From member Kranz:

To reset the "time for regular service" message, the steps are:
- turn the ignition key to position I
- then press and hold the odometer reset button
- turn the key to position II
- hold the odometer reset button until the “I” message icon flashes
- quickly release the reset button and then turn the key to the off position

I just bought a 2008 V50 and this light came on shortly after getting the oil changed, causing a bit of panic. I looked it up here and this worked. Thanks so much!

When you do this... don't forget to close the door when you turn the key back on to test it!
