1999 Volvo S80 ProblemsTransmission Shifting Issues Due to Internal Failure and/or Software Issues
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.
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.
"SRS airbag service required URGENT" warning message appeared after I jump started the car (with some arcing -- battery was very dead). Internet research confirmed this is common problem -- also happens when negative (ground) wire is not disconnected when working on sound system or air conditioning. Must be taken to dealer to reset the warning message (Volvo proprietary bus message). My cost was $60.
