Another Anti-Skid Question

Help, Advice, Owners' Discussion and DIY Tutorials on Volvo XC90s. The XC90 proved to be very popular, and very good for Volvo's sales numbers, since its introduction in model year 2003 (North America).

Be sure if you replace the clock spring that you are aware if your vehicle has DTSC or not, there are two different units, one for each.

I have purchased used and tested clock spring units on EBay for half the price of new with much success.

Fantastic advice, MrBreeze. I just completed the purchase from FCP Euro. I looked around eBay for a bit, but I didn't find anything that I felt comfortable with, given my lack of experience with these things. I am excited to the max at the prospect of finally solving the Anti Skid challenge. Now I am looking into the best option for calibrating the new unit to my vehicle; I have read that I must bring it to the dealer, as they have the necessary software. Can anyone please tell me if this will be my only option? Are there perhaps other, less expensive options? Best forum and community ever! Thank you!

Update: I just returned from having the steering angle sensor replaced and calibrated from my local Volvo specialist. Unfortunately, it did not resolve the Anti-Skid problem, though the mechanic did confirm that the sensor was bad and needed to be replaced anyway (I replaced it with a Genuine Volvo AWD specific sensor). At this point the yaw rate sensor and steering angle sensor have been replaced, so perhaps I have isolated the problem a bit. After replacing the steering angle sensor, I had the mechanic pull the blown 7.5amp rear fuse (#23) and replace it with a fresh one, which blew immediately. Does this sound like a bad Haldex perhaps? Cheers and thank you!

Yes. Bad pump. Follow these steps to confirm.
