Default VOLVO S-80 IGNITION ANTENNA RING?

NEW TO THIS FORUM.. LOTS OF QUESTIONS AND I HOPE I GET SOME HELP..

I HAVE A 2001 VOLVO S-80. I HAVE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE OUT OF THIS CAR SINCE I BOUGHT IT ABOUT A YEAR AGO NOW.

I DROVE IT ON THURSDAY AND PARKED FOR THE NIGHT. I GET UP THE NEXT MORNING AND THE CAR WILL NOT CRANK. THE WINDOW SAID IMMOBILIZER. I CALLED MY VOLVO DEALER AND THEY SAY IT IS THE ANTENNA RING.

WELL I WANT TO KNOW IF THERE IS A WAY TO CRANK THECAR WITHOUT THE ANTENNA RING. I DON'T HAVE LOTS OF MONEY, IN FACT I HAVE A NEW BABY SO TIMES ARE HARD.

THE DEALER WANTS ME TO GET THE CAR TOWED THERE, BUY THE ANTENNA RING AND GET SOFTWARE DOWNLOADED TO THE CAR. ALL THAT IS EXPENSIVE. AND I WOULD HATE TO PAY THE MONEY AND THAT NOT BE THE ISSUE. IN FACT MY CAR ALSO TELLS ME SOMTHING ABOUT ABS SERVICE TOO. AND SOME EVEN SAY THIER CAR WILL RUN FOR A FEW DAYS AND STOP AGAIN AFTER REPLACING THE ANTENNA RING.

I TAKE IT THAT THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM WITH VOLVO'S BECAUSE AFTER THE RESEARCH I HAVE DONE SO FAR ON THE INTERNET AND THIS ISSUE, THERE ARE LOADS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM!

FOR THE PRICE OF VOLVO'S YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE GOOD DEPENDABLE CARS BUT I AM TO THE POINT NOW I WILL BE TRADING IT IN AND WILL NEVER BUY ONE AGAIN. NOT EVEN ADDING THAT THE GUY AT VOLVO WAS WAY WAY RUDE!

ANYWAYS, ANY SUGGESTIONS OR THINGS YOU MAY KNOW ABOUT THIS SITUATION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED..

Do you have another key you can try?
You can replace the antenna ring yourself.
