I recently replaced the ABS/STC computer module on my '99 S80. The car has 92,600 miles on it. Now the "transmission service required" light came on. I tried to reset the warning light by pulling the fuse #24 on the left side of the steering wheel.....DON't DO THIS! As a result, I now have the "SRS Airbag service" light on as well. I took my car to the Dealership, and they told me the transmission was on it's way out. The car seems to be driving fine. I scheduled an appointment to get a second opinion about the transmission..... hell...... i'm just going to drive the damn thing until it leaves me sitting....... and...then..... I might just get out and start walking, because I can't afford to keep up with the dashboards demands.
I'm begining to think that all these messages that keep populating on my dashboard are false..... My mother has a '95 Volvo C70, w/198,000 miles on it. I bought my used S80 hoping for the same good luck....... No such luck. I'm hoping Volvo will tap into some of these forums and start paying attention to the poor quality they are rolling out of their factories. Just reading over this forum is rediculous. I believe the older models where the true "Volvo's for LIfe"...... Not the Volvo's of today!
