SOURCE: blinking light on dash board

It may be possible that your Park Neutral Position Switch (PNP Switch) is getting ready to fail. The switch is located right on top of your transmission and is connected to your shifter. This is a common problem. I doubt that your entire transmission is failing, because that is rare with the S70 line. Has your check engine light come on? The check engine light can be triggered by the failing PNP switch. You should take the car to a autozone if you do not have a code reader to see if this problem is sending a code to the computer. If you are unsure where the port is for the code reader, it is located inside of the center console armrest and has OBD II on it. It will same something such as Transmission position switch failure....if I can remeber correctly when it happened to me. If it displays this message, then it is definitely the PNP switch failing. If the PNP is failing be careful. Mine failed failed when I pulled into a parking space and as soon as I put the car in park, the check engine light came on my and the red arrow started flashing. I thought something had gotten wet and I decided to turn the car off for a reset, however, it would not let me start the car, because it thought the car was in some other gear besides park or neutral. So you should have it fixed ASAP. If you order the parts online, it can be a cheap fix. fcpgroton.com has this switch for a cheap price with great quality. How many miles do you have on your S70? My switch failed at 110,500. Let me know how that goes for you.

SOURCE: Car won't start

Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

Try removing the battery for half an hour or so and then reconnecting (check you have all your radio codes etc before you do this).

SOURCE: Volvo XC70 I have had several computer errors

Check two items, chassey grounds by battery, transmission and starter. Also, check to make sure the alternator is providing enough voltage, should be around 14 amps. Had a similar problem with my 2002 XC70, replacing the alternator fixed it! I used the Car Talk website to find a good local mechanic vs. the stealer.

Sounds like you have a short in the brake light circuit. Get a professional to look at it as this may indicate something more than a nuisance.

Have it towed and check the brakes. If you continue driving itlike that it will enctypt your ECU and you will have to have a factory reset on it.

This has to do with the anti-lock brake system. It will be fine without it, but if you want it fixed get it done at a dealer not a shop. It will cost a lot more but the repairs will be done right and will last longer.
