Remove battery cable for a minute, then put it back on. The light will go out.

If there is a fault in the system that hasn't been repaired properly, the light will eventually come back on. Fixing the problem is usually the best solution.

This works for me...
There is a small button in the instrument cluster that will reset the trip odometer. While holding down the button, turn the ignition key until the instrument lights come-on, but don't turn on the engine! Keep the button depressed - the engine management light should go off in about 5-10 seconds.

Check engine light is on but it needed an oil change and i got one but the light hasnt gone off, how do i reset it?

The check engine light does not refer to oil changes, this is for emmision and fuel management as well as a diagnostic tool for other engine components. The only wasy to clear this is to have the dealer clear them or repair what ever is causing the light. It will however clear it self after about 20 times of starting the car and the computer not seing any more bad scans from what ever caused the light to come on in the first place. You can have Auto Zone pull the codes from your car and tell you what caused the light to come on in the first place. To clear the aoil change light turn the key on and press the gas pedal 3 times all the way to the floor without the engine running.

I was told the air mass meter needed replacing as

the fault needs to be cleared and a short drive to adapt the throttle but if your engine management light was on i used to work for volvo as a technician(master) this is usually caused by the throttle which would honestly need to be done by someone at a dealer or with the equipment to download software to the throttle the throttle needs cleaned and there is a software update from volvo the crankcase vent willneed cleaned allthe way fron the vent box to the intake then you should have an engine flush and use syntheti oil this prevents the same issue with the throttle returning

You need the interface module and the OBD software to clear the trouble code; clearing the trouble code will then turn off the light. FYI - after clearing the trouble code, you have to drive about 40 -50 miles before the vehicle is ready for inspection test
