I went to start my car today and when I put the key in the ignition it doesn't do the normal sound of unlocking the steering wheel. The steering wheel is infact not locked. I have tried turning the wheel, shaking it, banging on the column, battery disconnect for like 5 minutes, to no result. When i get to position II, everything on the dash lights up. When I get to start, everything turns off except check engine and seatbelt and a oil light. While holding the key in start the check engine light blinks 7 times. Also, While in start position my dash lights dim. Volvo over the phone said it was the Ignition lock, or the alarm module. Seems some other posts on here said it was the steering column lock. No one has really posted what ended up being the cause and solution. Was wondering if anyone else had seen or heard of ways to remedy this issue.
