I don't know if there are any good tools you can get or not. I know that there are some manufacturers of tools like this for other makes, where you can run it on your laptop and reset codes etc. I'm not aware of one for Volvo though. Anyone?

The below should work (it does at least in the S60 and V70)<P>a) Turn key to position 1<BR>b) Press the reset button from daytrip counter and hold it pressed<BR>c) Turn key to position 2 (while keeping the button pressed)<P>d) As soon as the service light is starting to flash (I think it takes about 10 seconds for it to start to flash), lift your finger. Don't let it flash for more than five seconds otherwise it won't be reset.

Evolvo:<P>I can't figure out why people who don't know the answer to a question butt in and attempt to give an 'nothing' answer.<P>The other posts are correct... You press the trip odometer while going from pos I to pos II, and keep it depressed for several seconds.<P>

Hey bud, ease up. When I replied, there were no replies. I don't own an S80, but I do know there are diagnostic programs/tools you can get out there for other cars. My cousin has a VW GTI and he has something for his laptop that works like the dealer's tool that can be used to monitor the car, and reset codes etc. I've seen other shareware that allows limited monitoring from a Palm. I just don't know of one for Volvo (too bad). <P>I figured this board was for people to help others out. I didn't give any false information, I just gave the relative little I did know.<p>[This message has been edited by Evolvo (edited 10-17-2001).]

Thanks to everyone who replied.<BR>This topic can be closed now.<BR>pressing the odometer reset button, while keyswitch moved from I to II did the trick.

Easy Guys <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">. Glad to hear it worked. I assume that works on all modern cars. How far back does that go? For instance, is their a trick on the 850? The odo isn't electronic on that car, so I'm assuming it is a wholey different process if there is one.
