Volvo 850 Maintenance Reminder Light Reset Procedures

DESCRIPTION

The Service Reminder Indicator (SRI) is triggered at the appropriate interval since last service. Depending on model, this is based on accumulated mileage, calendar time, or hours of engine operation.
Once triggered, the SRI comes on each time the engine is started. The light goes out after approximately two minutes except on
850 Base variant (without trip computer). After service is performed and the SRI counter reset, the SRI will not light again until shortly before next service is due.
