Question Answered: 

Either your scanner is not compatible with the ECU or the ECU has a wiring, or internal issue. My bet is it's not compatible. This year the Volvo has a mix of old and new technology and the ECU is the "newer" of the two. Try contacting a euro shop and ask waht they use. Good luck.

There is an issue with the emissions system that turned the light on. You will need to have someone diagnose the emission system to see what caused the fault to occur, then turn off the light. For these situations it's best to have an shops that specializes in Volvo's and/or emissions test/repair look at this for you. Good luck

If the timing belt broke, you're looking at an expensive repair. When the timing belt breaks, the internal engine parts will contact each other and need to be replaced. In more clear terms, the piston hit's the valves, bending the valves and in rare cases, the piston can be damaged. The cylinder head will need to be removed and inspected, then fixed. This can run $3-$4000, so it's probably not worth fixing IMHO. Bret

This means the transmission computer has registered a fault with the transmission. A fault can be recorded for many different reasons, so it's best not to guess what the cause, or fix might be. You can read the codes without any tools, just search for the instruction, pull the codes from the engine and transmission computers, post them and we can offer better advice.
