Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 vhd volvo (last 8 vin # 5n376685) I swapped the original engine (d13) for a isx cummins (esn79208535) I am trying to get the vecu to communicate with engine ecm as I have no throttle, however, when I go through the vecu to look @ the values of tps, everything is working through vecu just hoping for direction, I do not want to cut into the harness!

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

It is a manual 8ll, around 250,000

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 Volvo?

Vhd

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

Yes, about every measure, 1-800 cummins, as well as, every volvo dealer/service department in three nations

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Volvo says they never offered the cummins in the vhd, with that said, many one off custom pieces were made to fit this engine in this chassis.

Hi, Sorry for the long delay. I got called out on the road and I was trying to see if I could find any successful results of this being done. So far empty. There is a problem with software compatibility right off the bat since Volvo never made a program to work with Cummins this generation. Anytime you have a chassis controller in the mix you need to make sure there is compatible software available to work with your replacement engine. If not you can run into major incompatibility problems. Have you had any gains on this since your post?

Daniel All Has Been Figured Out, This Is Not The Answer I Was Looking For With This Delay, However, It Was As Simple As Swapping The VECU. Daniel, "We The People" Expect NASA Results From Just Answer. I Want My 24 Dollars Back.

Customer service handles all that as I havent gotten paid a dime of it...They hold your deposit. Professionals are not employees of the site and would only get a percentage of a question deposit on positive feedback or accepted answers. So their day jobs and repair businesses are unfortunately their priority in most cases where the pay is guaranteed and possibly closer to the old saying "Equal pay for equal work" and if this were the case professionals might reconsider their day jobs/businesses to answer questions on here . Glad you got it figured out.
