159000 939 Dash lights (Check Engine, ABS, ETS, Brake) had all come on. The dealership wanted $1,800 to replace two modules (ABS & ETS). I went to an independent for a 2nd opinion. Paid to have frayed battery cable replaced to see if that would take care of the issue. It didn't as the ABS and Check Engine lights are still on. The car went back to the shop today for additional work. 
161000 0 The ETS module went out. Volvo covered the replacement work as part of a class action suit settlement.
