The cap on the coolant reservoir may be leaking a small bit of air. When the water and whatever air is in the system gets heated, it expands. As it cools later it may suck air back in, probably slow enough so that you don't hear it. When you hear the sound, press firmly on the reservoir cap to see if the sound changes or goes away. If so, then try replacing the cap. It should only cost about $10 USD or less to replace it.

Hi, could do with a little more info to be sure but it sounds like low battery voltage. That would cause the starter motor to click when trying to crank and low battery voltage could trigger other faults including brake and ABS warnings. Do your dash lights dim when trying to start the vehicle? That would be another symptom of low battery voltage.

The passenger seat has a occupant weight sensor in it. If she placed her purse or anything in it, the warning will come on. Either fasten that belt or remove any objects you have in the seat. This was my very first thought when I read your question.

It's plastic so just pulling it off is not just 4 bolts and it comes off. You have bolts screws and plastic clips to remove. May have to remove the grill headlights and inner fenders and under the car skid plate cover if it's still there. Then find any wires to unplug and then slip it forward and keep looking for screws holding till it comes off.

Locate your second key fob -
Try using that key fob -

if it does not work, and you can verify the Batteries in both Fob's are good - it could be a couple different things.

1. your security system control box may be 'bad'.
2. their is a 'ring' around the key area that are notorious for going bad and preventing the car from starting - however...they don't prevent the key fob from remotely opening the door locks.
3. The power feeding the security system is interrupted (blown fuse, etc) -

I would do the following:

1. Check the second fob and see if it works - If it does you have a bad #1 key fob (or battery).
2. Check ALL of the fuses (in the dashboard Drivers side access panel) AND under hood - Check even those not labeled security - as there are often fuses that feed more than one item, but are only labeled for one item.
3. Try going inside the car, shut all the doors, and lock/unlock the car five or six times using the interior control - I believe this is supposed to reset the unit.
I could be wrong - you can look this up. It might be that you have to do this with the key fob but I can't recall.

Give those things a shot. Also, make 100% sure all of the doors, hood, trunk, etc are fully closed.

I'd just about bet you have a bad key fob - finding #2 is the key here.

Beyond that - it's probably a trip to the junkyard for a new security module and matching set of key fobs - But long before getting involved in that - I'd bet you have a bad key fob or blown fuse -

Security Modules and key fob's are not universally replaceable, are extremely difficult to work with (for those without VIDA [Volvo Diagnostic software] and programming capabilities) and have to be programmed to work with the control unit to which assigned.
