      Etm question

      Tomorrow Iím leaving on a 1000mi road trip from Spokane, WA to Whistler, BC and back with my 2001 V70 T5M, itís at 120k and has the original etm. The etm has shown no signs of failing but I was wondering if it does start to go bad on the trip would the car go into limp mode? I all the the driving will be highway and faster. Just wondering if this is something I should be worried about.

      Downshift and push the throttle out of the faulty position if you have an issue

      My 2001 always ran good but one morning it gave me a message saying somethings wrong. No check engine light, but a message. The first message cleared after a restart, but after the second message I went with the Xemodex ETM. My white label ETM went to 138,000 miles and now I have 40,000 miles on the Xemodex unit.
      I think I was lucky that mine didn't run bad after the first message. Good luck!

      When my ETM was on its way out in the C70 it never went into limp mode. What would happen to me is when I went to change gears (manual) the engine would continue to rev till I pushed the clutch in. My foot would be off the gas but the ETM would not respond and drop revs until the clutch was pressed.

      Etm question

      I bought a Volvo refurbished etm from Scottish a few months back but I havenít had the time to throw it in yet.

      Thanks for the responses, should be a fun trip and hopefully it goes smoothly! It sounds like the car wonít every go into limp mode from it so I should be fine.
