Reset Volvo S60 Time for Regular Service message

service message

Looking to reset your Volvo’s service message?

The timing is the answer. I was trying the other methods but doing it too slowly, check this out…
Most modern Volvo reset service message procedures looks the same. After changing oil, filters and inspecting safety systems in your Volvo, you can easily reset service message or indicator with a simple button combination.

Volvo reset service message indicator procedure

  1. Put key into ignition. In some models it’s recommended to turn in to I position. Short press if you have START/STOP button.
  2. Press and hold trip reset or T1/T2 button on the instrument cluster. If you have digital instrument cluster, press and hold OK button on the left stalk.
  3. Turn key into II position while still holding the trip reset button. Press if you have START/STOPbutton.
  4. Wait until yellow indicator starts to blink. This takes about 10 seconds.
  5. While the yellow indicator is blinking, release the button.
  6. Turn the key to 0 position.

Service reminder is now reset. You can now turn on the ignition to confirm that the service message or service indicator is not showing anymore.

    I tried holding down the reset button before turning the ignition and then let go after the car turned over. This did not reset the maintenance warning light. Is the procedure different for the 2007 Volvo S60 2.5L? Just wondering.
