My name is ***** ***** I am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to help you with your question today. Did you use a new tumbler or a used one?

Okay, thank you. Make sure the antenna ring (the part that goes around the column lock where the key goes in) is plugged in. It sounds like it may either be unplugged or failed. That is what reads the key and if it cannot read the key, it cuts the car off immediately as you described.
