    I have dash lights that come on and off all the time. Break failure,check engine, traction control. What is going on? I don't even know if the car is safe. I think it runs great but what do I know?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
