Check engine light on. Dealer verified problem.
I noticed that Check Engine Light is on.continually with the little yellow icon . I had my car serviced. about one month ago radiator flush, oil change. I have extended warranty a little nervous about finding the right repair shop. I am fearful that If I return to Volvo Lovering. I will really be taken for a ride
Starter engages then stops and lights come on. Message window under speedometer says: Brake System Service Required After the dust settles and things stop flashing the Check Engine light and the ABS light are on. I haven't fixed the problem; it is Saturday, the repair shops are closed and I really would like to at least be able to start my car.
misc abs and brake system failures and spedo - tach - temp gagaes stopping, a/c stops, cruise control stops car drives OK Lifting battery cable and re-connecting sometinmes helps worse in warmer weatyer - it was fine all winter and just returned

Intermittently brake and power steering warning light come on, and car sometimes disables itself. Looking for a solution, please help. I have a 1999 Volvo s80

Intermittent problem that renders the car undriveable. Car starts, error lights illuminate, ABS fault error message appears and then the car stalls. The ABS system has been checked and there is no mechanical issue. The dealership service technicians believe that one of the computer modules has gone bad but they cannot isolate the error to a specific module. Replacing all of the modules would cost more than the car is worth at this point.

check engine light service required and low performance
ABS lights coming on intermittently for quite a while. Front & rear brakes repaired and checked fully working. Now Check Engine light coming on because ABS module not communicating with engine module. ABS light still on only occasionally.... Pricey repair to replace ABS control module and requires flashing done at only a Volvo dealership.

Check engine light on, sporadic performance issues, message center warning also sporadic. Car will stall (very dangerous, hard steering, little brake action). This happens after a long, continuous drive, then slowing down. No diagnosis yet, will update when dealer sees car today.
YEP, me too. I ordered replacment part from ebay, attempting to replace old one tonight myself. The housing is behind the air filter. I'll give update after I attempt!
