thats because your regular key probably has an electic connection to the car so go to your volvo dealer and they should be able to clear anything up or replace it with a key that will work

if this helps.. I had the 1998 model S70. the water pump was driven by the timing belt. you had to take the timing belt off just to replace the water pump. it was just a simple bolt on replacement. the only difficult issue is resetting the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt. the hydraulic tensioner has to be completely taken off and compressed VERY SLOWLY in a vise. then insert a very hard drill bit or (special volvo tool) into a keeper hole, reinstall hydraulic tensioner onto car and reinstall timing belt.very quickly remove drill bit from keeper hole in tensioner and the tensioner snaps back out to put tension on belt. and you are done.

Try removing the battery for half an hour or so and then reconnecting (check you have all your radio codes etc before you do this).

the trans is goning to be expensive. 1999 and 2000 are the worst years of s80. PLAGUED with electrical and software problems. yes sure most of the problems have a fix now. but not free

Testimonial: "Thank you! You are correct when you say it's going to be expensive. I was worried about gaskets leaking. I too believe the vehicle is worth fixing."
