Hi all,

Hoping someone can help....

We've recently had a service on our 2001 V70, oil, filters, plugs etc... and since then there's a message in the text bit of the dash saying "Engine System Service Required" and the cruise control has stopped working. There was also a "Service Required" light, but i got rid of that with the on/off press trip button thing.

There's no red or orange light on the dash and the message come's and goes... but the cruise control never works. (press the button but no CRUISE appears on the dash where it used to..

Now it get's weird....

I took it back to the garage (not a Volvo one) and they plugged in a computer and looked to find the error code .. but there isn't one they cleared the Error memory anyway and then tried car but Engine System Service Required .. Looked in memory, still no code..... they then looked in an other part of the car's memory (sorry for being vague!) and there was nothing there either.

Car off and back on ... no message ... car off and back on .. message ... and the CControl never works.

Their answer now is that there's nothing in the service that could have caused the problem and the say i need to take it to a Volve Garage - spending more money!!

Must add again, cos all the advice seems to centre around this ... there's no "Engine service" light on the dash. just the message....

Thanks for reading ... will be interested to see what the experts here make of it!!!

Hello, James
I think you need to go to official dealer Volvo, however if you don't want to spend your money you can to try disconnect a battery for 10-15 minutes and then to connect again. After it either the "Service Required" light will switched off (but it may be switched on after some time if your car really has any problems) or the garage computer will able to read diagnostic code. Good luck!

generic code readers are not picking up volvo proprietary codes.

You need the dealer for the correct diagnosis with their VIDA machine.
