Customer Question

Hi, I have just bought a v70 2001 plate 3 weeks ago. It is in stunning condition with good service history. The engine management light came on a couple of weeks ago. I took it to Volvo, they did a diagnostic and told me that the neutral control box was sending a faulty signal to the transmission control module. They said that I need a new gearbox at £4000.
I have been in touch with another garage and they have assured me they can re-condition the gear and recon another valve body for £1600. It's my best option to try this financially.
Is it worth me having this done or am I wasting my time?

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I really would like an answer asap. I paid £13 for this service so I expect that. If I don't get an answer soon, then I will have to take this matter further. Nothing personal but I expect a service.

Expert:  Enes replied 4 years ago.

thank you for update it looks like you need software fixed and that can help your problem and don't need new gearbox it is possible you can need gearbox but those codes indicate and what you describe what you feel when you stop and wait and jerks that is software control for neutral control is bad and there is update at this point software problem go to Volvo dealer garage and tell them you like

tcm software re load do this first and than do
