I have a 2000 Volvo S70 as well with the same code. Do you ever have trouble starting your car? I did and that's why I took it to the dealer. Appartently it's the code for the ignition immobilizer system in your car (part of the security system). Specifically, a part call the antenna ring. The antenna ring is the outer portion of your ignition switch on the steering column - the part that lights up and has the following printed on it: 0 - I - II - III. This part is actually a sensor that transmits the code stored in the microchip inside of your key. When this part goes bad it fails to transmit the correct key code to the computer, and cuts the fuel to the engine.
The dealer wanted to charge me $550 for a new antenna ring, two new keys, and software to program the car's computer with the new key codes. I purchased the antenna ring online for $50 and did it myself in 15 minutes - so easy. They claim that you can't replace the antenna ring without new software - lie! You only need the software if you are replacing the keys.
Car is running great.

There should be a mark on the cam gear(s) as well as the lower gear driven by the crank indicating TDC(top dead center), with transmission in neutral use a socket wrench with some leverage to turn the crankshaft pulley in the same direction it would turn while running. once the crank is at TDC the cam gears need to align to thier markings, likley at 12 o'clock position. if there is no marks on the bottom gear, unbent a wire coat hanger and remove the spark plug from #1 cylinder and loosly drop the hanger in, make sure nothing falls into the cylinder or any binding occurs in the cylinder. while rotating the crank you can see the wire go up and down as the piston moves, lift the wire a bit every so often to avoid it binding and be sure wire is straight and long enough to always stick up out of the cylinder enough to grab it. when its at its highest point of the compression stroke and just about to go down again, your at TDC and check the cam gear alignment. you should be able to tell the compression stoke from the exhast stroke because you must have it pretty close to start at all, if the cam gear alignment is off by half a rotation, then its the exaust stroke and keep turning. dual cams can be tricky since retentioning the belt will move at least one the gears you just aligned, but you can see how much they move and compensate so once the belt is tight everything is aligned.
