimes get stuck in the ignition switch. This can make the key very difficult to pull out of the switch and it could get damaged if you force it.
I have seen a lot of excavators where the ignition switch is damaged from people trying to pull on the key to release it from the switch. Luckily there is a simple way to unlock your Volvo Excavator Key using another key that matches your Volvo Excavator key code.
Turn the Volvo Excavator Key in the lock located on top of the engine hood
Turn the Volvo Excavator Key in the lock located on top of the engine hood. Locate a small, plastic cover with a raised bar across it. Remove this cover and pull out the key from underneath it. There should also be a fuel shut-off switch located next to the compartment. Turn this switch to the “Off” position.
There is another release for the hood latch, located behind the battery box. Use a screwdriver to remove two screws holding down two metal covers, then unscrew and unclip two more smaller screws holding down two more covers. Pry open the large cover on top of the battery box and locate a small lever inside that is near your right shoulder when looking at the engine hood. Pull this lever to release the hood latch.
Twist Volvo Excavator Key counter-clockwise until it stops turning
The ignition key in your Volvo Excavator is a safety device that prevents unauthorized persons from starting the engine. When you insert the key into the ignition and turn it, the tumblers inside the cylinder of the lock move and allow current to pass through to start the engine.
When you turn the key to stop the engine, it is possible that one of these tumblers has not returned to its original position. This will cause the key to become stuck or jammed in the ignition. If this has happened to you, follow these steps:
1. Turn on your car’s headlights
2. Verify that all electrical functions are working properly
3. Twist Volvo Excavator Key counter-clockwise until it stops turning
4. Pull key out of ignition

Open the engine hood and look for a black knob with red tabs on either side
If you want to turn off the engine on a Volvo excavator, open the engine hood and look for a black knob with red tabs on either side. Lift up the lever and turn it to degrees, then push the lever back down and turn the key counterclockwise. Finally, remove the key from the ignition switch.
Volvo excavators feature an ignition system that requires a key in order to start up. If you need to shut off your machine for any reason, turning off the engine can be done by following a few simple steps.
Open the engine hood. There is an access door on top of the Volvo excavator that opens upward, which gives you access to the control panel and ignition switch.
Find the emergency shutoff lever. This is located next to the ignition switch and should be easy to spot because it’s a large black knob with red tabs on either side.
Pull up on the lever with one hand while turning it degrees clockwise with your other hand. You will then have to push it back down before you can turn it further.
