SOURCE: ABS WARNING LIGHT ON VOLVO V70 1997

ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been an overvoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle.

Hi Peter, did you try and clean the connection around the bulb before putting it back on? Sounds like a poor connection at some point and be worthwhile to check if those are okay.

Warning message stated Bulb Failure Position Light. Could not find anything pertaining to this in my little booklet that came with the car. Where would this bulb be and can I change it out myself?


Well I am not that familiar with Volvo but I did have one come to our dealership one time with a similar message but I can't really remember what it actually said. The reason for that one was one of the bulbs in the third brake light had blown. I don't know if this may help you but I would start there and yes you should be able to change that.

Message system reads "engine system maintenance required"


WHAT HAPPENED IS WHEN YOU SHUT DOWN AND RESTARTED YOU (RESET THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT COMPUTER) AND THE SERVICE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT AFTER 10 MINUTES OF DRIVING

It is the switch on the steering column with the lever on it, each circuit is seperate for right and left signal lights, so one signal light can work and the other not.
