Answer Ijust tried this with my 2004 C70 and it worked.

To reset your service light here are the steps.

1. Get in your car and shut the door.
2. Put your key in the ignition
3. Turn your ignition key to position 1
4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button.
5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car.

This should reset your service light and a service light on your Volvo C/S/V70 cars from 1999 onwards.

How do you reset the computer. The car has been idle for 8 weeks

Usually unplugging the negative terminal from the battery will do that. If you are lookind at erasing past fault codes in the ECM, some models allow you to do this with a sequence of operations using the instrument cluster and others can only do this with a Fault Code Reader. If you don't one, they are inexpensive and will pay for themselves in just one use as compared to visiting a shop.

Dome lights stay on all the time

Hey Rich how's it going ? What make , model an year vehicle do you have ? On vehicles after 1996 light functions are control by a control module , Body control module for GM vehicles , GEM - generic electronic module an smart junction box for Ford vehicles an Chryslers have central timer modules or upfront modules or now they have totally intergraded power module . These modules receive an input from a door switch or the switch on the dash ! anything is possible with these systems ! Do you have a symbol of a car on the dash showing a door open when it's not ? A door ajar message ? I have my Ford service info open on my lap top , was check out a problem on ford explorer , have a description on GEM .
Detecting Faults in the GEM Output Circuits
Battery shorts can only be detected when the device being controlled is actuated (e.g., relays, lamps or solenoids). All faults are monitored continuously during the vehicle operation. Reporting Trouble Codes
Faults are displayed after the continuous DTCs and the On-Demand DTCs are retrieved. Continuous DTCs should be retrieved from the GEM before an On-Demand Self Test is run. These DTCs are then compared against the diagnostic trouble codes retrieved after running an On-Demand Self Test. .
An a code reader for check engine lights won't work for these systems !

How to reset the service engine light

1. Go to any garage and ask the mechanic to reset the light. He may or may not do it for you.

2. Go to any auto parts shop and buy a code reader. Be sure the code reader will reset the code also.

3. Look in your owner's manual. It may have instructions on resetting the code at home. It may be as simple as disconnecting the negative battery cable for 30 seconds.

Vw Jetta engine light

false When the engine light came on it is telling you that there is a serious problem occurring in the engine management system or CPU. The correct procedure is to run the fault codes to find out the faulty sensor/servo. Check coolant level at the radiator cap. Fix any faults and then have a code reader used to reset the engine light

Wat does the malfunction light mean is it sereous

There are currently over 600 possible "generic" OBD Diagostic Test Codes (DTCs - also known as "fault codes") and several hundred "manufacturer-specific" DTCs that are possible causes of the malfunction indicator light to come on.
Some of the possible causes are not very serious. Others can cause severe damage to your car if you continue to operate it without correcting the cause of the DTC.

In short, you must scan your onboard computer network to retrieve the DTCs that have caused the light to come on. Until this is done and you have the DYC numbers available, NOBODY can tell you if this particular problem is serious or not.

My 2007 Dodge Caliber has lost power and will not accelerate. beyond 5-10 miles per hr. or past 2000 rpms on tach. The shock thunderbolt lightson dash.- electrronic throttle control system problem. how do...

When some error codes are displayed the computer puts the car into limp mode - this restricts the speed of the car so you can get home or to a repair shop - you should not drive it now until the problem is solved to avoid any further damage.
You may just have a faulty camshaft position sensor on one bank or maybe the timing belt may have jumped a cog and require replacement.
Code readers are very reliable - the code readers only displays the fault information that is sent from the computer - this tells the mechanic the exact fault or gives them a good starting point to diagnose the problem.
Sometimes resetting the fault codes in the computer with the code reader will fix the problem (it may have just been an incorrect fault indication) - if not - it will default again which confirms the fault and you will need to fix the problem.

Wrench light on 05 mustang

Their is a fault with the electronics on one of the vehicles electrical circuits, or one of the sensors is activated and reading a mechanical fault. This will bring up the malfunction indicator light, you will need to see a dealer with an electronics reader to find out what this fault code is meaning. Some dealers will read it for free, and then charge for the repair from that point. If it was a false code they will also reset it for free, althogh i have heard some dealers can charge up to $100. OR you can even hire a fault code reader from an automotive parts store and read it yourself. If it is an orange light, just get it to a dealer when you are able to. If it is a red light, avoid driving it and get to a dealer ASAP. this will prevent any further possible electrical damage and any other mechanical damage from what ever the fault maybe. Also, their is a safety issue if the fault is relating to a safety feature of the car. It is hard to pin point an exact fault and exact cost. Cost will vary with the type of fault. Once repaired, the dealer will be able to reset the light for you. Goodluck

"Time for service" light comes on after the car

Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.

Check engine light stays on

Diagnosis must begin by scanning the Engine Control Module (ECM) for fault codes. Then follow the diagnostic routine for the code to find the cause of the problem.
