hey eddie,
the car stop suddently while driving, I checked the sparks from the coils, starting fluid, gas pump, fuses everything looks good but the car wont start
I proceed to a computer diagnose the only code was circuit board A
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

So you do have spark when cranking correct? does it sound normal when cranking? like the engine has compression? what is the mileage roughly? thank you.

60k miles, to tell you the truth it sounded like a timming issue at first but after I opened the cover gasket up they were no issues with the timing
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

OK, should be fine at 60K on the timing belt. What happened when you sprayed starting fluid in it? did it act like it wanted to run at all then?

Code U0073
Control module communication bus off
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

here is what I am seeing with that particular code, there are two terminals under the ECM and TCM, that are called the "twisted pair" or CAN communication wires. These wires over time corrode at the bottom of these modules and you have to take new pins and solder them on the wires and install them back into the ECM and TCM connectors. That is one possible scenario.

Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

Unless it is a module that has gone off line and has just quit communicating shutting down the network. Which a trained tech and a Volvo Vadis machine could diagnose fairly easily.

While starting the vehicle, the engine turns but it won't start and a display in the cluster stating that starting is in progress. But won't start
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
While using a more advanced computer one of the code that was stored in the computer was the Tcm CAN communication wire while running a test on the TCM.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I see the ecm inside the box next to the air filter but I can locate the Tcm or the So called CAN wire. Can you help me find out a location?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
To be more precise the computer diagnostic revealed " high speed CAN communication wire "
Volvo Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

I don't have a wiring diagram for this late of a model unfortunately, but I can say that the only place you are going to get the parts you need is Volvo to fix it. as these pins are very small, and there is a special tool to get the ECM and TCM out. I would suggest maybe towing it to a volvo dealer and seeing if they would cover this repair under warranty being it is fairly new, I have seen them cover repairs that were much further out of warranty than this one. But really it would likely only be 3 hours labor or so if my theory is correct and I believe it is. The pins that are needed are in the large ECM connector and TCM connector. and you have to pull both of those units out and solder in new pins and take the connector apart to do it. Does that sound like something you would do? because if you have never done it before, I would rule against it. You could damage the connector trying to get the modules out without the special tool to get them out.

Hi, different expert here. My name is***** you have spark and fuel and injector pulse and it won't fire I would run a compression test. It sounds like it jumped time and may have bent some valves.

Let me know what you have for compression on all cylinders.

It looks like it was the previous expert who sent the links. I think he may have been replying to the wrong question. Let me know what you find when you run the compression test.
