I was driving along this morning, nothing out of the ordinary, and the car just died. I coasted to a stop on the side of the road. A message appeared stating:<p>EL.SUBSYSTEM NEEDS SERVICE<br>ANTI-SKID NEEDS SERVICE<p>I phoned Volvo Road Assistance and had it towed to a local dealer (Barrier). They are looking at it but nothing yet. Anyone have this experience or heard of something similar?

irony:<p>a system which relies on electronics is able to determine that it has an electrical failure. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

CEM. REM, SUM, ECM etc. The CEM monitors the health of the rest. It is also within the pass compartment so in theory lives better and could outlast others.

Re: (JimLill)

Well, I had about the same thing happen to my S60R a couple of days ago. While driving along the anti-skid system temporarily off (or unavailable) lit up in the information screen, and all the gauges went dead. Pulled it off the road, and motor died. After an errand or two, and getting my wife to ride back up, I restarted the car. It worked fine, but flashed the anti-skid off, then the service transmission and the danger yellow triangle. <br>I was able to cruise along to the dealer, about 40 minutes. <p>Previously, I started it in the garage, it stalled itself out (automatic, not stick) and lit up the idiot lights. The dealer thought it might be a software problem and reloaded the newest stuff. They were not sure it was that, but the car ran fine so we picked it up. <p>My dealer made a few software changes, then kept the car for a test drive. It died on him that evening. Now they are replacing the central computer system in the car. <p>The car is bone stock, with about twenty thousand miles. It's a 2004. <p>What happened to your car?<p>Regards,<br>Rich
