You can buy a OBD2 compliant scanner online from a company called Innova. These scanners are capable of reading all car codes on every vehicle sold in the US after, I believe, 1998. The model is Equus 3030. It worked fine on my Volvo S80. I was able to read the problem codes and reset the check engine light.

Why is check engine light on in your Volvo?

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area. auto zone does not have the obd2 scanner to check this ar out 1997 850 Volvo

If you have a specific problem, you can search around for it. If you think it may be covered under a recall, check here ( related links ) and verify it with a Volvo dealer with the VIN.
