Resetting abs 1999 volvo s80

I just had a speed sensor ring replaced on my 1999 volvo s80, but my abs and stc warning lights are still on. Is there a need to reset the abs to put the lights out. (I realize there is a possibility that it could also be a module, but would like to see if resetting it works)

I presume you don't need to worry about codes for the radio... unhook the battery for about 15 minutes and hook it back up... that should reset it.

    perhaps change the rating to a fixya after you do that and it does work...

My 1999 Volvo S80 has problems with speedo, abs, engine light coming on intermittently (speedo goes out along with the odometer). what to do


the check engine light is probably related to the abs light. have the car scanned to find out wich sensor is bad. it's probably one of the front wheel speed sensors going bad or the abs module is going bad

Brake failure stop asap lights and stc/abs/brake/airbag light what does it mean and how bad is it?


I have had the same problem with my car for 3 months now. It is the ABS module that needs to be replaces. Ignore the stop ASAP light the brakes will still function as standard brakes. You just don't have ABS brake functionality or STC when those lights are on. Your car should still drive fine. Go on line and order a rebuilt ABS module for about $200 and the problem is solved. Hope that helps.

Cruise control doesn't engage 1999 volvo s80 t6


not a volvo mechanic but on most american cars the abs and stc modules are in direct corilation with the cruise even though the cruise is most likely ran from vacume the disengagement is electrical.

Your ABS Computer is likely failing. They have problems with the solder joints on the circuit board, causing a code to be set and the lights to come on. Very common on this vehicle!

abs circuit board normally also can cause no speedo /1st you need to have volvo read the code and give you a print out or just throw money out the car window? generic scan tools are very limited on codes and history
