Question about 1999 Volvo V70
I had the same thing happening in my 99 Volvo v70xc. I researched it to death, took it to several auto-shops, and did some of my own tinkering (several people also seemed to think it was a wiring issue). The problem was fixed by replacing the ABS sensor. It's a small box, just below the large fuse box that lays against the firewall on the drivers side. Yep, I went to a local junk yard, got the part and replaced it myself. $75.00 for the used part, and $7.00 for the special tool it took to install. It is very difficult to remove and install, because of the awkward positioning. The next step up would be ordering the part online, and finding a mechanic that will throw it on. Doing this at a dealership w/ new parts would cost well over a grand (or more). Again, I had the exact same problem. I replaced the ABS sensor and and all of my lights went off, the speedometer quit dropping off, and my traction control quit giving me problems.
