There are several possible reasons. Obvious ones might be checking for fuses that are burned out. Second would be making sure you are getting good connections to your brake lamps (all 3). Third, check the brake light switch at the pedal. And last, Volvo Part Number 9442303 is a brake lamp failure relay that can go bad. It's not inexpensive, but probably more than likely the issue. One way to check is to find out if your cruise control works. If it does not, it is likely the relay. It is grey and flat on all sides. Earlier model Volvos had round red ones. Check the location in the service manual.
Replacing all brakes - disks and pads included - about $600
Replacing a bearing on the front - about $350 Replacing a new water pump - pump included - about $700 As you can see your quote is a good offer but if you search around you might get an even better one.
sounds like wheel bearing but first check that brake is ok and not binding check pads for excessive wear spin the wheel listen for any noise from bearing if bearing worn see my solutions for 850 volvo bearing replacement same as S70
Check, visually for brake pad contamination. Especially inboard brake pad/ Any fluid leakage should be visible through holes in wheel or on the backside of wheel. If no leak or contamination abs can be in question as suggested.
