How to reset that annoying S80 TIME FOR REGULAR SERVICE MESSAGE without having to go to a dealer.
When your Volvo hits a preset number of miles or a calculated threshold of duty cycles (starts) and other variables, the message “TIME FOR REGULAR SERVICE” appears in your dash message center. Here’s how to turn that off.
Most modern Volvo service reset reminder procedure looks the same. After changing oil, filters and inspecting safety systems in your Volvo , you can easily reset service reminder indicator or message with a simple button combination.

Well,i’m glad it worked on your car but no such luck on my s80-2003.
Tried more than 5-6 times and nothing,it keeps throwing me back to the message.Maybe there’s something wrong,after the beep , 045 is showing ,than I switched to position 2 and same…. regular Volvo service required.Frustrating,after all a trip to dealer might be needed.
Thanks for the advice thou. 😉

A “Beep” is heard as soon as I turned the key to position II and once I released the reset button, 045 shown on the display and the “time for regular volvo service” return as soon as I started the engine… any idea? Guess I need to go back to the dealer? Any help is appreciated. >_<

OK I have read all the posts relating to this problem of trying to reset the Volvo service notice and then getting an 045 code and the service message remains but no one has solved it yet. I to am getting this same message. I have just completed a full Volvo service and want to reset the service message. I have done everything that has been suggested on these forums but with no luck Surely by now someone on this site must have come up with an answer that works. I was contemplating buying an ODB2 reader. Does anyone know if this would assist or do I have to take the car to a Volvo main dealer to sort this out. I am running an 03 V70 T5.
