Are there any markings on the female side?

If you phone the Volvo parts department they should be able to tell you who the manufacturer of the connector is. From the design it looks to be either TE or AMP(same thing now) and you could check out these guys, they have a large selection. What happened to the old connector? Do you have a picture?

Are you in the US, Canada, UK? I may have one of these in my barrel of wire ends lol.

The problem is that all the automotive connectors have many different keying options. It would be hard to find an exact match without the original part number Deutsch (now Tyco) is a popular choice, they have a great online catalogue, and you can find the parts at digikey. Keep in mind you need to purchase the housing, contacts and wedge separately, you will also have to solder the wire because you wont' have the correct crimp tool.

Might be this one:

If it was me, I would find the same connector somewhere else on the car where it's wire-to-wire, I would take the one I need for this device and replace both ends of the wire-to-wire connection.

If you do not need to use a perfect replacement part and if you know which wire should go to which pin then you could use the crimp on iserts for Amp or Molex connectors that mate with 0.025 inch square pins. With all of the power off, put each insert on the wire and then slip the insert over the pins. Then you can back-fill the connector with the cheap, clear, instant epoxy, using enough of it to support the wires and insulation. That should keep it water proof and stable.
BUT, as asked already, do you still have the original connector, or was it cut off and discarded, or lost when ssomebody stole the battery?
