intermittent brake, ABS, transmission warning light

Post by wb23 » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:01 am

My car is a 1999 V70.
I get brake, ABS and transmission (the blinking arrow) warning lights. Usually they go away by themselves. Usually, this is also accompanied by my speedometer going to zero and odometer displaying dashes.
I suspect the ABS module, any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.

ABS module. Exactly the same symptoms I had with my 2000 V70 base a couple of months ago. I got a re-built unit from Matty and now all is good.
