Question about 2001 Volvo S60
Pretty much the only thing to do is remove the harness you spliced into the incorrect harness and use crimp connectors (the GOOD ones, not those cheap plastic blue ones) to match wire-for-wire and restore the original circuitry. THEN have at the correct harness and reinstall the stereo wiring. It's a PITA all right, but it really is the best way to fix your problem.
Sorry about the bad news...

Yes, you have to match the wires (same colors, so that's relatively easy) and splice your original harness back in.
The reason you have the problem is that these use CANbus for communications so a lot of the various systems in the car talk to each other. The stereo ties in to the dash ties to the door module etc. You cut one out or interrupt a circuit and it can upset the other systems if they expect a certain signal/response from another module.
There are harnesses that you order that plug directly into the original Volvo wiring without cutting and then goes to the back of the new stereo. Use them to eliminate/reduce the chances of errors.
This harness should work for your car, but please double-check!

Theres a standard amongst most stereos, so if these colors apply, then you will be right,
Red is Ignition power
orange is direct power
Black is earth
blue is for phone
White is for electric arial
then there will be four coloured wires with matching color trace wires, these are the speaker wires.
Hope this gets you going, good luck.
