Question about 2002 Volvo S80
SOURCE: Bouncing Volvo S80 2002
Get your full weight on the left rear corner and give the car several bounces up and down to get some momentum going. Stop bouncing and watch the car. It should return and only bounce one half time more. Also worth looking at shock for signs of oil leaking. I suspect the rattling may be coming from a broken anti roll bar link. Once again a good look under the car is required.

Press and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the key one position and pause for one second. Then turn the key once more until all the dash lights come on. Hold the button until the SRS light (picture of a guy with a air bag in front of him) goes out. As soon as it goes out release the odometer button quickly. It should be about fourteen seconds. Then turn the key off and start the car.
I can't remember if it's the 2001 or 2002 that is changed. One is like this, but the other is the triangle will flash of the "service due" light will come on. If you've tried the others I hope this will fix it.

Some swear this works, others say it doesn't.
If it doesn't, the only other solution appears to be having the dealer reset the code. From what I read, it happens all the time if you do work and don't disconnect the negative on the battery. Try this...
Turn ignition position 1
Press and hold the odometer reset button
Turn ignition to position 2 (continue to hold odometer reset button)
After the Service Light flashes, release the reset button.
Tip: Do not wait for the light to stop flashing. Release the reset button within 5 seconds from the beginning of flashing. this should reset the service light. you must be in t1 for the reset to work it will not reset in t2 mode.

Weell it sounds like you have the days old problem Pepole dont know how to look after there cars.
The muck you still have in the engine isent doing it any good and so you have to get rid of it all, as its in the engine block and is got to go ,,so drain a little of water out and put in 1/2 a cup of washing up liquid in the radiator and start the engine and let it get hot and take the reves up to 1000 rpm now and then to keep the water going around the system, after about 1/4 hr turn off,,stand for 10 minutes ,,and then remove the cap slowly and then take off the Bottom hose and let all water out also take off Top hose at the engine end and put the house water hose in the top and turn it on till all water comes out clean. Then put hose up into the bottom hose and do the same again ,and the same in top again.Now with a clean engine you can do the same to the new Radiator and wash out all gunk .then check the thermostat and make sure its 100% (any doubt through it out) and take note how it comes out so you can fit a new one the same way,
Now refit both hoses and fill with coolant or antifreeze and TURN on the heater to hot before starting as you also have to get out the air from heater when it was drained and you will trap the air which might cause you code problems..
But now try service light reset
1,,Turn Ignition to Number 1position.
2,,Press and hold "day counter"reset button and turn
ignition to II(second) position,hold down for about 12 seconds.
3,,Afterservice light flashes,release button,there should be 2 beeps confirming reset was successful.
Let me know how you get on .. Ron
