So,<p>With an ABS module that is failing to the point that the ABS and Tracs warning lights are illuminated occasionally, would that situation also cause the CEL warning light to illuminate?<p>Thanks in advance for your replies.<br>1999 V70

In a 99, yes it can.<br>However,<B> if the CEL is on and the ABS/Tracs light off</B>, it would be for a different reason

Re: ABS module failure and CEL (castconcrete)

So, aside from not having antilock braking capability, is there any other downside to letting this problem go for awhile, like until I can afford an $800 module? My ABS and Tracs lights are on again and off again too. (When they're on it disables my cruise control.)

<B>It costs about $130 for a rebuild.</B><br>They're better than new when returned and guaranteed for a long time.<br>Either one of the two below is just fine, I've used both.<br>MM has a faster turnaround<p><A HREF="http://www.modulemaster.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.modulemaster.com</A><br>or<br><A HREF="http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha" TARGET="_blank">http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha</A>/<p>and yes, you can drive forever this way, you just won't have ABS (or cruise)

I used to have ABS module issues when I first owned my 99 S70. If I'd drive faster than a certain speed, ~100km/h, the ABS module would glitch, and I'd lose ABS, and electronic throttle as well. <p>It actually didn't bother me, it made the throttle more response, and the engine had a swifter retard as well, giving different shifting dynamics. A shut-off and restart of the engine resolved the issue. It eventually went away. The car sat for 4-5 months when I bought it, I think it just needed to clear up over time as I know I didnt have it replaced, and I haven't experienced the issue again in years.
