Question about 2000 Volvo S80

2 Answers

Similar - all ABS, STC, check engine lights, car rough running

This has been going on with my car for over a year now and now it won't even drive. We've tried so many things to try to fix it I'm at a loss. I'm upside down on it and can't even sell it!  Any help or thoughts would be very helpful. What was that comment about a recall?

    Thank you - what I mean by won't drive is a couple things I guess. One, if we leave it without starting it for just a couple days, it won't start up. Once we charge the battery it runs extremely rough both while idling as well as at any speed. Very nerve-racking.
    I think there must be a few things wrong with it, I have no idea where to start. Thank you for your input I will check that stuff out.

Since I do not understand your "won't drive", I will suggest this. If before this problem your ABS light would come on and than it would go out after you restart your engine. The problem might be the ABS module. If you can read the OBD error codes you likely will have P0722, P1618 and P1633. A message that says the transmission needs service. From what I have found on the web is replacing the ABS module will correct the problem. It appears that the ABS module has a life of 5 years to 80,000 miles on average. Volvo networks a lot of its computer information thru the ABS, thus a bad ABS can indicate a bad transmission. I am told that Auto Zone auto parts can read the error codes for you. But they may require you to being your car to their stop. You can also purchase your own ODB II reader from and auto parts store or Sears. Hope that helps.

P1633 is" ignition 0 switch" on the OBD 2 reader.
P1618 did not show any readout at all !

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.

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!

Brake, ABS,STC,CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON.


I had the same problem which was diagnosed incorrectly 3 times
Could be one of 2 things you may want to check
Have a tech read your codes
Have the ABS Control Module checked by a technician. If that is ok then make sure they look at the altenator
In my case, I was getting voltage spikes that were shorting out system controls -the ABS Control Module and the battery, etc. Once they put in a new altenator, the problem was fixed.
