Volvo S70: I have a 2000 Volvo S70, non-turbo. Can you replace

This answer was rated:

I have a 2000 Volvo S70, non-turbo. Can you replace a faulty Engine Control Module with a used unit? Is there any programming that needs to be done that can only be done by Volvo dealer? My car quit running suddenly. Would crank, but then die. I took to my local mechanic and they think the ECM is bad because when they hook up their diagnostic machine, they can't communicate with it. They've done work for me for many years and have never had a diagnostic issue before. It looks like a new ECM from Volvo will run about $1300 - $1500. The car is only worth about $3500. I'd prefer not to put so much $$$ into it if a used unit could work. Plus, the closest Volvo dealer is over 70 miles away. Thanks!
