Replacing ETM in 2001 V70 non-turbo

Postby zoonet » Wed May 19, 2010 7:25 pm

I have a 2001 non-turbo V70 that is showing all the signs of a failing ETM (fluctuating RPM's, surging etc). I spoke with the dealer and got the expected corporate speech, so I am looking to replace the unit with the Xemodex one. MY questions are these, how difficult is it to replace the unit (does anyone have pictures) and the dealer made a big deal about ensuring that the correct software is loaded.Does the Xemodex unit have the correct software? I have had the software upgraded when the problem first appeared.

Don't spend the money on the Xemodex. ... 12&t=29885

Read my post on volvoforums.

It needs to be cleaned very well and your battery needs to be replaced. Yes the battery is over $200 but you better pay now or pay later. There are many voltage sensitive electronics and sensors in this car that require a good battery.
