My 2000 S40, which I purchased used has started accelerating on its own.
The Cruise control is turned "off".

You have to hold down the brake pedal to keep from taking off.

Any thoughts or ideas? My wife is now afraid to drive it.

I had the same problem, it turned out to be faulty thermostat sensor, of al things.
Car wasn't overheating, but once they fixed it, ghostly accerlation was gone.
