00 S70 GLT All warning lights on

Post by neworleans » Sat Oct 04, 2014 8:20 am

Hello friends,

I am having a problem with my car today,the ETS light has been on for years that is not new but all the other lights on the dash came on today while driving. The Brake - ABS - Arrow flashing, and the check engine lights. The odometer doesn't show the mileage and when push the gas while driving, the speedometer doesn't move but RPM does, also car runs in higher RPM than normal.

The ABS light would come on and go off prior to this maybe a couple of times a week or so, today before this happened, the brake light and the ABS light came on together for a minute or so then went off, after 10 minutes, all the other lights came on like in the pics.

What do you guys think is the problem?

Thank you in advance...

A bad ABS module would account for much of it but typically not the brake light. Have you checked the brake fluid level?

The blanked out odometer isn't really the norm with a bad ABS module either. Have you tried to jiggle the key while it is acting up? A bad ignition switch can also cause some of your problems.

I really think you have more than one thing going on here but you really need a DICE scan to get to the bottom of all of it.

My guess is that you have multiple problems. The ETS that you already know about. The ABS that you have been ignoring. Then newly, could be 1 of 3 things. Bad battery cable, bad ignition switch or bad alternator.

Rockauto sell new Genuine ignition switches under the Airtex-Wells brand however they are a genuine Volvo switch made in W. Germany. They save you around $19 off the average blue box item.

Just be sure your car has the older style switch used on 850s as the 2000 model was a changeover year. Check the FCP Euro site for the VIN breakup for the 2000 MY.

If you have the newer style it's unlikely this is the issue.

Thank you guys, I am going to start with the ABS module repair, since this has been an issue, to me it seems like finally failed. Ordered my E5 socket, couldn't find it at Autozone and Sears. I should be able to send the unit this week and install it next week. I will send it to midwest as Lee recommended. Will update you guys then. I also read somewhere that a faulty abs module sometimes throws the ETS code, maybe that will solve the ETS light issue as well.

chrafael: I will scan it and post the codes here today sometime. Thanks again.

Hello again,

Here are the codes

P0422: Main catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P1633: Accelera. Pedal Pos. sensor 2 signal too low
P1618: Glow plug/heater relay circ. short to B+
*P0722

I used two different OBD 2 scanners and both gave the same codes but one of them showed an additional code of P0722. After erasing all codes, no warning lights on now and the odometer shows the mileage. I drove one block after this and everything seemed fine.

I can't help with interpreting your codes, I just happen to have a laptop and vida that I don't use because my car is a '98 and I probably don't live far from you. Also CARQUEST part no. 648667 Powerbuilt is for a set of ten E sockets that most stores should have in stock.
