The connectors are to the inside of the vehicle and above the fuse box.
Pull the trim panel down.
The connectors are green and blue.
On mine I separated the green to green and replaced one with the proper match blue.
She be out, and yes, gb is correct it is triggered by a mileage timer.
Hope this helps

There is a small odometer behind the speedo that controls the light. After 60,000 miles it trips the switch, if you will. When I installed the '82 dash I was able to check it out.

Helps to keep the pinging to a minimum.

My opinion of the former owner has sunk to a new low. That light has been on solid for 67,000 miles, and they did nothing about it. Amazing.

When I got it, it still had the black tape residue, but the dealer had fixed the light.
If they DO re-occur.... then my light is ready to come on somewhere near 275,900 miles

There is a reset procedure for that Service light on the 850 Volvo, that can be performed without any special tools. It's involved but not impossible. I've got it in a reference manual somewhere, but the procedure may be the same as Mr. Barron's post. It's similar, at least (I recall reading the procedure and shaking my head).

I had a Volvo 850 turbo that had a service light that came on every 5,000 miles. Only way to turn it off is to get the dealer to do it, or buy a $300 ODBII scan tool . . .
