I've owned my 240 DL for a few years and during that entire time the cruise control ECU has never worked. I'd done some casual searches online and called a number of boneyards around the Inland NW, but found nothing. Yesterday I got determined in my search and found one via car-part.com. I almost bid on one on ebay, but opted out when the price hit $100. I was able to get mine for $45, and the boneyard in UTAH is shipping it for free. Sweet. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><BR><P>

Wow! I have not actively been looking for one for mine, but I am coming to realize that I may need one for my car if I am to do any truly long haul driving. I have a 92 with a 5spd, and other than leather (GL) that's realy the only thing it does not have. Can you give me the web address if they have one? It's possibly a remote chance that there would be another but you never know and it pays to have your eyes open in all the right places.<P> BTW, you're from Spokane. My folks are from there. We drive out every other year from Virginia. I love it there! Dry, cool and the cars last just about forever.

Kowalski-<BR>The web site is <A HREF="http://www.car-parts.com." TARGET=_blank>www.car-parts.com.</A> You can do some very detailed searches. The site basically links you to a number of boneyards' databases across the U.S. It brings up the matches in a nice table format showing the price (if listed). Good Luck. I searched just in the Pac NW and got 5 hits with prices ranging from $45-$100.<P>Yeah, Spokane's great. Dry, 4 seasons, plenty of snow in Winter, great lakes in the Summer, but the roads here are brutal. Major ruts in the interstate and potholes galore. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>Later!<P>

Thanks, Hopefully I'll be able to find something. Although, I'm really in no hurry. I have a plethora of parts to install on my car like keyless entry, a tach, voltmeter, small clock, stiffer springs, some bushings, and an air horn. I have all this stuff just sitting around waiting for me to get the time at a shop or space in the back yard.<BR> It's all about lovin' on the Volvo. Treat her right and she'll never leave you stranded.<P> Yeah, I did notice the roads are terrible there. To get some good driving in, you almost have to drive to Oregon. But the family has a cabin at Newman Lake and the mountain roads there are a real kick. Still, not too smooth.
