Sounds like fuel starvation. Would suggest cleaning any filters in the fuel line or replacing.
Also check the stop idle valve. This should be inline in the air intake pipe to the intake manifold..
Remove it and clean with WD40.Make sure you note the orientation of the spring.
To reset the ECU disconnect the battery for 5 minute the reconnect. The ECU should reset to factory settings. Make sure you know radio and alarm codes!
Try petrol additive STP or Redex to clean inside the engine.
Thats as far as my knowledge goes, hope it helps.

I presume you don't need to worry about codes for the radio... unhook the battery for about 15 minutes and hook it back up... that should reset it.

SOURCE: 2000 Volvo S80 indicator lights & their funct. not wrking

Your CCM (Climate Control Module) is dead, or asleep. Look in the fuse box at the left end of the dashboard and pull the fuse and see if it resets the CCM. The module may need to be reprogrammed or replaced.

My suggestion is that you take this to a Volvo mechanic, one who has experience with working on these 1999- Volvo models. They have a networked computer system that requires special tools to diagnose and download software into the modules.

Also, it is a good idea to have them perform a total software upgrade, it will address many issues, and may prevent other issues from occurring.

SOURCE: I have a 200 Volvo s80. last week when my wife

I have a similar problem, I am going to assume that most of the lights have gone out and you are left with the check engine and a transmission service message. Check the OBD for the error codes and see what they say. If they are P0722, P1618, P1633 it is likely your ABS module. This module appears to have a life span of 5 years to 80,000 miles average before it needs to be replaced. Other symptoms of a bad module would be that the ABS light comes on while driving down the road. Than goes out on the next engine restart or two. Victor Rocha is reconditioning ABS modules for $125.00 and upgrading them to better than factory. There are instructions on the web of where and how to remove the ABS module. This is better than the dealer's new module for $995.00 plus installation.

SOURCE: 1999 Volvo S80 T6 slightly fluctuating idle/blinking head lights

When you had the service done under the hood, the IDLE SENSOR got disconnected or cable got loose. This happens infrequently, but it happens when work is done under the hood.

The sensor is probably OK, just needs to be plugged in better. Don't be talked into replacing it.

Hope this helps!

Similar - all ABS, STC, check engine lights, car rough running


Since I do not understand your "won't drive", I will suggest this. If before this problem your ABS light would come on and than it would go out after you restart your engine. The problem might be the ABS module. If you can read the OBD error codes you likely will have P0722, P1618 and P1633. A message that says the transmission needs service. From what I have found on the web is replacing the ABS module will correct the problem. It appears that the ABS module has a life of 5 years to 80,000 miles on average. Volvo networks a lot of its computer information thru the ABS, thus a bad ABS can indicate a bad transmission. I am told that Auto Zone auto parts can read the error codes for you. But they may require you to being your car to their stop. You can also purchase your own ODB II reader from and auto parts store or Sears. Hope that helps.

Brake failure stop asap lights and stc/abs/brake/airbag light what does it mean and how bad is it?


I have had the same problem with my car for 3 months now. It is the ABS module that needs to be replaces. Ignore the stop ASAP light the brakes will still function as standard brakes. You just don't have ABS brake functionality or STC when those lights are on. Your car should still drive fine. Go on line and order a rebuilt ABS module for about $200 and the problem is solved. Hope that helps.

Brake, ABS,STC,CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON.


I had the same problem which was diagnosed incorrectly 3 times
Could be one of 2 things you may want to check
Have a tech read your codes
Have the ABS Control Module checked by a technician. If that is ok then make sure they look at the altenator
In my case, I was getting voltage spikes that were shorting out system controls -the ABS Control Module and the battery, etc. Once they put in a new altenator, the problem was fixed.
