SOURCE: ETS light comes on and off
Just to add to it. Volvo Darin is right, but the extended warranty period was for 10 years or 200,000 miles. It depends on your warranty start date. Being a 1999 it could or could not be covered.
Don't wait any longer, because there is NO help or extension of this warranty after 10 years.

If you have SRS and "brake failure" it should be taken to a dealer. a shadetree mechanic will screw more up than he will fix in this case. trust me on this! you will pay a price, but will save you more $ and less headache in the longrun.

WHAT HAPPENED IS WHEN YOU SHUT DOWN AND RESTARTED YOU (RESET THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT COMPUTER) AND THE SERVICE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT AFTER 10 MINUTES OF DRIVING

your car is going in "limp" mode,
the computer is seeing a problem with a sensor on the transmission,so it won't up shift because it doesn't know how fast your going.
check the speed sensor,the input sensor,and the output sensor.one of these is not working correctly,
it will help when you have the car checked for codes,look for history codes section.
cycling the key resets the soft code but it will always return until repaired.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or
injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
