2005 Volvo V70 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.

ABS Control Module May Fail

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.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed MAF Sensor

The MAF sensor is prone to failure and will turn on the Check Engine Light when it fails.

125,000 miles on the clock and in that time only had to replace 2 lightbulbs and the battery (all normal wear and tear). Best car I've ever had, and we do put it through it's paces with some very long drives. No problems whatsoever.
