Question about Volvo S40
When this light flashes and you have the correct key then a problem exist in the system, the only way to diagnose this is to use a special scanner to look at the systems inputs and outputs.

You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

Hi, that symbol is the MIL (engine check light) on the diesel cars. You probably have an intermittant fault, if you find someone with an EOBD code reader - which most garages have. They will be able to read the fault code which will have been stored relating to your fault.
Hope that helps Matt...
P.S If the fault relates to the EGR valve speak with your VW retailer as the car may need a (free I think) software update.
