Default 2010 S80 Ignition key stuck in ignition

we have a 2010 S80 with the rectangle key that fits in the dash. It wouldn't release about 6 months ago, it eventually released and we took it to a mechanic that check the computer that showed "no event" also it stuck with both keys and eventually released. It stuck again two days ago. My mechanic has tried disconnecting the battery,, no luck,, giving the battery a surge , still no luck,,, tried putting pressure on the gear shift in park, still no luck,,, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Default s80 key stuck in ignition

Mechanic had it again,,, and boosted the power from the battery and the ignition released the key, checked system for a short in system, negative short. Checked battery and battery failed. Purchased battery less than 1 yr ago from Sears. The battery never acted as if it was low voltage/amperage, car always started fine and no indications on the instrument panel of any problems. Put in the Volvo recommended battery and seems to work fine. Mechanic works on Volvo/BMW and Mercedes,, we don't have a Volvo dealership nearby. Mechanic said he'd never seen this problem before.

I seriously doubt that it is a battery or voltage issue. If you can insert the key and start the car, that shouldn't have anything to do with the key release. I would instead be changing the key holder.
