My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
In allot of cases you can obtain a wiring adapter kit from a local audio installer that will plug into your vehicles wiring and then connect to the replacement radio.If you have not checked into this I would see if this can be done.
If this was checked into contact an audio install facility to see if they can provide the wiring diagram info you need if possible as my info isn't showing the audio wiring.
Thanks Pete

Usually I do all my stereo changes myself, but the Volvo seems to have a lot more wires and different colours

My info isn't showing me a diagram for this here but usually you can obtain a wiring conversion harness from an auto electronics install facility to plug into your existing harness then it tells you how to wire it to the radio itself.
Thanks Pete
