Sorry if this has been posted before - I can't find reference to it.<p>I am performing the regular service of my car at my local mechanic - he is an excellent mechanic and very trustworthy. That said, on the one year anniversary of owning my car, the message "time for regular service" popped up on the display. I am guessing there is a calendar or something built into the car to remind you at each year (or 12,000 km). I can't seem to turn off the message. I click the read button and it goes away, however every time I start up the car the message will come back. Can I get rid of this on my own (or ask my mechanic) or do I need to visit Volvo?<p>Thanks

2 ways to do it:<p>1. Go to Volvo and ask them - it will cost ya <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>2. Do it yourself (your mechanic). All you have to do is to reset the ECU. Your mechanic will know how to do it.<p>Ps.<br>Sometimes its better to use Volvo dealers for yearly chceck, as they upgrade needed software and eliminate faults in the system. Your mechanic will not be able to do it, unless he has the codes form Volvo factory. This is why they charge so much. The only thing left is: pay and cry <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

This has been discussed before and I can confirm it works for the new S40:<p>1. Put the key in position I and begin holding the odo reset button.<br>2. Turn key to position II<br>3. When the "i" begins to flash release reset button<br>4. Turn key back. Done.<br>
