2000 S70 Engine, Traction, ABS and Brake light on

Post by Were Read 2 Def »

I have a 2000 Volvo S70 base model. It has 121,000 miles on it. Just recently the check engine light came on, then ABS, traction control and brakes lights. They all come and go now, but nothing seems to be wrong with the car that I can tell. I read on an older forum that it could be the ABS module. Any suggestions?

More than likely, more so if it's intermittent or based on hot/cold. Usually you're just going to get the abs/traction lights intermittently for period of time then light joins in.

Get those codes read do you can find out exactly what's bring reported

Get the actual P code, not the generic description

If you to fix Volvos by symptom, budget 1000-1500 for part throwing. Diagnosis saves Dollars.
