Is it your SERVICE light or CHECK ENGINE LIGHT?If it is the check engine light it means there is a missfire in one of the cylinders.

The light may need to be reset.The service light is a reminder light for the oil change services.A special tool is needed to reset the light.

If you are an IPD subscriber (parts whse) a number of the models/years can be reset without tools. (www.ipdusa.com)

1993-1995 can be reset without tools.
1996 - 1998 require a reset tool. IPD may sell this - not sure.
1999 - 2000 can be reset via following a few steps (no tools)

Instructions for 1999-2000:
1. turn the ignition switch to position 1 (off)
2. Only the SRS indicator light is illuminated on the dash panel.
3. This is a two handed process: while pressing the trip mileage reset button,
turn ignition swith to position 2 (II). The service light will begin to flash in
15 - 30 seconds. as soon as it flahes release the reset button.
4. Turn ignition switch off. The service lamp should now be reset.

If doesn't work (which I found works everytime) go through all steps again. Swede in Colorado

works like a charm... does this work on all volvos? S40s or S60s? I did it in a V70 2000, but I have a 2001 S40 T4 at home with the service light on... I'll try anyway
