draper specialist tools sell a service light resetter which plugs into the computer connector sited under the coin holder in the centre console. It has a 16 pin connector and and resetting is done by the press of a switch ! try draper.com or eBay and look for the Volvo service tool. (it does other models too) retail price is 50 pounds sterling

Alternative - if you have a VDO instrument panel

My 850GLT has on board diagnostics, on LHS next to washer fluid filler, I was shown by the garage ........

Switch on ignition, insert fly lead into socket 7 of diagnostic module, then press the button firmly four times. When the LED stays on you are ready to program.

Enter code 1 5 1 by pressing once and releasing then wait for the LED to light, then press button 5 times and wait for the LED to light again. Press the button once.

Programming is done when the led flashes several times in succession, switch off ignition and remove lead from diag unit. Switch ignition back on and start engine. Light should be off. repeat if not successful.

If instrument panel is by Yazaki - reset is manual on the dash.

Please note that the Check Engine Light is not the same thing as the service light, and the above routine will not reset it.

You do battery reset, if that doesn't help then go to diagnostics and Engine ECU and check what code does it give.

There are a few different ways to reset the check engine light on this vehicle. You can either have a mechanic use a scan tool, remove the battery cables and touch them together, or fix the problem to get the light to go off.

The check engine light can be reset two ways. 1) If the problem resolves itself, the check engine light will reset itself after a certain amount of cold starts of the car on the on board computer system. 2) You need an OBD reader that has the reset check engine light capability.

It is important to make sure the check engine light is not on when having a car inspected. A person can reset the check engine light by clearing the codes that are causing the light to go on.
