I had the same result the first time I tried to reset mine. I believe I wasn't fully switching all the way to position II. I finally got it to work though. Keep trying. Unfortunately it's a needlessly complicated process.

Too bad Volvo feels a need to be such [insert pejorative]s about things like this and make them ridiculously convoluted. Probably made it a big selling point the dealers. "The average customer will never be able to reset the maintenance reminder themselves. They will have to come to you for every oil change!"
