Brake Pedal Sensor Replacement – 2001 V70XC

Brake Pedal Sensor Replacement

Brake Pedal Sensor Replacement


What would be the casualty of a failed brake pedal sensor?
It is showing up in ECM trouble codes.
It is a daily driver in rough winter.
Should I replace it with Volvo part number 9441116 for $92?


The cruise control will cease to work as that part’s major role is to assure cruise will still go off with brake if the brake light switch fails.

Pump brakes until pedal is hard to dump booster vacuum or the or ring on sensor will get sucked inside booster as you pull it out.

2001 V70XC – Brake Pedal Sensor Replacement

Mix two parts wagon, one part SUV, and one part Orvis hunting outfitter together to create a hybrid vehicle tailormade for snow-belt family vacations. While the first-generation Cross Country grew from the 850/V70 wagon, the new XC was engineered as a distinct model from the get-go. The result is a more capable vehicle that improves on its predecessor by being almost 4 in. wider, 2 in. taller, having 2 in. more ground clearance, increased load capacity, and gaining only 10 lb in the process. Best of all, the better-equipped base XC is priced $2000 lower than last year’s model.

Quite capable in poor traction situations, the 197-hp XC utilizes a viscous clutch to distribute power from primarily the front wheels to the rear, as needed. On a drive through rainwashed Vermont dirt roads, the SUV-shaming 7.5-in. ground clearance enabled the XC to traverse fallen trees that would’ve torn undercarriages from a lesser vehicle. For the less adventurous, there will be a two-wheel-drive version offered in ’02.

Safety features abound with dual-stage front airbags, side airbags, inflatable side curtain, whiplash protection system, and anti-lock brakes offering standard protection. Safe, fun, and capable, the Volvo XC is an appealing alternative to the SUV mainstream.
