Question about Volvo 850

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Volvo 850, non-turbo. It has a traction control button near the gear shift (never worked). On the dash idiot lights, ASB, Trax Loc and Service Engine warning lights stay on constantly and have for a long time. I replaced the mass air flow sensor as was indicated when I had a service analysis performed. Is there anyway to turn off any of the warning lights? I tried pulling fuses for the abs and trax loc, but nothing. I know the service engine light is a dealer specialty, but surely there is a "back door" way to take care of these. Thanks in advance.

    Deception is not good, but I am tired of the light. Consider the advice well taken. While I am in there, I might as well replace that annoying gear for the odometer too.

Hi! Its really annoying to see these warning lights specially when you yourself knows that everythings fine and even if there are few shortcomings it doesnt matter to you for you managed to live with it. If I we're to ask how to get rid of the check engine light, I'll just pull the bulb from the instrumental panel and it'll be gone for sure. Not unless you're willing to pay big bucks for a check engine light when you know that the car is doing fine. Hope this shed some light. Have a good one!
