Re: Traction control & ABS lights both just came on (jlj3394)
That happened to me in stop and go traffic one year ago. Once the brakes cooled, the lights went away. Finally the ABS light stayed on, indicating the inevitable failure of the ABS module. I had it replaced by Victor (the 2nd link) and have had no problems since.
Or you can try fixing it yourself. It's easy to do; the hardest part is getting the unit open. Also, you should be able to get the four screws off with a small six-point socket if you don't have the right bit.<p><A HREF="http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12651" TARGET="_blank">http://www.matthewsvolvosite.c...12651</A>
<br>I did mine through ModuleMaster earlier this year. If you really like playing with a soldering gun, I guess you could DIY it, but either of these two places do such a great job, it's just fire-and-forget. Mine was $135 with 1-day turnaround, overnighted and they threw in a pack of stainless replacement bolts. MM gives a 5-yr. warranty. It's slam dunk, the only hard part being wiggling your hand in behind there to get the bolts out. I did buy the torx socket for removal.<p>There's a slim outside chance it could be a dirty wheel sensor that could be corrected by cleaning, but as JRL said these modules have a 100% failure rate, so it's likely the module or it will be soon. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
