Default reset service engine light.

found these instructions:
1. Press and hold odometer reset button.2. Turn ignition switch to Run.3. After SRL flashes, release odometer reset button.4. Confirm by turning your Volvo off, then on again.

but cant get it to work for me. does anyone have any advice. perhaps more detail as to when to release the odometer?

As I said in the other discussion, that trick only works on SOME 1999 and 2000 S70s. Those of us with 1998 models or 1999s without the feature have to have the tool.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal?????? Make sure to disconnect your radio before that like the books always say. Damage to the microprocessor may occur (which has never happened to me all the times I have).

google search for "Volvo service light reset tool." They cost about $160. Really not worth messing with.
