Also I have read that "you can get the lock programmed for your key," does this mean that I don't have to get a different key and can use my originals? Please give me links and part #'s, mine is 1998; this is a very annoying part to source I have found with a lack of good info I thought. I have read 7 or 8 other threads throughout the internet and am still bewildered.
With a '98, the ignition switch is pretty straight forward.
( No, you don't
have to worry about a transponder in the key.)
Get a hold of a Good
Volvo parts counter with your VIN and
they should be able to get you fixed up.
I'd check with DW and Boston Volvo.

I don't have a number for Boston Volvo,
but somebody here should throw in soon.
