2004 Volvo S60 has ~ 51,000K “Anti-Skid Service Required”
July '09-Jan '11: Intermittent loss of power steering/stall that began to increase in frequency. Usually when decelerating into a turn. Volvo dealer initially dx as “dirty throttle module” Independent mechanic could not recreate stall/problem. Noted abs / brake failure light to come on, but brakes were okay. Error codes non-specific so recommend getting software update at dealer. Get update, get ABS electrical software updated
Feb '11: Turn car on one day and it stalls while still in park. Error-message in box says, “anti-skid service required.” Problem does not disappear with subsequent restarts. Have car towed to Volvo dealer. Problem is diagnosed to be with BCM. BCM is replaced for $1800.
May '11: Car has been driving perfectly (no stalls, no error codes, no lights or alarms, etc). Today, put car in reverse and it stalls - again get “anti-skid service required message” and stalling. Car will turn on (engine turns over), but it immediately stalls.
Car just towed to dealer. Did I get a faulty BCM or are they missing something? I live in the deep south so Volvo mechanics/dealers are hard to come by (compared to when I had this car with me up North)
Already out a lot of $$, want to proceed down the right path …
