Question Really need help ASAP!

Hello my name is Allen, I'm new to the forum and new to Volvo's.

I have been looking for info for days...

I have a 99' S80 T6 and it won't go over 20 mph, we put a scanner on it and it come back as the TPS, all I can find is the one from the dealership that is $700+ and then $160 for them to put it on.

So really my questions are...

Is the ETM and the TPS the same thing?

If not, by sending my ETM to will that fix my problem..

If it won't where is the cheapest place I can find one?

Thanks in advance Allen.

What is your code? Sometimes it could be your Mass Air Flow causing your symptom. The etm has been a high failure part and expensive. Xemodex seems to be the better soultion although still expensive.

Truthfully, One of my dads friends put the scanner on it so I dont know the code, But he looked it up and said it was the TPS...

What could the problem with the mass air flow be? May be a retarded question but could it throw the TPS code and make it not go over 20?

So are you saying if I send it to that company it will fix the problem with the tps for sure?

Thanks for the help man!

Your ETM is bad for certain

I believe the code is P0121 for your ETM and your car went into what is called limp mode because volvo doesn't want your ETM to completely fail with a wide open throttle can kill it's customers.
