The regular service interval light on a Volvo S80 is designed to illuminate when the vehicle is due for scheduled maintenance. This light reminds the vehicle owner to schedule a service appointment, preventing mechanical damage due to extended service intervals. The vehicle's computer monitors a number of factors such as engine rpm, driver habits and average trip duration in order to determine when to illuminate the service interval light. This light can easily be reset without any special automotive tools.
