Not sure about your Volvo but some Volvos are so difficult to get to pass a "drive cycle" for smog test purposes that the State of California exempt them from having to have the monitors passed. Call your state smog test people or Volvo dealership.

you need a tech to perform a drive cycle. it costs but he knows how to drive the vehicle to set the monitors. very specific way to drive the car to set the moitors.
