Any Volvo chaps on here?

Recommended Posts

Volvo S60 2006 2.4D5 Auto has jusy flashed up anti skid service required, does anyone have any ideas before it goes on the computer? Are they notorious for anythig?

 

thanks

Andy

I’m assuming it’s clear at standstill & comes on at speed.

If it happens at various speeds then most likely ABS ring is cracked and slips hence the light coming on at various speed - this is a Volvo regular. 

Occasionally ABS sensor.

Also occasionally the ABS pump.

Read & clear the code, as long as it’s the same sensor coming back faulty then it’s not the pump and although it could obviously be the sensor it’ll most likely be the ring. They love a ring, do Volvos.

does it need to go to Volvo/Specialist or will usual garage gear read the codes?

Hi, I have just fixed one with the same problem, turned out to be the squib behind the steering wheel, got a second hand one off ebay and dead easy to fit.

That’s a hell of a find,  I would have never ended up looking there I am curious as to what pointed you to the squib?

I have had quite a few S60's over the years and my wife ran two until 200k, chime back with the codes and I do my best as others to hlp.

There is a software upgrade for this....assuming it ain't been done yet.....gives larger error margins on the sensor behind the steering wheel.

Fixes most, but not all.

Just had a text from a customer about an old 2003 Volvo V70 I sold him, he's had the anti skid service required message come on, anyone care to take a guess as to what the most likely cause is? 

Also, do you think I should let his local garage look at it or try to get it back for my chap to look at? 

Cheers!

Defo get it back to you, letting someone else look at it will get heavy.

Reluctor ring, pump, sensors, brake light switch, wiring, fuse, sas, can comm error from all other modules, bearing / hub nut loose, tyre mismatch etc etc etc etc etc .....................

There is probably around 300 different faults it might be :lol: .......................

No point guessing, get it plugged in to a decent generic and see what that says ;)

But guessing is always more reassuringly expensive:P

My better half ran late S60's for years all with Red Dwarf miles on them, but one of them had an intermittent ABS problem and, for the life of me, I just couldn't resolve it.

It had to go into the local Volvo indie.

I didn't spend any dough on it but was getting to dead end and, thinking ABS ECU dry joint issue? 

It was loosing the nsf ABS sensor output totally at random, and hence bringing up loads more lights, yet everything checked out OK:angry: 

Ended up with the scanner on it data logging when we went on holiday in that S60, yes it pissed me off that much. All this just trying to find a pattern....that f*cking ABS output never dropped out in over 700 miles, until the first 200 yards into the first school run after we got home:D

So, admitting defeat and fearing the worst I dropped that bastard off to the indie at 9am. Get a phone call to say all done come and collect it at 9:30.....new uprated torque bolt with threadlock, and an hours labour job done. 

.....every day a school day but what a stupid CV joint design, don't touch Volvos anymore unless older models, hateful things build wise.

Think this was subject to a recall. I had CV joint problem on my S60 at about 3yrs and sure it was done for free but might have squeezed into warranty period. Mine made small noise when reversing.
