Default 2005 Volvo S40 service message reset

Hello,

I recently service my S40 at the local mechanic (not Volvo as they are too far away) and they didn't reset the computer. Every time I start the car, a message comes on saying 'service needed.' Does anyone know how to reset this yourself to the next scheduled service?

i know on the previous model you turn the car off all the way push in the trip and hold it turn the key to the on position and when the serive light flashes you let go of the button. mabe it works for your generation as well.

I fused the following on my '06 s40:


This procedure was found in the V50 forum ...

1. Press and hold trip odometer reset button
2. Turn ignition key to run position KPII (not the start position)
3. Wait 30 seconds or until service light begins blinking
4. Release Trip Odometer button
5. Turn ignition to off position

Good luck!

PLease do a search. This has been covered multiple times.
