2005 Volvo S60 ProblemsRadiator may crack without visible leak
As the vehicle ages, the plastic end tanks on the radiator may crack and cause a coolant leak. Because of the placement of the radiator, the leak may not be visible in the engine bay or underneath the vehicle. A radiator replacement would be required to fix this condition.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light and/or other dash warning lights may illuminate due to a failed ABS Control Module. Replacement of the failed module is generally required to correct this concern.
The automatic transmission may develop shifting problems and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to internal component failure and/or software issues. It is always best to be sure the transmission control module has the latest software installed when any major transmission repair is performed.
