Make sure you check the taillights closely. There are two bulbs in there that sometimes are hard to see that there are indeed two thanks to there locations in the housing and the optics of the lens. Perhaps one of those is out.

Only way I know to clear codes and in turn lights is with a OBD2 scanner or VADIS/VIDA. No more DIY in that respect thanks to all the ECUs being used now. Sorry.

You have a tail light out (67 bulb), your position light warning will go away when it is replaced. If replacing one doesn't work, replace them all.

Another thing to check is your headlights. Volvos are weird about headlights. If they are differnet brands this will often cause a bulb failure light. For example, if you have 2 H7s in there, one Sylvania and one Wagner, this will often trip the failure warning. Make sure both bulbs are the same.

To reset the service light, turn the key to position 1 (where just the red airbag light comes on), push and hold the reset button on the instrument cluster, while holding the button down turn the key to the on position (when all the lights in the instrument cluster come on) and wait about 10 seconds. You will see either the service light or the yellow triangle light blink a couple of times. When it blinks, let up on the button and quickly push it again. This will reset the light.
