Default cheap ETM replacement

hi guys

As some of u will know i have been on a mission to find a cheaper way of changing the ETM to the latter (yeloow sticker) item without having to pay 200+ for this well known fault.

Well today was the big day, i found a replacement ETM (yellow sticker) fitted it, job done in about an hour, then the moment of truth will this work or not?
Turned engine over cough, splutter, then to my relief it settled down took for a test drive all problems gone.

The only thing i will say is i used one off the same model as i have altho it was a 98 "S" reg as apposed to a 99 "T" reg, and also it was an auto mine is a manual. Once all finished i took the car for an extended test drive (200 miles approx) and it runs perfect now.

To sum up if you are thinking of doing the same make sure the replacement ETM comes off the same ENGINE model as yours, as far as i can tell you wont go far wrong.

Just one last thing the replacement only cost me 50, if anyone needs one mail me as i can get hold of a few more at this price, obviously postage is extra, im not looking to make any money out of this just cover the costs of the ETM and postage

any further questions either post here or mail me

cheers

simon

Default Another ETM replacement.

Hi
Are there any more replacement ETMs out there?
My one has just cost me 45 to find out it needs replacement at 361 from dealer. This 1 year after the updated software cost me 90ish.
I've seen some of the videos on how to do it so I'm not overwhelmed.
I have a 1999 V70 2.5 XLT 20V.

Many thanks

John

Hi Mr Deathrider
are you still able to get these yellow label ETMs have 2002 C70 T5 which has the morreli ETM fitted. I have had the classic ETM probs for a month now. Volvo want a 120 pound just to tell me what I already know. was going to get a clean/reprogramme which volvo now say has to be paid for so may be cheaper to replace. any help would be greatly appreciated .

Cheers

Has any one used ECU testing in Eastwood ? My ETM was cleaned at about 80K but with 140K on the clock now tickover is getting increasingly erratic. 2.4T s60 petrol, or any swap over parts available?

an erratic idle is most likely just a lot of carbon blocking the throttle flap , if there are no fault codes thats what it will be .. ( unless something un related like air leak etc )
