Q: Driver seat controls do not always work on 2001 Volvo S80

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When operating the vehicle the driver seat controls do not work. When stopping and turning off the vehicle, restarting within 2 - 10 minutes does not correct the problem with driver seat controls. I have to wait up to 30 minutes to beable to use the driver seat control but only if the car is turned off and allowed to sit. Then if adjustments are not made within 1 -2 minutes of starting the car, nthe controls do not work. The passenger seat control will work at all times wioth no issues even when the driver seat controls are not working.
