Question about 1995 Volvo 850
Hotwiring the immobilizer is easy: There is a panel with relays on it behind the dash. At the bottom of the steering column, by the drivers feet, there is a cover. Remove it to get access to the relay panel (just a couple of torx screws, no breakable clips as far as I can remember). Remove the "double size" relay (probably marked 210-211). Put a wire between the terminals 50E and 50F. This will hotwire the immobilizer and make sure that it always activates when turning the key.

To make sure the valves are not interfering with the pistons you can rotatel the engine with an extended wrench on the crankshaft pulley nut (at the bottom of the timing/serpentine belt). Take out the plugs to make it easier to rotate and hear/see/feel any interference. This should always be done prior to starting the engine after an overhaul just to make sure that nothing gets damaged.
Good luck mate!
