The tip of the stalk has a button that doesn’t seem to do anything when the lights are on.
What is its function?

Resets the trip odometer.

Thanks.

Another Volvo oddity. Almost every button, lever or switch works differently than in all the other cars I ever drove.
Light sequence: different
Odometer reset: different
Front wipers sequence: different
Rear wipers button: different
Engine start button: different
Sunroof controls: different
HVAC: different. (I still cannot figure out all the variables between fan speed, temperature, rear HVAC, etc)
Auto mirror tilt control when in Reverse: different. You have to dig into at least 4 menus to disable it!...
Child lock for rear doors: different

I understand that one of the reasons of owning a Volvo is its uniqueness but in many cases I feel that it is too much of Form over Function and make things counter intuitive; especially to first time Volvo owners.

Reset all information in trip meter TM (i.e mileage, average consumption, average, speed and driving time) with a long press on the RESET button on the left-hand stalk switch.
A short press on the RESET button resets only the mileage.

Volvo is pretty consistent within itself though. My V90 is pretty much identical to my 2006 V70 from a controls perspective so once you go Volvo you never go back..
