Have a code er13 on my 290 vovlo excavator

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Construction Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Sounds good

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have only checked all the fuses figured I'd get on the internet and look for simple stuff people have tried to take care of this code

It means no communication so either a loss of power/ground between modules, failed module, faulty datalink harness.
