That could be any of a dozen things. You're going to need to have it towed into a mechanic.

I had the same problem with a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving to work as I pressed on the gas the brake and battery light would come on. When I applied the brake, the lights would go off. When I got to work I turned the car off and then tried to start it, nothing. The car made a funny sound while running and I could smell somethig smoking. I replaced the alternator and all is good again. When removing the alternator the bottom lifts off the mounting bracket, you cannot drive the bottom bolt back through the mount as I tried to. Simply remove the nut on the bottom bolt and remove the top bolt, then lift the alternator out.

SOURCE: 97 quest wont start

I experienced similar problem, all electrical functions are working but engine does not start, the problem was the strat coil (I guess the right name is the "start up motor") which did not activate, so the shaft does not engage with the engine. In this case I did not heared any sound, only the fuel pump while turning the car key. I hit softly the coil body (start up motor) and then started the car. I had to replace the coil for a new one and the problem was permanently fixed (around 10 months already since then).
I Hope this help.

Mine did the EXACT same thing! After a lot of googling, I found that you need to put the key in and turn it to the 'ON' position and leave it there for about 10 minutes. The security light will eventually stop flashing and your car will be fine to start. CRAZY, I know! But it works! Thankfully Google saved me from spending MUCHO $$$ for parts I didn't need in the first place!

you need to replace the Park Neutral Safety Sensor on the bottom of the Transmission. Should only be a $125.00 part. Your battery and starter are fine. Replace it and iy will be fixed.

2002 xc70 when going from park to drive can feel a **** into gear , no other signs of slippage in other gears or while driving . The car has been faithfully serviced and the transmission fluid changed

I feel you should go to a reputable mechanic. Ask for him to check it out. this could be a serious problem but maybe not. Get it checked before you lose all drive power.

Put a battery charger on the starter cable from
under the car & ground the black charger lead
That will charge it enough to open the door & hood

Check if you have power at the starter from the ignition key
Try give direct power to the starter, if still not starts, you have a bad starter

This is a long shot: disconnect the Postive terminal on the battery. OPEN the drivers door, LEAVE IT OPEN and connect the battery. try to start the car. On some alarms the system will reset this way.

Volvo XC70 I have had several computer errors

Check two items, chassey grounds by battery, transmission and starter. Also, check to make sure the alternator is providing enough voltage, should be around 14 amps. Had a similar problem with my 2002 XC70, replacing the alternator fixed it! I used the Car Talk website to find a good local mechanic vs. the stealer.

Try shifting the transmission to neutral and try starting the engine, if it starts, the gear position sensor is bad, which is very common on this car.
Or, the starter may be bad, not common, but possible!
