Sounds like when you were checking codes through the #2 port (fuel injection control module) that you activated the mode where it operates the idle valve and injectors (for testing purposes). There are many things that can cause idle issues with this car, throttle body needs servicing, MAF Sensor, Idle Valve, vacuum leaks, fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump to name a few. With all the possibilities it's would be too hard to try and coach you, so I suggest taking it to a Volvo specialist or go visit the Volvo forum at Mathews Volvo site.
