I am fighting the same foe.
Several people expressed sympathy for VP. Sorry, I don’t. My bigger question is, Who pays the labor cost for the replacement MDI boxes.
At 2550 hrs+/- my port engine
MDI croaked. With mine, pressing the power button brought up the text on the lcd on tach. After the usual preheat interval...nothing on lcd. System totally dead. The Volvo
tech is half hour away and spent time Troubleshooting eventually by switching the stbd MDI. Yup, MDI is dead. Nope not covered by recall
. The MDI stores engine
time, so he switched it back.
He installed new MDI PN 23231607...lasted well under 2 hours.
Call dealership and describe the new old problem.
Will send tech out to re-troubleshoot. Is this repair, new MDI covered by warranty? I went through a Certified Volvo service
center so I believe that the part is but how about labor? Well...back step, back step.
I can simply buy a new 23231607 and install myself but that voids Volvo part warranty. I don’t blame the dealer for covering cost but I don’t want to pay for it.
Is this the best option? Have them throw in a new MDI and choke down another $200?
Only on a boat
would this be tolerated.
