Well, it depends on what needs done! The other forum is REALLY wanting me to get the timing belt done. Other than that, I have had the CEL/SES light, ABS , and another light come on a few times, yet also shut off upon car turning off. It accelerated weird twice, and the speedo has "dropped out" about three times. Other times, it works perfectly. Kind of strange!Nice! What's it need, if anything? $2k is a pretty decent price for that. Mileage isn't too bad either.
Are you much of a do-it-yourselfer? There's a lot you can do to get the car reliable and leak-free to provide many more years of Volvo service.
This is not true. I've seen (on several cars) where the front wheel speed sensors fail. Either the wiring cracks inside the sensor or inside the wiring insulation, rendering the sensor useless. It is almost always the front sensors though. Simply way to test using a resistance meter both on the sensor to make sure it's still good and on the wiring.It's rarely - if ever - a failed ABS sensor. Certainly possible, and I'd definitely check the sensor wires in each wheel well just to make sure they weren't chopped, but at 100k, that ABS module is toast. They all will do it eventually, just a matter of time.
As in my PM a 96-01 ABS unit has nothing to do with an 04 (which is usually fine)Burnout8488 and others, can you provide a little more detail and "what typically goes wrong" and causes the ABS light to come on? It it always a sims connection break as you describe or can the module fail. The light just went on my friend's 2.5 FWD at 100k.
