Hi

Can anyone tell me what an ETS warning light and the engine managment light may be referring to?


Thanks

Electronic throttle....something I think.

The bad news is, it's a common failing point on a lot of Volvos - it was on Watchdog anyway.

The very bad news is, I think it's pricey.

The good news is, I don't know what i'm on about so I could be talking rubbish.

The better news is, there are loads of people who know about this so no doubt they'll be along soon to help you more than I can.

Good luck anyway,

Adam

This is a very well known problem with the Italian-made (Marelli) electronic throttle system fitted to these Volvos. When the completely pack up the car won't go above about 25mph. Some people have had them replaced and the new one fails after a year or two!!
New ones are about £500 from the dealer and then they charge for fitting and coding the new one to your car. So probably £600-700 to fix. If you can get your old one rebuilt then you'll save on the coding charge. Try BBA-Reman or a local Volvo independent specialist.

i was a keen buyer of this car for myself till i saw watchdog and although i didnt like the sensationalism i didnt like also the fact that it was a recognised problem in the usa but was dismissed over here,so i went and bought a leather clad primera and glad i did............saved £2000 as well

Would this apply to a 1999 model as well?

Looked at that link and its for a Watchdog programme in Jan 2006. Problem was well known a few years ago though so they've been a bit slow. I think from 2003-04 or thereabouts Volvo changed to a Bosch unit??

2003 saw both Bosch and Marelli units used, so 2004 should be clear of Marelli (according to various owners on volvo-forums.com)

This forum is where I will start when the ETM fails on my 2002 S60. Please do read as it will give you very useful info of US and UK Volvo stance. I read of one UK owner who recently got his 99 V70 ETM replaced for free by Volvo UK.
