Question about 1999 Volvo V70
Volvo V70 2.5 Classic, 55000 miles on the clock, and had its 90000 miles service done. For some reason both the service light and the engine light are now on. The service light disappears after a short while, but the engine light doesn't. From what I can tell, all seems fine. No noises, leaks, loose exhausts, etc. I don't have one of these electrical gizmo's which tell me what code is, thus I have no idea. Please can someone advise me on what the common cause are? Or, how to reset the bugger. Regard, J
The service light has nothing to do with the engine light. It can't be trigged by the ECM.
The service light are only trigged by one of 3 counters (time since last service, engine hours or mileage).
The service light are easy to reset if you got a YM1999-2000 car.
1. Put the ignition on to pos.1 and press down the trip reset button on the instrument cluster and keep it depressed.
2. Put the ignition on to pos.2,
3. When the service light starts to flash then release the trip reset button. Now you have reset the service reminder lamp.
You need to read out the DTC's from ECM to be able to fix the check engine light.

That is the emission system malfunction warning light, if this came on right after the service there is a good chance they left something disconnected during the service. U can have the trouble code checked for free by Autozone or Kragen auto, but don't clear it until the shop that did the service looks at the code.
