Photo request…if you are out and about can you take a picture of your Volvo at the Dudley Hippodrome, slated for demolition ?

It’s historical to my family.
Of course if I am passing I’ll stop off and take a photo :)

Fascinating about the ETM software - it’s still working great in my car almost a month and 1000 miles later.

So the ultimate question is: Is the new type volvobranded (no MM label) with hall efect sensor ETMs are plug and play across the board or not?
I don’t know the answer to this. I was of the impression I would need to install new software when I fitted my new ETM from Volvo. The dealer tried but failed, but the car works great anyway.

To update the thread:
  • I got a new ETM from Volvo - fitted it to the car and it worked without software ~£450 for the part.
  • I got a refund from ECU Testing for the still faulty ETM.
  • I got the exhange part cost back from Volvo after sending them the old ETM - £120.
Total cost £330. All labour done myself.

Car has a P1171 code that I thought might be being caused by the ETM but has since returned so onto that now. Going to smoke test the vac/EVAP system and replace the 02 sensors if no leaks.

Thanks for the follow up. Now for the important stuff - is your 1999 T5 in Nautic Blue?

It absolutely is! :D

Is that your favourite colour? I might have to make sure I get that picture in Dudley if it is!
