Hi Fellas!

I am really in need of sound advice (and a real Volvo expert and not guy at O’Reilly’s who just wants to get in my ).

Ok- I bought my 2000 Volvo S70 SE year as a way to eliminate car payments so I pay off my student loans for awhile. It was buy this junk or get on a pole. And didn’t raise a pole

So here I am, one year later, a car that is so tempramental I’m which one of us is the real … About 6 months ago the ABS and Check lights would come on now and again, but usually, they just come on briefly. two months ago they just on. The car started to shake pretty bad if I was at a light and would kinda when I gave it some

I took it to my local dealership and were a lot of signals that coming back to them they hooked it up to the computer, so cleared it out so that they identify exactly what was Two weeks later the ABS light and engine light came on, and they explained that I a new ASB Control Module – would cost me close to The damn car is only worth

I googled ABS Control Module and got the to kinda wedge a piece of between it and the box next to it (I got the idea this website ). It was much better for about two weeks, but now my car is really acting

Now, the car barely wants to and really whines before it to actually ignite. I sometimes to push the gas to rev it up a bit. Three it has stopped while I was driving from a stop position) and died in the middle of the intersection. I to shut it off and start it again. – and this is the scary it seemed like it didn’t to brake when I hit the brakes and I smelled a strong gas odor.

She and sputtered until I put her in park and it was in park I saw the gauge on the transmission go from 1 to 8 — AND I WAS IN PARK NO FEET ON ANY PEDALS! After I back from my appointment, she up fine. The trouble is, the damn car shaking again just as I was into my driveway.

I called a buddy of mine who it may be a throttle body issue but from my research – has nothing to do with the ABS stuff.

I it sounds like my poor car is a piece of $#!t, but it’s — and she’s all I got. I get squared away with ole Mae, I really want to her. I like my car and she looks good — but as you men know there are a lot of hot girls out here messed up insides, and my poor is one of them.

PLEASE HELP. I need to know what to or how I can do this myself. I’m a recently graduated young and Im surrounded my incompetent men who know about cars – Volvos.

Any ideas are appreciated!!

You have 2 problems here.

The ABS has NOTHING to do how the car runs (quite likely, the shaking of the car corresponds to the ABS light the ABS light is caused by cracks in the of the module, which are opening up as the car And, yes, you need to the module. HOWEVER, you don’t to pay $2k.

There is a gentleman who them better than new for than $200.

And. while searching for that I came across this So $100 for the service. You do have to and mail it, but the instructions are right on that site.

You can drive the car without the module, you will have brakes, not antilocks, so be careful.

Your is on the right track on the poor issue. The 2000 S70 has a notoriously bad MAF (just like a notoriously bad ABS However, it also has a poorly ETM, which is quite a bit expensive.

Where did you get the car diagnosed. Was it a shop? It doesn’t sound it. Next time, you need to go to a dealer or specialist.

It takes specific and expensive software to read all the codes on your

The first thing you can try is unhooking battery for 30 mins. During time, also unhook MAF. If, upon rehooking up battery and starting the car, it better, then you need a new

Again, you can drive your car way, but don’t do it for long. It run with an improper Air-Fuel causing poor mileage and conditions for your plugs, O2 and catalytics.

If it doesn’t clear up, you are very likely in need of an For a temporary fix, check out video. And, just the ABS module, there are places will rebuild the ETM for far cheaper replacing it (not to mention it also requires a trip to the to code the new unit to your so avoid that and have rebuilt).
