I presume you don't need to worry about codes for the radio... unhook the battery for about 15 minutes and hook it back up... that should reset it.

Some swear this works, others say it doesn't.
If it doesn't, the only other solution appears to be having the dealer reset the code. From what I read, it happens all the time if you do work and don't disconnect the negative on the battery. Try this...
Turn ignition position 1
Press and hold the odometer reset button
Turn ignition to position 2 (continue to hold odometer reset button)
After the Service Light flashes, release the reset button.
Tip: Do not wait for the light to stop flashing. Release the reset button within 5 seconds from the beginning of flashing. this should reset the service light. you must be in t1 for the reset to work it will not reset in t2 mode.

This could be one of many problems so it's probably best checked by someone with the correct tools and knowledge.
That being said,
With your engine cold, open your hood and start your car. Check to see if your cooling fan is engaged, take note of its speed if it is. Then turn on your AC and listen for the compressor clutch to engage. once you hear it, check to see that your cooling fan is blowing, if it wasn't before. The fan should be on and in high speed whenever your AC is on, whether the engine is hot or not. If it is not, then the reason for losing cold air is that, due to the lack of being properly cooled, your freon pressure is getting too high and is causing the compressor to turn off.
If the fan is blowing as it should be, you may have a faulty compressor or the clutch on it may need to be shimmed.
Another culprit could be that your system is low on freon or the switch that senses the pressure is faulty.
And yet another culprit could be a faulty relay that is overheating and shorting out.
Sorry I couldn't give you a difinitive answer as to what the problem is, but without diagnosing it myself, this is the best I give you.

most likely the dealer. unless you have a vag com (for VW n Audi) system or similar system to what the volvo dealers use to check for engine codes

Hold down the odometer reset button, turn the ignition key to position 1 for 1-2 sec. Then, turn the key to position 2 still holding the button down. Wait for the service light to flash and release the button. It can be tricky. It may take a few times to get it.
