Will this reset the SRS light on a 99+ 70 series? if so i would be very interested

No, it only works through '98 models.

Thanks for your suggestion. I just added that as an edit to the first post. I'll keep it up to date.

I'm still negotiating. The company doesn't want to give that much of a shipping charge break like I thought at first. So I'm seeing if it is feasable to have them all shipped to me (they are coming from England) in one big box and from my home send to everyone. We'll see what comes out cheaper. I'll also update that information as things become clear. Evidently they have never dealt with folks in a "club" who live all over the place wanting to order together to save some $$.

Ah I love Draper. I have a set of their sockets - fricking awesome.

Here's the update: No matter who I contact and what deal I try to make, it works out to just over $60 shipped to my door, and that's a "lot" of these tools shipped to me in one big box. Then I would have to ship them out to you guys and charge you for the shipping from 37918. So it's not going to be $60, but a bit more. I'm going to check the weight of my Draper tool today and see what it would cost to ship anywhere in the Cont. U.S. and post back.

In the meantime, if you don't want to do this group buy, I found that for $66-67 you can get your own sent to you door. So if folks want to order their own without the hassle of me doing all of the foot work plus paying for everything up front, let me know. Since I can't post eBay sales that are not mine in this forum, let me know by email or PM and I'll give you a link to where I'm talking about. Still for $66 or $67, this tool is well worth having.

Even with the above stipulation of me getting them and then sending them out, we still need 10 people to participate. So far with one person wanting 2, we only have 4 or so lined up for the GB.

I've edited the original post to reflect where we are at the present. I need 10 people by Midnight, Sunday Aug. 27 for this GB to proceed. Please reaffirm that you want to be involved. I can't do it for $60 shipped. It will be $65 shipped.

The reason I've done this is due to the "other" alternative and the fact that everything will still have to be shipped to me first and then "re-shipped" to you from me. This is also the reason I couldn't get the price down to where we wanted. Just post up and let me know if you're still in, or have bought by way of the other route, or just not interested anymore. If I have 10 committed at the end of the day on Sunday, I'll still proceed with this GB. Otherwise, I won't.

Okay, unless this really picks up, I'm just going to message everyone to get it themselves for $66-$67, at least that way it's sent directly to you and it will only cost you a buck or two more. Please message me if you have a question.

Quite honestly I wouldn't blame you if you did after reading some of the responses.

I do admire you for trying to help and thanks again for the service manual download!

My simple question is this: If I was able to reset my engine service light with a DIY module I made for 1$ as well

as read the code before doing so, what is so tricky about resetting the service light? Has no one ever tried this?

I would be very interrested in knowing as the link for the reader that I made (which worked) only shows pin-outs

for ECU, Climate Control and Cruise Control.

What are the other pin-outs for? Is there a reason they aren't identified? Anyone know the answer?

you are resetting the CEL (Check Engine Light)

this tool resets the Service Light. The light that just comes one every x,000 miles. it is not part of the OBDII system, but it is accessible from there.

I don't know the answer to your real question though, about the pin-outs :)

I took my Draper tool apart and found wires only connected to 3 pins, but there's a bunch of stuff inbetween...even a memory chip of some sort so it's more complicated than just putting a few wires together with a bulb in the middle. I've read the post you refer to here as well...not the same stuff. Not even close.

Thanks for your kinds words! I'm still on summer break so I have the time to "waste time" right now doing searches, etc. on the web and it's been fun finding new things. I wish you could find a simple way to reset the service light, or even to read the ECC and other hidden Volvo systems with a tool. Why don't you buy a Draper tool and take it apart and see what's inside. Maybe if you're good with electronics, you can figure out how they do it. It unscrews and pops into 2 parts with only 4 screws. I will tell you that only 3 wires are used for the reset.

That's what I suspected, 3 wires, one +12V, one -12V and which pin does the other one go to?

My tool does read and reset the ECU so I am fairly sure that once I know where the 3rd one is

I can reset the service lamp. That's what I'm trying to find out here. There are many more pins

and only 3 are identified (excluding the +/- terminals.) Unless someone with more knowledge

can add to this discussion I'm convinced that at least on the 850 series, if not V70Is as well that

the under the hood diags were simply rewired/relocated to the RS232 plug under the coin holder.

My tool gives the same blink-code sequences as with the 95 and previous owner friendly system.
