    Sounds like an issue with the shift lock mechanism. If you hear the click noise, that means the signal from the brake pedal switch is OK and the issue is with the lock mechanism in the shifter. Best to have a shop familiar with Volvo's look at this. Here are some near you: http://repairpal.com/volvo-within-10-miles-of-75081
    Good Luck!
