Question about Volvo Cars & Trucks
MY KEYS WERE STOLEN FOR 3 MONTHS AND WHEN THEY WERE RETURNED ALL OF A SUDDEN MY KEY WOULDNT GO INTO THE IGNITION UNLESS I PULLED THE SWITCH OFF. I MADE SURE IT WAS MY KEY BY MY DOORS SO THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.
Did you have another key so you could drive the volvo or did it set for 3 months. I you did not insert a key for 3 months, it is possible that something entered the key tumbler or someone tried another key or screwdriver or pick and bent the key tumblers. You may need to replace the key tumbler and key or have a key tooler take your key and tumbler and reset them so that the would work together again.

SOURCE: KEY WONT TURN IGNITION
Your car uses a transonder key, a key with a small chip embedded inside. The transponder is matched to the immobilizer unit in your car. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the immobilizer searches for that transponder, if it's not near the ignition, the car will just keep turning over and not start. Your only real options are to replace the steering lock or buy a transponder bypass unit, which I do not recommend. Just do a google search.
