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.

Turn the key to full power (but do not crank the engine). You may hear a high pitched whine from behind you - that's the fuel pump running. Leave the key on for about five seconds, then turn it off for a minute. Turn the key on again for another five seconds, and off for a minute. Then turn the key on for five seconds, and then crank the engine.
If your car ran out of gas, you need to run the fuel pump this way to get fuel up to the engine again - all the lines from the tank to the engine are empty, so the pump needs to run to fill them.
If this doesn't work, it's possible that the fuel pump is vapor-locked and will have to be replaced. Some cars are more susceptible than others to this type of failure.
