Time to eliminate the myth on the service light for ALL year 2000 and beyond Volvo cars. No special tool is ever required to turn off the service light as many dealerships would lead you to believe <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Considering we ARE a dealership, here is the trick:<P>1. Turn the key to the 1st position.<BR>2. Hold the trip button down.<BR>3. Then turn the key to the 3rd position.<BR>4. Light will begin to flash and about the 3rd time, release the trip button.<BR>5. Start the car to make sure the light is off.<P>I hope this helps you out. The light is simply a reminder that your year/ model car needs a service to be performed and nothing else. It NEVER has anything to do with the performance of the car. Have fun!<P>

This information is worth its price in gold. We should set aside a section of the board called "Post Hall of Fame" or faqs section for these types of posts. I have a voracious appetite for all things technical on the car too, so any posts that relate to part numbers, procedures, US vs ROW parts, and dealer service bulletins would be applicable.<P>

I haven't had the chance to try it yet on my car, since the light hasn't yet come on, but I heard from another tech that you do this:<P>key off<BR>hold trip reset button<BR>key on to position 2<BR>keep holding reset button for 10-12 seconds<BR>service light will flash<BR>release button<BR>done.<P>Any idea if that works too?<P>- Darell<P>

Darell,<P>Your technique could very much be another way as well. I can't be pro or con of that way because we have only used the technique I described. If anyone should use that technique, please let me know so that we may add that to our list <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>
