2001 Volvo S80 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 144550 miles

MY CAR RUNS FINE, EXCEPT IT SOMETIMES SURGES WHEN I AM IN PARK AND WHEN I HAVE MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE.
MY DASHBOARD LIGHTING WILL ALSO DIM AND LIGHT AS IT SURGES.
SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T WANT TO TAKE OFF AFTER I HAVE STOPPED AND PUSHED ON THE GAS.
IF I PUSH DOWN HARD IT WILL GO ON AND GO. RUNS FINE UNTIL I PARK OR STOP AGAIN.
I AM AFRAID THIS MAY BE MAJOR. COULD YOU PLEASE ADVISE ME OF WHAT THIS COULD BE AND HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM.

Do you
have the same problem?

You may want to call Volvo to see if the electronic throttle module is still covered under the 10year/200,000 mile warranty? Your module could be failing and may be the problem to some of your other electrical problems you have stated earlier?
