1999 Volvo C70 ProblemsConvertible Tops May Have Problems With Micro-Switches/Potentiometers
The convertible top may have problems with the micro-switches and potentiometers that help control the raising and lowering of the top.
The electronic throttle module (ETM) has had a high failure rate, which can cause engine performance issues and check engine light illumination. Volvo has extended the warranty to 10 years/200,000 miles on the ETM.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) Control Unit has a high failure rate. When this fault occurs, the ABS light will illuminate and codes may be stored indicating a problem with the ABS Pump Motor, or Wheel Speed Sensors, but the problem is the ABS Control Module.
Other symptoms may include an illuminated Check Engine and transmission shift light. and the speedometer may stop working as well.
Note: The brake system will operate normally however during a panic stop the Anti Lock Brakes will not work and the wheels may lock-up, causing a lack of vehicle control under these situations.
