Hi- Congratulations on owning one of the best cars in the world.
From time to time they do have problems.

Try tapping on the end of the key after you insert it into the key lock.
If it turns 3 out of 5 times - you need a new lock mechanism.

Be sure you call the local Volvo Dealer and give them the VIN number; ask for any recalls or service bulletins he may have on the car. Ask two dealers if you want to be careful. Some dealers are better on this than others.

Best of it.
Please vote me high if you feel this works.
Try your spare key, the one you are using may be worn out.
