    Default "time for regular maintenance" light reset

    HI,
    I'm in need of some help. I'm sure this has been addressed here, but I can't seem to find success with the search function, or Google for that matter...

    The car is a '07 XC70, and I've gone over to Amsoil. Need to reset the idiot light. Any help appreciated...

    This may work on an 07, can't hurt to try it

    1. Hold down the odometer button
    2. Turn the ignition so all the lights come on
    3. Keep holding the odometer down for 30 secs or until the service light starts flashing
    4. Release the odometer button while service light flashing
    5. Turn off and on again to check

    Default Reset sequence for 2008 XC70

    Does anyone know the sequence for the 2008 with the push-button ignition?

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Smile Got It!

    I pieced this together from an S80 Forum on another site.

    1. Make sure to start with the T1 millage showing on the trip meter. (Not T2)
    2. Press the ignition button once with your foot off the brake. The car will not start.
    3. Press and hold the trip reset button.
    4. While holding it press and hold briefly the ignition button again so that the run position is selected, again with your foot off the brake.
    5. Release ignition button, while continuing to hold the trip reset
    6. When the "i" begins to flash, release the trip reset.
    7. Done

    The service light reset on the newer generation system are required to be resetted by VIDA. the old resetting does not work, I have tried it on the new S80,V70, and XC70.

    Default exactly how to shut off time for regular service light in both old and new xc models

    for the 2001 - 2007 volvo models to shut the service light
    1. turn key to position I
    2. press odometer button and while doing so turn the key to position II
    3. hold odometer button until hazard triangle in center of dash flashes when this occurs release the button.
    4. go ahead and start the car and the light should be off.

    for the new 2008 volvo xc70 with the push button start [just turned my light off tonight after hitting 14,000 miles]

    1. start the car. the time for regular maintenance light will appear.
    2. press the button to shut the car off, the time for regular maintenance light should still be on the screen.
    3. breifly press the start/stop button, the dashboard will become brighter and the service light will still be on. [you are now in position I]
    4. press the odometer button first then quickly press and hold the start stop button until all the idiot lights appear, when this occurs you can release the start stop button.
    5. while still holding the odometer button wait until the orange Information icon flashes, when this occurs release the odometer button and you will here an audible signal that the reset has occured.

    on both vehicles your radio station presets will be lost after this reset so if you have any stations you like write them down before hand.

    I just did this method on my 2009 XC70 T6. Only difference is that I had to keep pressing the ignition button for 5-6 seconds while holding the trip reset in order to get the "i" to flash. Works well and did not reset radio station or other settings. Thanks to all for the great info on this forum.

    For those with PCC, you may have to put the key in the slot for it to work.

    Default Worked for me.

    Worked like a charm on my 2006 XC90 T5. Thank you. Did not lose my radio station presets.
