Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2001 s80 Volvo. Recently I changed my oil and got a new battery for it. A few nights a go my wheel looked and I tried everything to unlock it, eventually someone helped and started my car for a week now my car has been running between 2-3 rpms sometimes even 4. I don't know why or how to fix whatever it is that's causing this. Please help!

If you have a vacuum leak, the engine will run fast. Check the black hose from the brake booster on the firewall to the engine. It could also be a throttle cable hanging up or a throttle position sensor.

How's the function of takin' the key out and puttin' it back in going? Was the steering wheel preventing the key from turning?...I'm guessing you jolly rogered the key not correct anymore, Don't you have two keys? Isn't it an electronic key? the full ignition and components are not on fully. Inspect this key to make sure it's all there.

I'll check my houses and cables, the key didn't want to turn the day my wheel locked...I have three keys and they all fit my car

Standard configuration. yay. I'd have to look at your electrical diagram to see if your keyswitch is enabling all circuits. The 'brain' seems to be operating on default setting,

...is running with half the circuits enabled, somehow...

really need to get in there, electrical diagram in hand and tester to see what's working normally, and what the faulty ignition switch (apparently) has not enabled~
