I have a Volvo 2002 c70, car has been driving fine everyday

Customer Question

i have a Volvo 2002 c70, car has been driving fine everyday for months had code for small Evap leak but everything else was fine. One day out of nowhere the abs, traction control, and brake light all came on. And stayed on. The next day the Ac blew a line, and stopped working. The lights come on a few minutes after car is started. A few days later I noticed a sulfur smell coming from the battery so I replaced it. It was overheating and had a fowl smell. And that day the car hesitated to stop. I replaced the battery in the advanced auto parking lot. Immediately the abs lights came on and when i drove away the abs seems to be locking. It's very jerky and isn't really drivable. I have no idea how changing the battery could have escalated whatever issue I have ! If someone can please give me some help that be great

Step one will be getting it scanned to see which ABS codes are stored. No diag can be done until these codes are known and no repairs should be attempted since they would just be guessing. Is there any way you can get it scanned and report back on the findings?
