You car has an integrated key and remote.
There is a software that needs to be downloaded to the car. When the remote is purchased at the dealer it comes in a plastic package. That plastic package has a sticker on it. The sticker contains id codes.
There are two codes one is 16 digits/letters and the second one is 8 digits/letters.
Without this sticker the dealership can not program the remote/key to the car. If you buy a key elsewhere, make sure it has the codes included.
Unfortunately you cannot program a remote yourself.

When the battery was disconnected the computer lost it memory and it has to be programed with a Volvo Scan tool. There are other computer relearn procedures for vehicle or system operation. These may include:
Initial control unit programing
Traction control yaw sensor initializing
Anti-theft system or engine immobilizer system passwords
