2005 XC90 2.5t imobilizer

Post by Soberdude94 »

I am new to this site and a new Volvo owner.
I bought this car from my neighbor who neglected to change the timing belt on schedule as a result she ended up loosing timing belt at 80mph.
Being very interested in Volvo and able to do the work needed I bought this car.
After removing the head and confirming it needed to be rebuilt and the pistons were not damaged to the point of replacing.
I installed a new head and all components to go with it.everything functions the way it should, the starter is good and will turn engine over without hesitation.
My issue is when I use the key to try and start the car it turns over for about One second and cuts out and then the dash flashes imobilizer . I've tried everything from letting it sit for five hours to lock and lock the door five times with the key but nothing seems to work.
Does anybody have any idea for me how to get rid of this immobilizer? Or is this an issue that I have to take to the dealership?
Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated thank you
