Question about 2000 Volvo S70

1 Answer

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights

The problem seems to occur after the car has warmed up. When you put your foot on the brake the cars idle will drop below normal and as you stop the car will stall. If you can stop without the car stalling the rpms will increase back to normal and the car will sit and idle fine. It appears that the car does not know to disengage the transmission until the speed is down to zero and this causes the car to stop please help?

These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.

does this model have an ETS on it? Electronic throttle system. I could need a new throttle body. Sometimes the software goes bad and it will give the symptoms you described.

1998 Volvo S70 stalls intermittently


Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.

I have a 1998 Volvo S70. The rear brake lights don't work. I have checked the fuses, changed bulbs, and checked the trees which are fine. What could it be!


You have a sensor around your brake pedal that tells your lights to come on and off!! Hint: also cause of brake lights sticking on! Try replace this sensor and you should be good to go!!
