These two circuits are linked together and you probally need a ABS MODULE and possibly a rotor and they are pretty cheap on e-bay

It would help to have some symptoms or details. But in general ABS really sucks. I would disconnect it and go with driver control.

My Volvo 94 850 odometer stop working, I bought

There are actually two gears that you need to replace, a large one and then smaller one that rides inside it. You can purchase them both at These can also sometimes affect the operation of your speedometer. Do you by chance have an ABS and TRACS light on? If so the speedometer issue may be related to your ABS controller.

1997 Volvo GLT850 Tracks light remains on, can't get out of park without using override.I think it's the sensor but don't know how to replace.

Check and make sure that the brake lights are working. It may be the brake light switch.There is a possibility that there are two separate issues though. You can have a bad ignition switch also.After starting the car move the key slowly towards the off position or wiggle the key and see if the abs/tracs light goes off.

1994 850 wagon trac light and abs light come on while driving

I will bet money that it is the ABS/TRACS module. It is mounted under the master cylinder on the bottom of the ABS unit. These are very, very, very common failures. I have replaced hundreds of them in my career. To answer your other question, the TRACS system uses brakes. For example: in the snow, when the L or R wheel is spinning faster than the opposite, the TRACS will apply brake to the spinning wheel to slow it down to an equal speed. Hope this helps.

Hi there,
If the light is on it means the ABS computer has detected a fault and it is disabled at present. You can try removing the negative battery terminal for 10 minutes then put it back on. Let the car idle for another 10 minutes and go for a drive . Try a couple of hard braking till the wheels lock. See what happens with the light. If it stays on then you'll have to get the computer scanned at the dealer's.
Let me know how you get on.
