I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

You need to get it to a dealer to have a proper diagnostic check carried out on the car.
This warning message could reflect a problem with the engine management system or other issues. The engine sensors, especially the oxygen sensors, are prone to failure on these vehicles and this may prove to be the source of the problem (or it may be another issue).
You have not indicated if there were any problems with the operation of the car before, at or after the occasion the warning appeared.
Until a proper diagnosis is done on your car the actual cause of the message is largely a guess.
If you keep the car bear in mind that these S60s do not have a good reliability record once you clock up a few years and miles. They are also relatively expensive to repair when failures occur.
