2000 V70 has a multitude of warning lights that come on once

Customer Question

2000 V70 has a multitude of warning lights that come on once the car has been on for a few minutes --- started with the brake warning and is now up to the engine light --- had my mechanic test this with is "gadget" but the code that came on was unknown to him. Yes it has just over 100000
JA: Have you checked the brake fluid? Does the light stay on steady or is it intermittent?
Customer: Starts intermittent then stays on --- lights did clear when we disconnected the battery overnight but then came on again Brake fluid? it has several light on not just the brake
JA: Are you fixing your V70 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I took it to my usual mechanic --- He said he had read something about an antennae at the ignition /key area
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I am looking for the cost on this website.....

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Can I get the codes which are stored?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Hmmmm will contact my service person.
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.


Once I know the codes I can help more. For now a brake light on could be low brake fluid or a parking brake applied, or either of those sensors reading wrong.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris

No help from my mechanic...he suggests I take it to the dealership....let's cancel
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 8 months ago.

I can help you avoid the dealer since your mechanic is not helping. I just need to know the codes.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
He can't remember to codes --- he did not charge me at the time as he was selling his business and has done so now...
so no codes available
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
We need to cancel this correspondence
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 8 months ago.

You have to do that from your end by contacting the website.
