    Is there a way of resetting the engine warning light on a 1999 V70
    without connecting to a code reader as can be done with resetting the
    service light.
    If a code reader has to be used, and I have been trying to find one
    suitable, does anyone know of a basic one that works with this model
    or do I have to get one for European vehicles I only want it to read /
    erase the codes and reset the light.

    Thanks,

    Graza

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    It may depend on which engine you have. I used to have a 1999 Diesel V70,
    and none of the third-party code readers would work with it - only the
    dedicated tools used by Volvo dealers. When I had the same problem, I had to
    get a Volvo dealer to reset it.

    On the S60 you can reset the service interval indicator by doing this.


    Ensure all doors are closed.
    Turn ignition key to position I.
    Press and hold mlileage reset button [A].
    Immediately turn ignition key to position II.
    Keep reset button [A] depressed until trip meter is reset to 0.

    NOTE: If trip meter has already been reset:
    • Hold reset button [A] for 10-14 seconds until previous trip meter reading
    is shown.
    • Press and hold reset button [A] until trip meter is reset to 0.

    MY 2003 ^> : A yellow warning light will illuminate when it is time to
    release button [A].
    Release reset button [A] within 4 seconds. There will be an audible signal
    when reset complete.
    If reset button is not released within 4 seconds, the service interval
    indicator will not be reset.

    John.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    Er. . . the OP was asking how to reset the engine warning lamp (the one that
    indicates a problem with pollution control) *not* the 'service due' lamp.

    Either through the dealer or purchase an OBD code reader this will only
    read the engine codes nothing else as the manufactures have different
    pin configurations for each connector

    Either go to the dealer to have the check engine light repaired or go to
    auto zone & have them read & clear the codes

    Thanks Glenn, If it is any help the plug is a OBD2 using pins
    3,4,5,6,7,13.14,16. Looking for a simple reader using this protocol.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    How do you know? As far as I can see, the OP has only posted twice to this
    thread and on neither occasion did he say what engine his car has.
