2000 Volvo S80 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
I have had other issues with this car before, but it has finally gone loco on me. Started with the typical Service Engine light that comes on for Volvos all the time (oil change or didn't turn the gas cap closed 16 times) but that usually goes away. Not this time. Now it has started with a computer message to service the SRS system, and the airbag light is on too. It also has the ABS light flashing on and off with no rhyme or reason. The brake light does the same, but is accompanied by the computer message that the brakes have failed and to stop safely immediately (the brakes still work fine BTW). The clock also gets lines through its display on and off.
The first time this all started the, I had just used the turn indicator to make a left. Afterward the blinker indicator on the dash would not stop and the outside lights continued on too. I decided to pull the fuse to keep from making other drivers crazy and the outside lights stopped, but the dash indicator sped up. Alll this was after pulling over and restarting the car several times.
After getting home, I checked all fuses and they are all good. The next morning, the indicators all stopped working completely, the washer stopped working but the wipers are OK, and the radio controls in steering wheel stopped working too. Oh, and a tiny warning ding comes and goes. Sometimes continuing even when car is off and keys are out.
Do I need and exorcist or just put her down?
