The text message is displayed for 120 s each time the ignition is switched on.<br>Proceed as follows to reset the service reminder indicator (SRI):<br>-Ignition position I<br>-Press and hold in the reset button for the trip odometer<br>-Ignition position II.<br>Note! Turn the key to position II within 2 seconds.<br>-Hold the reset button for the trip meter pressed in until the original value has been reset.<br>Note! For all vehicles from the 2003 model year a general yellow lamp will light when the reset button must be released.<br>-Release the reset button for the trip odometer within 4 seconds. The instrument gives an audible signal when resetting has succeeded<br>-If the trip meter is already reset the reset button should be held in for a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of 14 seconds.<br>Note! If the reset button for the trip odometer is not released within 4 seconds, the service reminder indicator (SRI) is not reset.<br>

My usual answer is to SERVICE THE WAGON/CAR!

True...I agree with JRL 100%, but if you're like me and do your own oil changes, you want to be able to turn the reminder off. The above works with our '04 wagon.

Guys<p>Many thanks for this little gem.<p>I have a July 2003 (2004 MY - Round Volvo logo on steering wheel) V70 D5, which has just gone out of warranty. <p>I can now do my own servicing, and with Volvo UK dealers charging £85/hour labour, I can afford to change the oil/filter every 6,000 miles and still be in profit.<p>I've been restoring classics for 30 years - I've spoken to several of the snot-nosed kids who actually do the work in dealer service bays, and I wouldn't trust them to brush up, let alone service my baby.<p>Without Vadis and a laptop, they wouldn't have a clue. <p><br>Use genuine filters and a quality synthetic oil - your baby will reward you with long life and good economy.<p>
