Re: 98v70XC Service Light Reset Tool Emulation?
I have sadly come that conclusion. Volvo engineering took this function
into the "cannon to kill a fly" zone. Apparently got lots of gaff about it,
as the 99 and up cars have a simple dashboard control sequence procedure to
reset. At least it doesnt stay on all the time - goes out after 10 minutes
I'm sure I can get it reset for NC at where the car was purchased (Eurocars
Plus of Groton CT), which is by the way just around the corner from FCP
Groton. I had no idea that FCP Groton was doing so well as an Internet auto
parts supplier. They still look like the same local foreign car parts store
I've been doing business with for 30 years now, since my 1972 Capri V6!
