If the sensor are actually bad they wont cause any damage to the module but if you were getting codes for the sensors you should spin the wheels with car off ground to see if they are bad 1 at a time if they all show speed then your module was bad the whole time this is common with volvos

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.

My VOLVO 2002 S60 ABS and traction lights are on, how can I fix that?

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. You can get a used abs module from sort by price and have them ship it to you. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scantool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2002 Volvo s60 2.4t. My throttle module went out in April. Got it replaced. Then had oil leak at crankshaft seal. Had it replaced. Then throttle module started acting up again. It is June 9th. ...

yes they should have, your computer has a trouble code itself if it malfunctions. You can find a ecm on amazon for around $130. It seems rather strange to me however that the throttle module is the only thing affected, I would have the trouble codes read, and check all fuses and relays first.

1998 Volvo V70 (112000 miles regularly services every 6 months). The ABS light keeps coming on. New sensors fitted but did not solve the problem. Also at low speed a loss of braking and a hideous noise...

You need more work than just replacing sensors. That hideous noise is the ABS system kicking in prematurely. Take it back to the place that installed the sensors, they didn't check the whole system.
