The abs light bulb has burned out (just like a regular light bulb). These bulbs can be replaced easily, you just remove the upper portion of the dashboard by removing the retaining screws and then you will see the gauge cluster underneath. The gauge cluster will unclip and unplug and then you can replace the bulbs which are burned out. It is very common for older cars to have dash bulbs burn out.

SOURCE: ABS WARNING LIGHT ON VOLVO V70 1997

ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been an overvoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle.

SOURCE: replace brake light 850 volvo wagon

It is really easy, and requires no tools. There is a flush panel inside the car behind the lights, using fingernails pry it off, then all the bulbs are visible and quickly changed out.

Abs dash light on Volvo 850 is on, whats wrong ?


Volvo has had a lot of trouble with ABS control units. Yours will most likely need to be replaced. You can either replace it with an exchange unit from a Volvo parts supplier or send yours to BBA reman. in MA for repair.

Hi i have an 850 t5 estate the speedo is not working and neither is the odometer? car is a 1996


It's your abs control module. Remove your abs control module and send it out to be rebuilt. It should cost you less than $100. Check out the offerings on Ebay.

96 volvo 850 speedometer somtimes works then it drops to 0


Two questions: Is your odometer working? If not then it's probably a broken gear by the stepper motor that Emissionwiz mentioned. Is your ABS and/or TRACS light on intermittently or constantly. If so that is a common sign your ABS control module has gone or is going bad. This usually happens before the speedometer starts acting up. Either one of these will start intermittently and finally end up with the speedometer not functioning at all, and both are pretty common failures with this model.

1997 Volvo GLT850 Tracks light remains on, can't get out of park without using override.I think it's the sensor but don't know how to replace.


Check and make sure that the brake lights are working. It may be the brake light switch.There is a possibility that there are two separate issues though. You can have a bad ignition switch also.After starting the car move the key slowly towards the off position or wiggle the key and see if the abs/tracs light goes off.
