Are you having issues with your ETM (Electronic Throttle Module) and thinking about replacing it or refurbishing it with XeMODeX? Take a look at our ongoing list of XeMODeX users and their opinions on the XeMODeX replacement ETM.

XeMODex produces replacement electronic modules for a variety of manufacturers, including most European and American car makers.

Users have both bought a complete replacement from XeMODeX as well as having sent in their existing part for refurbishment. In either case, users report great results! Owners report an easy DIY installation, fast turnaround time (2-3 days from door-to-door for refurbished parts), and smooth idle afterwards:

Two day turnaround time!! Installed this evening (15 minutes). Idle is now smooth as silk. Was bouncing before. Drove around the neighborhood a little bit. Everything appears to be fine! Most excellent!!

And another quote on how easy the installation was:

Installed myself in about 1.5 hours. I did not have to remove the fan assembly. It wasn’t as hard to do as I expected. Could do in <1 hour now that I’ve done it once.

Engine fired right up – no ETS light! The test drive went without any difficulties.I highly recommend Xemodex’s superior product! I’ll be returning my second ETM soon for a modified unit.

Installed XEMODEX last week. 2001 S80 2.9 180000 miles. Dealer said it was in ETM limp mode. Wanted 7+ to replace. 499+shipping is a great deal. Plug in and drive, no dealer interface. Will update in a few months.

I bought my 2001 S60 about two years ago with just 62,000 miles on it and was ignorant of this issue. The engine just kept running rougher and rougher at low rpms and coming to a stop, and lurching into the lower gears. I found this web site, researched the issue, and had my local mechanic install a Xemodex unit this morning. The car runs so much more smoothly now; it’s incredible. Interestingly, he never took off the intake manifold, but just removed and reinstalled the unit from below by feel. Right now, I’m pretty happy, but I will update my feelings in a year or so.

NOT TO HAPPY .. THEY SAID FOR $249.00 THEY WOULD FIX MY VW ECU . THEY CALLED AND SAID UNIT NO GOOD. HAD USED ECU SHIPED, TO THEM TO TRANSFER DATA. THEY SHIPED BACK ECU, CHARGED CARD $295.00 PLUS SHIPPING . CALLED THEM BECAUSE THAT PRICE WAS FOR REPAIR OF UNIT. WAS TOLD TO BAD. HAD TECH INSTALL ECU INTO CAR. ECU NOT PROGRAMED WOULD NOT START? TOOK CAR TO DEALER FOR $40.00 THEY PROGRAMED ECU CAR RUNS FINE . DO NOT KNOW WHAT I PAYED ALL THAT MONEY FOR . THEY WILL NOT CALL BACK . WOULD NOT EVER USES THEM AGAIN. GO BBA REMAN.

Best darn company to deal with. The car runs fantastically. Do not forget to tell them the vin# so you can just replace the part and drive off. Stay away from the dealerships. You wont have to visit then anymore.
