2000 Volvo S70 Problems

ABS Light Due to ABS Control Module Failure

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.

 

Door Lock Assemblies May Fail and Cause Locking/Unlocking Problems

One or more door lock assembly may fail and cause door locking/unlocking problems.

Master Window Switch Assembly May Fail

The master window switch may fail, allowing the windows to move in one direction and not the other.
