Default Dash lights problem

I have a s80 T6 and i have numerous dash lights on which sometimes go out and sometime stay on.

The abs light, service light, stc light and engine management light.

The above lights sometimes go out but mostly stay on. Because of the way the lights are i am thinking towards the trip computer?

i used a computer reader and the engine management says accelerator power low?

where is the trip computer located on the s80?

any help with this would be helpful.

I followed the instructions for removing and repairing the ABS module and thought, that was easy apart from opening the module..lol.

The module didnt look to bad but the dirt around the conector to the module was..so abit of WD40 and re-inforce the solder points mentioned on another thread and i was done.

Anyway a big thank you to all the people on this fantastic forum for all the posts and information concerning the dreaded ABS faults.

All lights have now gone off and hopefully they will remain off.

Sorry I missed this post. Congrats on fixing it your self.
You might want to have all the codes cleared to start from scratch.
I know the lights are off but the codes are still there.

That light is an oil change reminder light.
There is many posts here on how to reset it.
