98 cavalier z24 check engine light and ETS light comes on. What is this?

The ETS light is the warning light for the Electronic Traction Control. Check Engine light indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Take the vehicle to Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, O'Reilles, or Pep Boys and have the ECU scanned to see what codes comes up. The code will tell your what part is being effected.

My check engine light is on S70 Volvo 1998.

You will need to have your trouble codes pulled in order to determine what the problem is. If you live here in the states, go to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to check your car for trouble codes, they will do this free of charge, write the codes down and reply back. We can begin to diagnose at that point.

ETS light comes on and off

There are two problems here. First you need and abs control unit. They are very expensive and it is possible to rebuild them. A couple of places to call: ATE, Auto Truck Electronics, they are in Florida, and BBA Remanufacturing near Boston, MA. I have used both companies and they charge much less to rebuild them than it costs to purchase a new one. That should take care of the speedometer, brake light, and ABS light. As for the check engine, that could be anything and the car will need to be scanned. ETS light can be remedied by a trip to the dealer. There is a campaign to install new software to the Electronic Throttle Controller. This is no charge to the customer and I believe the car has to be under 200,000 miles.
