check engine light comes on and transmission service message comes on , acts like it gets stuck in a particular gear and wont come out shifts hard when it does and the drive indicator on the dash goes from D to - and wont go away until i turn car off, will go to drive after i crank it back but messes up again and is giving fault codes po700 and po717

There is a TSB out from Volvo to fix transmission shifting problems by updating the TCM's software.
You need to take it to a Volvo specialty shop who has DICE diag. system or to the dealership to have this done.
Here is a reference:
