Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like you have a short, check fuses. Did you buy a fitting adapter for the new radio to the factory wiring harness? It's the easiest way. If your hard wired the new radio in, check the wiring.

SOURCE: original radio wiring harness
Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.

sounds like its wired up wrong, remove the radio unplug the connector and remove the radio, then check all your fuses must have blown one when radio was installed, after that charge battery and with radio removed see if battery goes dead, if not recheck wiring to radio, common problem with vw aftermarket radio,they are installed wrong,good luck,
