Question about 1998 Volvo S70
It's possible that you have a dirty or somewhat damaged ABS/wheel speed sensor. These sensors are either on the wheel hubs near the rotors, or (at least in the rear) possibly on either side of the differential. Being under the car, they're prone to damage from the elements, from road debris, etc. You may have a wire or connector on a sensor damaged. A scan of your car's fault codes should reveal whether it's a wheel speed sensor or something else though. On my Audi, a scan tells me which sensor is faulted, and this could be the case on your Volvo as well. Have the codes scanned at AutoZone (it's free, vs paying labor at a dealership) and post the resulting codes (if any) in another post here. From there, we can likely figure out the problem. Also, check to make sure you have enough brake fluid - if you're low, it could cause a malfunction in the ABS system.
