I am getting a "Check Engine ECU Next Stop" have cleaned the battery connections, alternator connections, plug on speedometer on transmission, re-placed both fuses (and fuse holders) that power the ECU inside battery compartment. no success!

Can you read diagnostics through the instrument cluster? On some newer volvos you can navigate to the engine ECU diagnostics through the cluster by using the wiper control arm on the steering column. You can navigate to diagnostics and go to Engine ECU and read the code.

I have not been able to find the way to navigate to the diagnostics as you described in your answer, my truck is a 2005 vnl 630, in addition to what I already tried to fix this problem I cleaned the starter connections as someone had advised to ensure all ground connections to be clean and tight, still no success!

I believe the "check engine ECU" is telling you that there is a diagnostic code stored in the ECU. You need a scanner to read that code if you cannot access diagnostics through the instrument cluster.
