    I've seen a few problems with the shift lock systems on the S80. There are several things that can go wrong, so you'll need to dig into it and see what is failing. Checking for diagnostic fault codes is a good place to start. I strongly suggest having a Volvo shop, or European specialist shop look at this though.
