Greetings,

My 2007 XC90 is new to me as of a few months ago (had a p2 v70 before that needed a ETM and I sold it). 140k miles and I have been going through my list of things to fix. First it was a water pump leaking (wow what a repair bill), then other minor cosmetic stuff which I did myself. Last thing I am stuck on is the anti-skid service message. I get it about 10-15 seconds every time I start the car and it stays on until I shut the engine off.

Other symptoms include, the front wheels spinning even during moderate acceleration (not pedal to the floor, but just highway-ramp gogo).

I plan on taking it to a local specialist in the coming weeks, but I wanted to fish for any collective wisdom on here to be safe.

Thank you kindly for your help.

-Mike

The anti-skid warning indicates your awd system is not operating hence the wheel spin.

This is a very common issue and addressed in many threads. This is how I’d go about it. (Would be a helpful start to find out what codes are coming up)

1. Replace Clockspring/ steering angle sensor (steering column)
2. Replace yaw sensor (under passenger seat)
3. Replace/rebuild DEM and replace rear differential oil pump, filter , fluid etc

first thing I would do would be to check the AWD fuse in the back of the car. If it's blown, replace the fuse, if it blows again, unplug the DEM module (in front of the rear diff) replace the fuse and see if it stays. If the fuse blows when the DEM is plugged in, most likely your pump is the issue. In some cases, people have been able to pull it out and clean it, but the reality is on your generation of haldex, the same work is involved to get to the pump for repair or replacement.
