Get a ODB2 handhold. You can see the codes and reset the light as well.

Best Regards,

Tropicalcats, if you have a check engine light then chances are there is a problem that needs to be fixed. Resetting the light won't help much if the problem still exists...the light will come back on.

If you have a service reminder light on, that can be reset easily.

A handheld OBD II scanner will read the trouble codes from the computer and allow you to clear the codes.

Verify that the following recall was accomplished by a "reputable" dealer:

Build Years/Makes/Models:
2003 - 2004 VOLVO S60
2003 - 2004 VOLVO V70

Units affected:
38700

Recall Number:
07V226000

Summary:

ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR LOCATED ON THE LEFT END OF THE FUEL RAIL MAY, AT TIMES, TRANSMIT INCORRECT SIGNAL REGARDING THE FUEL PRESSURE TO THE ENGINE CONTROL MODULE. IF THE SIGNAL IS OUTSIDE OF THE PRE-PROGRAMMED ALLOWABLE LIMITS, A DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE MAY BE SET AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL COME ON. THE SOLDERED JOINTS ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD OF THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR MAY CRACK DUE TO TEMPERATURE CHANGES AND EXCESSIVE VIBRATIONS.

Consequence:

MISFIRE MAY OCCUR DURING DRIVING THAT, IN TURN, WILL REDUCE THE ENGINE TORQUE AND IN THE WORST CASE SCENARIO, THE ENGINE MAY STALL WITHOUT WARNING. IN CERTAIN TRAFFIC SITUATIONS THIS COULD CAUSE AN UNSAFE SITUATION AND POSSIBLY A CRASH.

Remedy:

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON JUNE 29, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLVO AT 1-800-458-1552.

Notes:

VOLVO RECALL NO.R181.CUSTOMERS MAY CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION?S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Here's a simple fix:

1. Go to Autozone.
2. tell them that your "check Engine" light is on, and ask them to pull the code(s) from you car, and reset the light.
3. Wait patiently as the Autozoner does this for free.
4. Write down the code(s)
5. Go home and Google the code(s),(should be a P0xxxx format)
6. Post back here whatever you found out.
7. Watch in horror as we try to help.

Hopefully it's as simple as an Evaporative Emissions code or something benign.
Are there any other issues that we should know about?
