Question about 1999 Volvo S80

1 Answer

May 13, 2010. Had the tranny rebuilt ($2,200) on my 99 S80 T6 Nov of '09 (received a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty as well). Since then, nothing but trouble. Within 2 days after the tranny was rebuilt, the "FIX TRANSMISSION NEXT SERVICE" message went on. Brought it to the tranny guy. He had it for a few days, even brought it to some of his "experts" and nobody could figure it out. I continued to drive the car - just turned off the message light. The car did run fine. A few weeks later, the ABS, traction control, oil, and check engine lights came on along with the message "BRAKE FAILURE STOP SAFELY ASAP." Brought the car to tranny guy. He said it wasn't his problem - it was related to the ABS module. Again, I continued driving the car although it was running pretty rough. Then one day, it just died. Towed the car to another mechanic. Was charged $2,030 to fix the problem. Paid for the repairs and was told that if I bring the car back within 12-months or 12,000 miles with the same problem, it would be fixed for free. It was fine for 2 days and all the idiot lights were back on. I brought the car back to the mechanic. He had the car for 3 days and told me he had no idea what the problem was nor could he refund any of what I had paid him because "he did perform the work." Brought the car to Volvo. They said it was the ABS module. I had the module rebuilt and did the work myself (cost $150 vs. Volvo $1,100). Lights were off for almost 3 days, then came back on. Brought the car back to Volvo. They told me that after an ABS module is installed, the codes need to be reset (not true, but what the heck?). They reset the codes. Again, lights off for two days and then back on. Back to Volvo. They now tell me the ABS unit I had rebuilt was no good. Called the guy that rebuilt the ABS. He was adamant that he tested the unit and it was fine. Volvo insisted the ABS was bad and I needed to buy theirs ($725). I did. Two days later, the idiot lights were back on. Brought the car back to Volvo and was told that they were able to "read" the ABS I bought from them, so no problem - the codes needed to be reset again (yeah, right). They reset them yesterday. The lights stayed off until this morning. I am at my wits end (and the end of my bank account). Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.

Wow!!!!, this would drive me nuts,i would take it back to the dealer and tell them that i was told the problem was the module and they even made me buy theres, you paid them,they didnt diagnose the problem correctly,theres a problem with the abs,wiring or sensor or something, the point is you are having the exact same problem you paid for!! they need to repair this car even if they have to remove the module they put in that didnt repair it! talk to the owner this should not cost you anymore $,smiple they charged you and installed a part that did not fix the car,simple! if all fails file complaint with dmv and also advise them you will do so. good luck, let me know what happens, this is crazy the dealer cant fix there own make of car.

    I agree. This is getting ridiculous and I'm really feeling abused. I have 2 warranties and I'm letting these shops (and dealer) just keep raping me. I think my next step is to contact a consumer help line and let them get involved.

Service transmission urgent warning came on my 2003 volvo xc90.at 133161km.


you should take to the dealer the can properly diagnose and repair with proper parts.may just be due for service.
the transmissions on that model use very specific fluids in each unit.so generic oils will not due.
furthermore the cost of replacement for the trans is very high in just labor alone. not trying to scare you or promote a dealer just saying it needs factory attension with factory tools

I don't have a solution but here's a couple of thoughts.

1. What were the problems that caused the tranny to be rebuilt at 36900? Were those problems similar to what you are experiencing now?
2. Did they rebuild your transmission or drop in another rebuilt one?
3. If you are still under warranty (I don't know when it was rebuilt), I would hustle back there and complain. In fact I'd do that even if it's not under warranty.

Good luck!
