Re: P1054, ABS, and traction light

That dtc ties into the abs , it's basically a faulty speed sensor code. With a faulty abs module on a 99-01 you'll get an abs-0011 then an abs-0010 as your first two codes with a faulty module. It's possible to have a crusty tone ring but that will usually trip an abs-0012 and there's also the possi...

Re: Electronics Faulty. ABS Module?

You're misinterpreting what I'm saying. A 96-98 car will accept any 96-98 module. The car doesn't not know what part it is supposed to have whether it's Tracs or not. The same goes for 99-2000.

Put 12v to the pump motor AND check resistance. Don't forget you have two fuses for the system in separate boxes.

If your trans is going Into limp mode (flashing arrow and 3rd gear starts) when the speedometer drops out then that's the fault of the abs module. Rough running isn't associated though

Re: S70 ABS Light Triggering CEL Topic is solved

Almost every module fails. Speed sensors themselves almost never fail, the wiring going to them can due to age maybe 10% of the time. Sometimes you can have a faulty module and a wiring fault at the same time.

The older they get the more likely things are going to degrade.

The tcu gets its speed signal from the abs module. You'll lose the speedometer, odometer and go into limp mode. If it's an issue of just not wanting the abs then pull the little harness off the module that goes to the abs pump and that will disable it without losing everything else.

Re: 1996 850 Tracs Light/ABS

Is it just the TRACS OFF light or is the ABS light coming on with it? The TRACS off light itself will only come on my itself when the traction control has been actively engaged for a set amount of time, it does this so the brakes don't overheat apparently. If your module is bad and causing the tract...

Re: ABS

It isn't nearly as difficult as a passat, not even a tenth as difficult. I pulled one of those once and wasn't happy about it.

No, they don't recalibrate. It's early 90's technology, it just operates off a set range of values, if something goes wrong the lights come on.

Re: 1996 850 no speedo

The VSS on the trans doesn't feed into the module on your car. The abs module sends a speed signal based on what it reads from the wheel speed sensors to the cluster.

Something somewhere is wrong.

Abs codes won't trigger the CEL on a 98. Your codes are fairly easy.....your air pump is shot, you have an evap system leak and your temp sensor might me bad.

No personal experience with torque, but if codes are there and set it's going to display them.

What he said... Module only and make sure the harness is seated properly. Don't just look at it, reseat it. It's also possible that you could have an external fault.

Nope, it doesn't have any bearing on engine management. The only time the abs has any say in the matter is when the traction control kicks in and retards the throttle.

Re: Who has the most miles on factory engine?

I bought a 98 s70 with 233k on it about 5 years ago for parts. After getting it home I found out all it needed was an intercooler hose, so I replaced that and did a bunch of other things. I sold it to a coworker for 1400ish as it had a salvage title, he has about 300k on it as of now. The irritating...

Re: 98 V70 non-turbo Sluggish

I've had two NA's, one auto and one stick. The auto was a dog off the line and didn't really get it's legs until it hit 50. The stick is pleasant to drive, not fast but you can make it move.

I get less overall mileage with the NA because the pedal is always to the floor.

Re: 2000 V70-XC dash lights for ABS traction control on

His abs module is likely fine, it will shut down on its own and trigger codes if the voltage is too low or too high. In any strange voltage situation it's the first thing to take a break.

Re: 1996 Volvo 850 R speedometer sometimes stops working

I don't think it's your module. I haven't seen one yet that will not send a speed signal and not throw codes.

I've dealt with a handful of people with cluster issues but it's almost always the 98 clusters.

Same deal with the jizz on the end of the dipstick when you pull it out. I've driven my na s70 less than 100 miles all winter, it has it. I need to drive it, but the roads are all heaved and I don't want to bend a wheel.

I think it would be right around $89. On your car you would test it by getting the abs codes read at a shop or dealer.

What Lee said, that noise is normal when TRACS engages. The only time I've found it to be semi-useful is when making a right hand turn and there's ice on the right hand side. The rest of the time it's mostly useless.
