Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. Do you know what code is stored in the BCM now? it's probably the SAS sensor. Had more problems out of those than anything,

Not certain. Volvo originally diagnosed the BCM, so I sent it off to Xemodex for repair and reinstalled. What's the SAS sensor?
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Steering Angle Sensor. It's basically the air bag clockspring,

If you can stop at a local chain auto parts store, borrow their scanner, (they usually have one that will read ABS and SRS codes) and see whats stored, I believe that would be the best thing to do at this point.

Is that what you're suggesting is causing the ABS Brake failure messaging?
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I would not be surprised if that was it, but, I would like to know what codes were stored in the BCM first. I'm kind of flying blind without that information on this particular problem.

Ok, thanks
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Let me know the code that is stored and I can help you further but, if I had to take a stab at it, I would say SAS sensor, double check the wheel speed sensors and the toothed wheel on the CV axles on the front, I've seen them crack before.

Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Let me know if you get the codes read, or if you have any further questions. Thank you.
