These are very complex systems. This really needs to go to a shop that has the equipment to read the diagnostic data in all the computers in the vehicle and update the software if necessary. If you continue to replace parts you will only create more issue, waste money and not fix the problem. This is a guarantee. Sorry to be so blunt, but I've worked on hundreds of Volvo's and this approach will not work. Please find a Volvo shop and have them look at this.
Best of luck to you.
