Having a problem with Abs module and Traction control is not a rarity on a Volvo. It is a common and expensive problem caused mostly by the Abs Module. The right way to fix this is to get a new one put in. It does not come cheap though, it’s over $400 for a new one and around $200 to rebuilt it.
The normal sequence for a faulty abs module is intermittent ABS lights for a period of time, then they’ll always be on, then in time the speedometer will drop out. Most of this will tend to happen after the car is driven and the module gets hot. If your ABS light suddenly came on one day and stayed on from that point on that typically is an external issue.
It’s important to remember that there are other parts of the ABS system, and like anything else problems do come up. A lot of these cars are approaching 20 years on the road, based on that it is not uncommon at this point to have an issue in the system outside of the ABS module itself.
