it is most likely that the abs module is faulty,, if the fault codes are read and it shows a fault with the right rear sensor then the module is faulty,,they usually go wrong at about 110//140k

SOURCE: 2001 volvo s60 won't start

TRY HITTING THE STARTER MOTOR WITH A BIG SPANNER IT MIGHT BE STUCK. FIND OUT WHERE IT IS FROM THE MANUAL. IF NOT TRY HITTING METAL BITS IN THE ENGINE LOOKS A BIT LIKE A BARREL. DO NOT HIT IT TO HARD TAP QUITE HARD. IF NO RESULT ASK SOMEONE TO TAP IT AS YOU TURN THE KEY. IF IT STARTS IT MIGHT GO A WHILE BUT YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW ONE IF IT KEEPS HAPPENING.

2001 volvo s60 failed accelerator pedal position sensor, p1633


This sounds like the ever familiar ABS modulator failing. However, VADIS doesn't list a OEM code with P1633 (it goes from 1632 to 1635). The 16xx codes normally relate to CAN bus or an individual controller. All ABS warning lights go through the ABS module, which is why you are seeing all three of those lit up.

Brake failure urgent , abs light, low battery


So many lame responses...I went through this same experience and can tell you in my case it was the alternator. All of the warning lights such as the ABS light, airbag light, the warning about the brakes are all because the alternator is not providing the DC voltage all of the car's sophisticated electronics need to correctly monitor these subsystems' status. Mine left me high and dry by the side of Interstate 5 needing a tow. The low battery warning was off and on for about an hour before all of the other warning lights came on, and then about 5 minutes later every needle on the dash went to zero and the car died. After sitting waiting for the tow, it did start up again, but we got it towed to a dealer (thank god it got us within 8 miles of a dealer! the first warnings started when we were in the sticks) who diagnosed it as an alternator. $1200 and two days later and all is well again.
