You most likely have water in the spark plug hole that is shorting out the coil pack. Pull the Coil Pack and dry it out and spray with WD40

Undo plastic grub screws 90 degree under passenger foot well . Mine looks like part of the carpet which will drop down. There is a diagram shown on the panel you open up with the set up of the fuses.

In the door hinge of the volvo . There is a black block connector. U flick that up with a small screwdriver to disconnect the mirror electrics. It is a swine to fix parts of the mirror as you can break the lugs on the mirror covers. You will need to undo the covers inside and the door panel if you are replacing the mirror as a whole unit . This will allow you to trace the wires back through to reconnect it at the door hinge.

The remote receiver unit is located in the rear view mirror. This may be faulty. Since the car is new (less than a year?) you still may have the factory warranty.

Automatic Traction Control, or any TC system that relies on looking at individual wheel speed, will always do this. If all four wheels are spinning at the same speed (with allowances for turning), it will shut off. If some wheels start spinning faster than others, it will reduce power to the faster wheels and increase power to the slower wheels with the assumption that the slow ones are gripping well and the fast ones are spinning freely. It takes several revolutions of the wheels, and sometimes more than a second for these decisions to be made.

A blown fuse is about the last place I would look to find the cause of a problem with an electric trunk release. What usually goes wrong with these is broken wires inside the conduit that connects between the body and the trunk lid.

Did you reprogram the remote after you changed the battery? It loses its mind when the battery is pulled.

Keep in mind that the drivers and the trunk latches have extra switches in them for the alarm.
A bad door latch switch may be confusing the system.

I suspect that if you replace the drivers door latch assembly, all your problems will vanish. Is this isnt work and need reprograming the remote there is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote.

Keep us updated.
