Re: 1996 850 ABS issues

Thanks for the information. I found Module Repair Service on Ebay. 45.00 lifetime warranty. I have never used them but will give them a try.

1996 850 ABS issues

The ABS light comes on and the brakes make a noise. I pulled codes 30 31 40 and 41 which indicate the wheel sensors for the left and right rear. Just want to make sure it is not my ABS Control Module. I used a Genisys EVO diagnostic tool to diagnose the codes. If it was the control module I presume ...

Re: Radio code

I did some searching and determined that I need to call a dealer and provide them with the serial number for the radio to get the code.

Radio code

A friend wrecked his 850 and gave me the radio a few years ago. I now want to install it but lost the code. Is there anyway to find it?

Re: 96 Volvo wagon control arm replacement

I used a floor jack and lifted the wheel hub so the center would be in the middle of the bottom of the door and the bottom of the door frame as stated above so hopefully I got it pretty close.

Re: 96 Volvo wagon control arm replacement

I thought for sure that we had a writeup on control arms but we sure don't. I would like to say that it is just 3 bolts and you are done but it is never that easy. The Haynes manual is pretty good there but I guess I need to do a writeup on the next one that I change. That doesn't help you now. Wit...

Testing the MAF

How do you test a MAF sensor on a 87 240? While driving the car it begins to run rough then dies at a stop.. it will not restart. I disconnect the MAF then reconnect it. It starts but runs very rough.. make it to a parking lot and call a tow truck to get me home.. I take off the MAF to spray it off ...

Re: 96 OBDII code computer reset?

I replaced the air pump and diverter valve. The pump works so I do not know what could be wrong. The plastic line to the diverter valve was plugged up so i replaced it with a rubber vacuum line.

97 Volvo 850 radio

The Radio on my 97 850 has good sound from one speaker only. Sound does come out of the other three but not good at all. It appears that the radio is at fault. I am curious to know if anyone else has experienced this problem with the radios.

Where is the SAS valve on a 96 850? Is there another name for this valve? I have water in my air pump and I understand the cause is this valve.

Drive pattern to reset OBD2 incomplete components.

I cleared the OBD 2 codes on my 96 Volvo 850 Wagon. Drove it 100 plus miles and still have the incomplete notations on certain components. I understand that there is a drive pattern to reset everything. Does anyone know of this drive pattern?
