I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

I cant get a stereo hooked up


Your question is not very specific but I expect that you have discovered that Volvo does not bother to color code their sound system wiring. They seem to use whatever wire they have laying around, so there is no particular pattern, and often all the wires are the same color.
If your car still has the original stereo plugs, you can buy a wiring kit from the installation shop at Best Buy. It will have a plug that plugs into the Volvo plug and wires that are color coded to standard color coding so you can figure out how to connect it to the new stereo. I not only had to put in a new stereo, but I had to bypass the original amplifier in my '91. The kit from Best Buy made it all Plug and Play!

Cd player stays on when you take the keys out of the ignition. how do i fix?


I assume you installed the CD player yourself?
There are 2 power connections to a typical CD player ...
* Battery (constant 12 volts to allow eject without key & keep memory etc.)
* Accessory (turns on radio when ignition is turned to acc or on)

The battery is typically a yellow wire and the accessory is typically a red wire. I'm assuming your installer has connected both directly to the battery cable (supplying power regardless of whether the car is on or not).

To fix the problem, you need to find the accessory cable in the car stereo group of wires.
I would usually use a tester to find which wires are 'live' when the accessory is turned on, then turn off accessory and re-test the live wires to see which one turns off when the key is off. This is your accessory wire and should be connected to the red cable of your car stereo.
