Brake failure and engine cuts off

My 2005 Volvo V50 has started showing the message brake failure stop safely also the wipers start to work on there own along with the indicators, hand brake light and it send itself into limp mode. When you stop and turn the engine off and try to restart it the immobiliser kicks in and i cannot start the car. If you then wait for around 10 minutes it all comes back to life, no faults.

The very first thing is have the system scanned for body related fault codes by the dealer.

Check battery voltage (engine off= 12V; engine on=14.4V), then check fuses, then connect with Volvo diagnostic tool and check for error codes.

Volvo v50 wont start sometimes


Check if fuel lines don't have air bubbles.
If you have diesel, then also check glow plugs and throttle body air flaps.
Sometimes Central Electronic Module causes problems with start and other troubles (airbags, ESP, wipers) and usually you need to clean relays connectors.

Message system reads "engine system maintenance required"


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
