Question about 1999 Volvo S80

1 Answer

Engine looses power, and abs, stc and lampasond lights sometimes comes on...

Got a 1999 S80 T5. The lambda sond, abs and stc lights in the intrument panel goes on form time to time....and ofcourse the abs and the stc functions on the car does not work. I can live with that, but a while after the warning lights has been turned on, the cars looses it's power. The fuel consumption is normal, but it gets a noisy and lazy kind of sound from it's exhaust.....and as i said, there is amlomst no power left in the car. Sometimes it helps to stop the engine, and sometimes it just keep getting better as i drive.....just as it slowly getting worse again later...someone told me about a box that controlls the abs and stc, that is located under the dashboard, that may be the problem with those, but could it be the one causing the engine to "sleep"??

I have a 200 Volvo s80. last week when my wife started it, all the lights came on... stc,brake failure, check engine light, brake light..they all are on and i cant seem to find the problem.. can someone...


I have a similar problem, I am going to assume that most of the lights have gone out and you are left with the check engine and a transmission service message. Check the OBD for the error codes and see what they say. If they are P0722, P1618, P1633 it is likely your ABS module. This module appears to have a life span of 5 years to 80,000 miles average before it needs to be replaced. Other symptoms of a bad module would be that the ABS light comes on while driving down the road. Than goes out on the next engine restart or two. Victor Rocha is reconditioning ABS modules for $125.00 and upgrading them to better than factory. There are instructions on the web of where and how to remove the ABS module. This is better than the dealer's new module for $995.00 plus installation.

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.

Resetting abs 1999 volvo s80


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.

Dashboard red lights


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!
