Default 1999 s80 Won't start


I have a older 1999 Volvo s80 T6 that won't start. I put the key in and all lights come on and air con, On the dash, it shows a "-" for the gear. I'm able to move the gears only if my foot is on the break. When I crank the key to start the engine, I hear a click and my headlights are off until I let go.

I've heard that this could be a starter issue, immobilizer or possibly fuses. I've changed out the Ignition switch and relay for extended X feed fuses. I've also tried jumping the car, to no avail. I doubt its the battery since all lights turn on and air con does too.

Notes: I am fairly certain I only have the Valet key. Key fob lost.
Please help!
