Thought I would share this guide for those of you out there that didn't know it existed!
This is great to know when buying an older Volvo (and don't have access to diagnostics tools), it wont show you the specific codes just that there are registered codes in a specific area.

So start with turning on the ignition and then you need to push in the "Read" button that is located on the left lever and at the same time push the button that turns on the rear fog lights (twice / On and Off).
This will then trigger the DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) menu which you can see in the lower left information display.

Once it says "DTCS IN VEHICLE" you can scroll through the different modules by pressing the "Read" button (left lever).
If there is a code registered it will say "DTC SET".

Another good Tip is that you can reset your service light by yourself by doing the following:

Have the ignition turned off and push in the reset button for the odometer (and keep it pushed), then turn the key into the first position, once the orange triangle in the middle starts flashing you can let go of the odometer-button and turn off the ignition.
Sometimes you have to do it a few times before it works.

If this is something that people enjoy reading I might do another post for Mercedes hidden menu.
