2000 Volvo S70 ProblemsABS 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.
The master window switch may fail, allowing the windows to move in one direction and not the other.
Many complaints have been reported regarding Volvo S70 transmission shifting issues. Long shift times between gear shifts, hard shifting, hard downshifting and a loss of transmission operation all together to name a few.
If the issue is minor, a transmission software update may fix this issue so if available, the software should be updated before any repairs are made.
There are several technical service bulletins (TSB's) available from Volvo that address these shifting issues and they should be consulted by the repair shop during the automatic transmission diagnostic process.
Regular servicing of the transmission fluid can help with preventing transmission failure, but not in all cases. Follow the suggested fluid replacement interval recommended by Volvo. You will find this in your owners manual, or find it here: http://bit.ly/Volvo_Owners_Manuals
2000 Volvo S70 QuestionsWhen pulling out there's a loud clunk seems to be under drivers seat any clue what it could be? (1 answer)
I am attempting to fix erratic shifting after my car heats up as I continue to read that shift solenoids tend to fail due to heat. I dont know the difference between the two but I dont want to replace something I dont need.
Thanks for any feedback
