Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. First please confirm if this is the Leiburr crane of this model or an EC160B Volvo Excavator? On the excavator this fault points to a faulty VECU needing reprogramming or replacement or another common issues is corrosion at the connector on the back of the monitor panel. See if the machine will run in manual mode which bypasses the computer. If so you likely have a faulty VECU but be sure there is no wiring issues or corrosion in the harness that could have caused the failure or the problem could repeat with a new VECU. You can try reprogramming your existing one first. Let me know
