Volvo abs lights stays on

I have a 99 S70 and a 2000 V70 XC and they both have the same problem. The ABS and brake warning lights come on, the odometer and mileage indicator go to dashed lines, and the speedometer stops working. I've had no luck getting this resolved.

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.

Based on the speedometer stops working check fault codes for a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) most likely cause. If it has a code for the right rear wheel speed sensor then you have an ABS control module problem. I believe it may process the VSS signal for the speedometer.

1995chevy silverado had F/Brake Service. Now the ABS light stays on.


It's possible that the ABS wire to one or the other front brake was unplugged.I would suggest taking it back to your service station and ask them to fix it.

Check the connections to the wheel sensors. May be water in the connector.

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.

1998 Volvo V70 (112000 miles regularly services every 6 months). The ABS light keeps coming on. New sensors fitted but did not solve the problem. Also at low speed a loss of braking and a hideous noise...


You need more work than just replacing sensors. That hideous noise is the ABS system kicking in prematurely. Take it back to the place that installed the sensors, they didn't check the whole system.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

Whe I hit my brakes in my volvo a red light shows. What does that mean? The symbol it shows is a ladybug figure


I would assume, just because it comes on when you apply your brakes it would be an ABS warning light, but you should probably ask a dealership to be sure.
