Hi, I have a volvo xc90 and have a DEM unit issue. My unit

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have a volvo xc90 and have a DEM unit issue. My unit is beyond repair(water damage) so I have sourced a replacement which has the same numbers on it, and only 2 months out on the date. I have just been to my volvo garage who have downloaded the computer software but can not sink it as they say the second hand DEM unit needs wiping first which volvo don't supply the software to do.. Is this correct???
