Question about 2002 Volvo S80

While driving my volvo 2002 s80 today, a message popped up in the message center: transmission attention needed (approximate message). Also, the car seemed to be driving sluggishly. What do I need to do and will damage occur if I drive it?

Mostly in the am... my 2006 volvo s80 flashing multiple error messages including brake failure stop safely, transmission service requested, is hard pull on engine, ca hear a couple 'clunks' under car. ...

I would start with something simple like a load test on the battery as it apparently does not have enough current stored to run the CPU properly. IN the AM I would think that you would have the lights on and these drain any excess current from the battery. Check the alternator for correct out put and check drive belt tension and condition as a slipping belt will be the cause of the faults.
