Volvo V40 service indicator?

Jeff, Nigel. Having the same issue, would be grateful for advice (can't seem to find p306 referred to in above answer).

Also have a nightmare with alarm going off randomly (4.30am this morning, neighbours must love me) This is despite the car being deliberately unlocked!! Any ideas on how to just prevent the alarm arming?

The sequence for reseting the upto 1999 model is not quite right.
Before switching on ignition, press & hold trip reset button.
Switch on ignition, wait 10 secs, service indicator flashes, release trip reset button, audible confirmation will be heard.
Job done.
