Just bought the actron cp9125 from Sears for $60. Seems to work fine, reads the codes and clears them. Recommended. Unfortunately I don't think it will reset the service light.

Re: actron scanner, cheap and works (baldguy)

If I remember correctly the service light requires a special tool not just and OBDII reader. You can typically find them on Ebay for a few dollars.

Right...'96, '97 and '98 Volvo's (850/ 70 series) all require a special tool to reset the service light....a scan tool won't do it. Draper makes a reset tool that does work....I got mine from eBay about a year ago for about $70-75 including shipping. It looks identical to the one sold by IPD.
