    Been working on this truck and after diagnosing and some repairs in the control valve in the transmission I have found that the ECU p/n 11042046 is obsolete. I have contacted a few salvage yards, can anyone provide any other yards and/or alternatives?

    Have you asked your volvo parts supplier to check with Lipperts ? They gobble up all the OP and resell them back. That would be my first choice.

    Yes, they looked at Lipperts, so now I am looking everywhere I can think. I also worked at the dealer for 20 years.

    Put up a few pic. I may be able to repair it. Is it Dana/Spicer ZF or Funk?

    It is all Volvo, It is not a ZF made, I know the inputs and outputs of the ECU but do not know who actually makes it. The ECU is for the transmission only. If you think you can fix it, that would be great, I will get you any info you need that I can get my hands on, it is Volvo but smells like, looks like an Allison. I did not take pictures of it but can get them easy enough.

    Actually we thought we had it sorted but was then told it couldn't be repaired, If you could sent pictures of it to me if it is still available, that would be great. frank.haddad.60@gmail.com
