Customer Question

I have bend trying to reset the time for regular service code after getting the oil changed. It won't reset, even for the guys at the shop. Getting an 045 code. What do I need to do ? It's a V70 turbo 2004
JA: Have you seen this code before? Have you tried a hard reset?
Customer: What's a hard reset. HAve been doing the position 1, trip button etc
JA: What is the model of your '04 Volvo?
Customer: V70
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The guys at the shop (not just an oil change place) had the same problem when doing the regular reset procedure
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I would like to resolve this myself as the nearest Volvo dealer is over 200 miles away

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have tried the regular way starting in position one, pushing the odometer button, then position two etc. I have also tried
disconnecting the battery for 24 hours and trying again with the standard position one luck. (I did that as that is
what my mechanic said to try)
