    Default Abs/anti-skid service required

    hello to all, this is my first post hope and hope I posted it in the right place.
    ABS/ANTI-SKID SERVICE REQUIRED
    I have on my console the ABS light on as soon as I start the car. And as soon as I turn a corner the anti-skid light turns on. Does anyone have an opinion on what I should do. Also was told that if I have to change the computer for the ABS that it was only a dealer item.

    Thanks

    Would help to know what year your car is
    Who told you the ABS module is a dealer only item?
    About $100 to repair it and when done, it's better than an original as they FIX the problem.
    If your car is newer than an 01 then that's another matter

    2004's don't have the problem with ABS modules, like '98-'02.

    You have a different issue, get it diagnosed correctly before you spend money on an ABS module.

    That sentence there makes my think you have a bad Steering Angle Sensor/Clock Spring. You'll need to check codes to confirm.

    Default Problem solved, ABS ring gear question

    Got my diagnostic done by my garage this week. They found my error code to be ABS sensor front right wheel.
    So went off to my local Volvo dealer and purchased a new ABS sensor. It took me no more than 20 minutes to install the new ABS sensor. Then took the car around the block and the Abs/anti-skid service required code reset itself. On further inspection of the ABS components, I found the ABS sensor slightly grinded down and found a crack in the ABS ring gear.
    Question, can I continue to use the same ring gear or will I have to replace it soon.
    I also turned the brake disc several times to see if the ring gear was rubbing the ABS sensor; I did not see or hear any rubbing.

    wurthman,

    thanks for posting the fix to your problem.

    we need more original posters to do the same so we all learn on what fixed the original problem.

    just wanted to add my experience/fix for others

    2007 XC70 33K mi.

    i had been getting intermittent 'anti-skid temporarily off' and 'anti-skid service required' messages for about 2 weeks. They would come on at start, sometimes they would go off during the drive, sometimes on a subsequent start.

    Volvo dealership upgraded software, and diagnosed a steering angle sensor fault. replaced the Constant Contact Ring in the steering wheel.
