Transmission locks up on 1996 Volvo 850

I can drive my 850 wagon, no problem starting up. Drive it a while, stop, inside temperature sensor registers high. Have to use shift override to get in gear and then it moves a bit and stalls.

Are all of these things occurring at the same time? Only at the same time, not independent of each other?

This is going to require a physical inspection to know what is going on. It may be the ignition switch, but the symptoms are not quite consistent with that. Do you have a place that can look at this for you? A Volvo shop?
