Volvo S70 Problems
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.
One or more door lock assembly may fail and cause door locking/unlocking problems.
The master window switch may fail, allowing the windows to move in one direction and not the other.
Volvo S70 Questions
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
Any help would be appreciated. Have already replaced the MAF
