when buying a used ETM what will work without a reprogram?

Post by gentlejax »

long story short I am short on funds to buy a $600 etm and was looking at some yellow tag etm's online. I see that these interchange for many different cars. I also have read they may need to be programmed.

what will install on a 99 s 70 t5 and not need to be programmed? must they be exact year and model?


I also see there is a cheaper rebuild part on ebay that charges $350 anyone try them?

my etm light comes on but I cant really tell any difference in the way it drives. I have a scanner that I am able to clear the light with but it comes back. sometimes sooner than later.

I am just trying to find an alternative other than blowing it up or running it into a river or parking it on some railroad tracks

I can read your ETM firmware and put it to the donor ETM.
Dice is needed for this process.
Dice clone will do only if it detected in Windows as DiCE-xxxxxx (usually as DiCE-206751)
If you have questions about Volvo firmware ask me. I may know an answer :)

What does that mean exactly and how would that work?

I found a few etm's that would do with low mileage

Car itself runs great. It may actually have had etm's replaced before me but that was nearly 80k miles ago

Supposed that you have DiCE.
I will give you my program that shares DiCE via internet.
You install new ETM but connect to the socket an old one.
Connecting DiCE to the car.
Plug to laptop. (Off course it should have internet connection)
Initiate connection to my server.
I will read firmware.
You connect new ETM to the socket.
I will save it's firmware too.
After that I will upload software from your old ETM.
You can check how car is working.
I can check using VIDA if there is any error codes stored and clear them.
So everything is doable.

If you decide that new ETM does not help I will restore it's firmware and you can return it back.

Just ensure that you have fully charged good battery before starting.

If the used one is from your same year it should be plug and play, no re programming required

If you're refering to Module Master, they do a good job on rebuilding the ETM

Same year is plug and play, what about turbo or non turbo or does it matter ?

does it have to be a s70 or can it be a different model like a v70?

there are bunches on ebay. I am getting tired of the etm coming on and I am worried its going to totally go out. need to figure this out pretty soon.

I dont have lots of money to spend on it thanks to my divorce

Stick with same engine type as a rule and you increase your chances of a match. ie.
B5244S from P80 body (typically 2000 only V70/S70),
B5244S from P2 body (typically 2001-2002 S60/V70),
B5254T from P80 body (typically 1999 V70/S70),
B5234T from P80 body (typically 1999-2000 S70/V70 T5 and R),
B5244T from P2 body (typically 2001 TURBO XC 70 and V70/S60 2.4T),
B5234T from P2 body (typically 2001 TURBO V70/S60 T5),
B6294S from P2 body (S80 1999-2001),
P6284T S80 T6 (1999-2001) from P2 body.

Easier when you look at it like this.

Sometimes program numbers are shared between engine types but only from preceding years and NEVER turbo with non turbo.

Sorry to hear that. Did you replace it with another Swede?

I love volvo but just can't afford it anymore.

I mean the s70 was great and all but come on ... Electronic throttle bs that will fail guaranteed, PVC system that requires intake removal, dash squeaks that require removing the entire dash ..

I loved it and hated it at times. It's a shame cause the cars are well built just not in some areas
