Very likely the ABS module is bad, this is very common. If you could post the codes that are stored, I could possibly give you a definitive answer.

My volvo s80 check eng, light is on and the code is p0011 and (cam shaft postion sensor) the the abs and all other lights keep going on and off every time i start the car i need some help please help


Hi there,

Firstly, when starting the car, ALL warning lights should illuminate briefly - this is a self test to ensure these systems are working ok. When the Engine Check light remains illuminated, then a fault has been detected.

Code P0011 can be triggered by the following issues: Improper camshaft timing, wiring problems, continuous oil flow to the VCT piston chamber, faulty timing valve solenoid.

Due to the possible causes above, only an authorised Volvo service agent will have the correct scanning/diagnostic tool to identify where the problem lies.

I recommend you have the service agent carry out a further diagnostic...



Regards,

i got the same car as urs. its seems to me that its the classic problems that you have. To slove them. Dont go to a dealer, coz they ll rip u off. Now, check on DIY guide for uninstalling ABS moudle. Go to ebay, find urself a ABS Moudle rebuild. 60-80bugs. put it back on. It ll slove ur limb home mode, speed meter drop to 0 when driving. flashing arrow. Contact volvo, buy urself a new ignition antena ring, 50bugs. and once again. look for DIY guide for installation. I replace both of them myself for less than an hour. u might need to buy some special torx for abs moudle tho. but it wont be a big deal. Hope it helps you.

I get various lights on: transmission, ABS and


More like computer.. you will need to isolate the problem with one code at a time... sometime two codes are fixed, try this:
1. Check the rotor and break pad thickness, that normally will fix abs, brake or abs and tracs.
2. check engine could be as simple as an O2 sensor or fuel filter, coil pack, starter... each needs to be check'd.
3. check engine should identify condition codes.. go to princess auto and pick up the comptuer untit for 60$.
4. If it ain't burning oil.. heck have fun with it.
Have fun..

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

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

ETS light comes on and off


There are two problems here. First you need and abs control unit. They are very expensive and it is possible to rebuild them. A couple of places to call: ATE, Auto Truck Electronics, they are in Florida, and BBA Remanufacturing near Boston, MA. I have used both companies and they charge much less to rebuild them than it costs to purchase a new one. That should take care of the speedometer, brake light, and ABS light. As for the check engine, that could be anything and the car will need to be scanned. ETS light can be remedied by a trip to the dealer. There is a campaign to install new software to the Electronic Throttle Controller. This is no charge to the customer and I believe the car has to be under 200,000 miles.

1999 Volvo XC Check Engine for 7 years


Consider disconnecting your check engine light, and fixing things that actually break.  Okay, well at least concede it is not the engine, the engines in these cars are very good.  My experience with my v70 has been that the light is on more than it is off, and it is usually something trivial-- a tail light bulb, a thermostat (have you tried that?).
In the case of the thermostat three different shops charged 100 to check the computer, shrugged and suggested a new transmission, new catalytic converter, selling the car -- although the transmission appeared fine on the computer. The car had been overheating, and the transmission which overheated due to this malfunctioned in hot weather too.  Before selling I quizzed friends and non-volvo mechanics about the overheating problem.  I bought a thermostat, the guy showed me how to put it in, flushed coolant and voila, the engine light went off, the transmission works flawlessly.  The check engine light went back on because the tail light went out, replaced it, light went back off.  The car has such a bad rap people assume the worst.  Beware of the dealerships and mechanic shops, they want to sell you stuff.

My check engine light is on, my speedometer do not work, my ABS light and Brake light is on. My check engine, ABS and brake lights stay on all the time and my speedo does'nt work.


Speed sensor located in top of rear diff is probably bad, It sends a signal to abs module for abs, it also is used by pcm and cluster for vehicle speed.Sometimes rear diff mechanical problem can damage the sensor. Trans sensors have nothing to do with speedo or abs light.
