The "leaning triangle" light is the light signifying there is a fault with the traction system (STC) a quick scan with a scan tool will tell you exactly what the fault is.
The only other triangle light on these cars is the triangle with the circle and the exclamation point. Which is either Orange or Red depending on the severity of the issue. And what you described sounds like the STC light to me.

Hope this helps.

Why does the dstc light stays on the dashboard?


The DSTC system by Volvo means Dynamic Stability & Traction Control, and is the equivalent of the ESP system (means the Electronic Stability Program). If the DSTC lights on the dashboard permanently the DSTC system is faulty. You must access the DSTC Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by DSTC ECU, in other words reset the DSTC system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

My dashboard lights went oout and indicator lights


I think there is a fuse for that in your fuse panel. check your owners manual for the location of the fuses and I think it may be burnt out. Cheap fix if so :)

Want to know what a light means,and can i fix it myself


pg26b.jpg pg26c.jpg Risk for slippery conditions
If the warning light comes on and stays on, this indicates that traction with the road surface is reduced. Drive with caution. If this light flashes, it indicates that the DSTC system is working to restore traction to one or more of the wheels. Reduced Stability Control
If the green indicator light in the DSTC button goes out, DSTC has reduced effect because the system had been switched off with the button in the center console. The text DSTC SPIN CONTROL OFF will be displayed in the text window.

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


This is a known problem although Volvo will not admit it. The dash needs to come out (10 min job) and sent away for a simple repair. Total cost is about £150 but you will need to get the SRS warning that will be showing in the LED message display cancelled by a Volvo dealer after the dash has come back. Don't try a scrapyard dashboard the ECUs have IP addresses. I used a company in Kent to do the repair. Get onto Google there may be a repairer more local.

Volvo S80 1999 Dashboard Light Problem


Is it in the center of the dash or in the right corner? The one on the right is for the ABS. The one in the center is a general message. Using the read function on the signal stalk there will be an explanation of the light.
