My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to try to help you with your question. This is a problem related to the immobilizer. First, which I assume you already tried, remove the key, reinsert it into the ignition and try to start the car. If you have another key, try the other key. If it starts with the other key, the problem is with the key and it will need to be replaced. If it doesn't start with either key, the problem is most likely with the antenna ring, which reads the keys.
