When you have both of those issues together it is the ABS control module. It processes the signal from the VSS- vehicle speed sensor and sends the signal to the speedo so it can indicate speed. A fault with it will cause all your issues

I have the same problem. I was wondering could it be the abs sensor? Did you fix it?

I have a 1999 Volvo S70, the speedometer works on and off mostly off and the brake, check engine aqnd ABS lights remain on.


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Check engine light on, Brake and ABS lights illuminate, speedometer fails and odometer goes to dashes. The problem is intermittent but happening daily, turning the car off and then back on seems to reset...


to make sure, you would have to have the vehicle scanned with Volvos' Vida scanner. However, the most common problem is usually the control unit.

My Volvo 94 850 odometer stop working, I bought


There are actually two gears that you need to replace, a large one and then smaller one that rides inside it. You can purchase them both at www.fcpgroton.com These can also sometimes affect the operation of your speedometer. Do you by chance have an ABS and TRACS light on? If so the speedometer issue may be related to your ABS controller.

Volvo abs lights stays on


Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

Speedometer and Odometer not working , Break Light and Abs light on


Most likely you have a check engine light on also. And if you have codes pulled it will be 0500, speed sensor. Replace the one on the rear axle and all should be good. Oh and don,t forget to have code cleared.

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.

your ABS module (board) is crack and a good fixman could check that to fix or change it
