That return spring mechanism, is in the 'airbag clockspring' or we call it a contact reel. this is a VERY expensive part. You can take your switch off of the steering column, there is a white button sticking out, you should be able to manipulate that up and down (for left and right movement) if you can verify that the switch cancels while you manually do it, its the clockspring, if you can not do it in one direction only, then its the switch

SOURCE: Volvo abs lights stays on
Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

The brake light system is simple. A switch at the brake linkeage, and wiring to the bulbs. Typical problems are bad grounds. Grounds are normally bad only through damage from an accident, or corrossion. Most bad grounds occur due to corrossion.
If you know how to use an Ohmeter, take the leads and jump from the bulb recepticles ground to the chassi and see if it is open, or you get a meter peg indicating current flow. It is really easy to do. You can also check the switch with a voltmeter, by running one lead from the output of the switch and the other to ground. This is like using the meter like the bulb. When you operate the switch, if the voltage is going through it the meter should deflect to around 12 volts.
Try these things, and get back to me.
Hope it helps.
