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.

Break failure code on volvo s40. also traction control, falure, car goes into limp mode, no idicators

If its the ABS warning, and traction control doesn't work, then it will be a fault with one of the sensor rings, or abs sensor. Your easiest method is to have a chat with local dealer, see if a tech can plug it in to diagnostics for a lunchtime cash in hand job. It will point you to which wheel has the problem.

I had the ABS light come on along with the service traction control. I had it checked at a GM dealer and was told that the right hub needed to be replaced. I OK'd the work thinking it would take care of...

Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light comes up when making turns or when backing up. Faults are to be checked and proper diagnostic procedures carried out before parts replacement remedies.....

It sounds like some of your problem is in your ABS module. These commonly go bad. Contact this guy about a rebuild, it's much cheaper than buying a new one. After that lets see what you still have malfunctioning.
