I have read just about every thread on resetting the ECU. There is some discussion that fuses 6 & 23 have been changed on the 06. Can any of you shed some light on what fuses to pull on an 06??

Re: ECU Reset on an 06 (Stratton)

You can do a fuse pull. However if you want a full ECU reset, disconnect the battery (in the trunk) for 15 minutes. Then after you hook the battery back up the car will go thru a "learning stage" and will logg the type of driver you are. If you drive it like you stole it for 1-2 days the car will remember this, and thus a more aggresive throttle response. If you drive it like a little old lady, well you know the deal. Hope this help, Rick

Re: ECU Reset on an 06 (MASH)

Should I wait the 10mins as listed in the manual:<p><I>Replacing the battery<br>Version A <p>Switch off the ignition. <br>Wait at least 10 minutes after switching off the ignition before disconnecting the battery so that all information in the car's electrical system can be stored in the control modules. </I><p>Or should I just disconnect the battery right after turning off car? Thank you for your help!!<br>

Should also mention that if you were to pull the fuses on an '06, it would be #12 and #19

Updated info on MY 06 R's:<p>Yeah, looks like a new wiring scheme. Fuses #12 and #19 seem to be the 2006 assignments: <br><A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/owner...pg158<br>" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/owner...pg158<br></A><p>

Re: ECU Reset on an 06 (flybynight)

I think you cut and pasted the URL from the other thread, with the "..." <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Try: <A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/2006/2006_S60/06s60_11b.htm#pg158" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/2006/2006_S60/06s60_11b.htm#pg158</A><p>#12 and #19 (in the engine compartment fusebox) are the 06 assignments. Rumor has it that trying to start the car with these fuses out will shorten the time required to reset, if you're in a hurry.<p>Tom.

Re: ECU Reset on an 06 (LTA)

I have been told that the engine and the transmission have an "adaptation" process that they go thru. I know for the engine, if you drive it like an old lady after the reset the car is much more laggy.

I always thought the only adaptation to driving style was for the GT transmission and not for the engine's air/fuel map. I thought, as I said before, that the air/fuel map adapts only to octane and not to driving style. Maybe it's time to study the Motronic <br>ME7.1 document <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> or for a more fun approach I'll pull the fuses tonight and then run some quarter miles with my g-timer! Time for trip to my favourite 'private road'...<p>LTA<br>

Re: ECU Reset on an 06 (Mash)

Disconnected the battery this afternoon before I drive home non-old-ladyish <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Found out my car alarm makes another noise besides the horn honking! That was quite entertaining, though I think the horn honk is a better attention getter.<p>Anyone know how to sound the battery disconnect alarm, or whatever you call it, without having to disconnect the battery?<p>Thanks!
