This is a known tech issue with MANY models of Volvo. The problem lies in the electrical connections in and between modules and sensors. Even seasoned Volvo techs have a hard time with this problem. I would definitely take it to a dealership and get a troubleshoot & diagnosis done. As far as I know, there are tech bulletins on the issue, but no recalls. A dealership would have the most recent and effective repair solutions to perform after doing a diagnosis.

SOURCE: 1997 Ford F-350 7.3 L Diesel..........brake failure

With no leaks and a little braking action returning by pumping the pedal I would suggest looking into a master cylinder. Low brake fluid level in the master cylinder will cause the brake warning light to illuminate (possibly, also the ABS light).

If the truck has the 7.3L diesel, it will have a vacuum pump which supplies vacuum for all vacuum accessories. I believe if the vacuum level drops below 10 in. of Hg, the brake light will illuminate. If the vacuum pump fails you'll know it as the brake pedal will require quite a bit of effort to effect any braking effort.

SOURCE: brake failure stop asap lights and

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.

Try removing the battery for half an hour or so and then reconnecting (check you have all your radio codes etc before you do this).

Brake failure


If you are talking about the brake pedal being stiff and too hard to push, then working easily again - it sounds like you temporarily lost the power assist. This will happen again and it is not safe to drive until properly repaired.

Many decades ago cars had no power assist and took much more foot pressure and much longer distance to stop. So your brakes were working, just not the assist.

The power assist is provided by a vacuum line from the engine. The likely causes of the failure are: stalling or stopped engine, leak in hose from engine to brake assist booster or leak in the diaphragm inside the brake booster. There are also other much less likely causes from brake fluid lines and the master cylinder. Regardless, don't drive knowing the brakes are likely to fail.
