Volvo V70 Throttle Buddy GONE!

We have a 1999 Volve V70 that went in for brakes and ABS work and when they went to take the car for a test drive it was sputtering. When they brought it back to the garage, they have found that the "throttle buddy" is gone. What should we do? We live in Germany, not the US.

I put the computer on my volvo v70 n i have this code ..p0460,p1618,p0722,p1550 and i like to know what r they and how can i fick them cuz i need to pass the inspection to get it register . in the dasboard...

Per other sites I've seen these 2 codes p1618,p0722, are your ABS module. It can be taken out and re soldered and will work fine. Many Volvo mechanics know how to do this or you can find a repair service on Ebaymotors possibly. My guy charges me $150. Supposedly you can even drive the car without the module installed but you won't have abs so don't expect to stop as you usually would with a correctly working ABS. Your tires will now skid old school instead of the abs module taking over and pullsing your brake pedal, etc.

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..

Honestly dont know about this one ,seems to be a product fault ,and the best people to ask is the local volvo garage ,Yes i know about dealer so called mechanics and they are the **** of many jokes in the motor trade but they do have more idea about silly niggly faults like this on their own brand than a general motor mechanic .

ABS light on 1999 Fored Expedition

There is a problem with the ABS (Anti-Lock Brakes). Unless you have the knowledge to diagnose and repair this problem I suggest you seek help from a trusted mechanic or your Volvo dealer. Your ABS may not be working correctly but your normal brakes will still work.

Volvo abs lights stays on

Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.
