Your ABS control module is going bad. Eventually it will fail completely and you could also see a lost in your cruise-control and/or speedometer.
Go to ebay and search under v70 to find the abs repair guy (BBA re manufacturing) and opt to send yours in for repair ~$66 or get a replacement for ~$100. Otherwise expect to pay upwards of $500 - $700+ if you take to repair shop.
FYI: car is still drivable if you only remove the control module & not the pump. It's a easy DIY job and takes only ~1-2 hour to do. The ebay site shows you how to remove/install.
Hope this helps.

True, but this is a very common problem (replaced once on my R and twice on my GLT (also a '98). If you are seeing this problem but not getting CEL, go with this first. If there is a corresponding CEL: read code which could indicate a faulty/dirty ABS wheel sensor (a less common problem but possible).

Check the code first, then replace the module only if it is faulty.
#15 of 20 Rushing Air Noise from Brake Pedal

My 2001 V70 wagon has developed a rushing air noise where the brake pedal goes through the firewall. The air noise stops when you apply the brake but then comes right back. Otherwise, the brakes seem to work fine. The noise is just annoying.

Does the noise have a whinning sound to it? Sounds like what I had on my 2001 V70 wagon and it turned out to be a faulty break booster. That is an expensive fix (~$800-$1000) so you may want to get a professional opinion.

Ouch! Sound reasonable. I will take it in and see. Thanks
It started as a whining sound but progressed to a rushing sound.

01 v70 xc low brake pedal, new front discs,rotors, bled, still low but better, notice that front pass and rear drivers wheels can still be turned by hand when car is raised. brake fluid gets dirty after a few miles. also need to adjust pkg brk so any info on location and procedure.

Your post was a while back. I am curious what ever ended up happening? I am having a similar issue. First started as a high pitched squeal as if someone were letting air out of a balloon with the nozzle stretched tight. It has progressed to more like a rushing noise. Almost as if I have an extra air vent under my dash where the pedals are. There isn't actual air being blown there but it sure SOUNDS like there is! I am hoping to hear your results as I may have my car in the shop on 18th which is next week. If you can give me a pre-emptive heads up that would be GREAT!

Hi there my friend,
I saw your message concerning ABS warning light on in your Volvo.
I too have similar problem with my Volvo XC 70. The ABS lights are on and also at times together with the engine light.
Have mechanic checked and cleaned the ABS sensors still not fixed. Have also reset the computer - still not fixed.
I just wonder whether your ABS problem has been rectifed?
Can you please advise.
