Only a dealership, or a repair shop that specializes in Swedish vehicles, can do this for you. I've been told that it needs a relay. WRONG!!! Swedish Auto Repair did it for me in 7-8 minutes tops! It just need to be activated by the Vida software and you're done!!! No downloads are needed.

Well wire a relay into the circuit, it is easy, the relay circuit is on every relay, they are cheap, you will need a 30 amp relay.

My dash board lights just went off.what must be happening

It could be something very simple. You may have bumped the dash board light dimmer switch. It is a small slider switch directly above the rear fog light switch which is directly above the headlight switch. This slide switch will adjust the brightness of your dash board lights or shut them off. If you didn't bump this switch, then this switch may just be bad and need replacing. If everything else works, then it is probably the switch.

96 volvo 850 tail light has light bulb for fog lghts **** hey never turn on. how do they turn on or should i remove the bulbs.

There should be only one rear fog light, that would be the drivers side. There is a rocker switch up at the dash with a picture of a crude looking light. When you move this switch, it should put an orange light on the dash, at that point, your ONE rear foglight should be on. They are extremely useful during inclement weather. They are bright like your brake light, and allow cars coming up from behind you, to see you earlier

Fog lights stay on when light switch is turned off

I just fixed this problem on my wife's PT. It was the switch on the column. Her car has the fog light switch as part of the head light / turn signal switch. The lights stayed on after turning off the ignition and the lights.
You will most likely have to replace the switch.
Unless you are lucky and a skilled mechanic / electrician you may be able to open up and fix the switch like I just did.

Wiring front fog lights to a 2002 freelander ES.

Do not fit these lights yourself,you must take the vehicle to the dealer to have it done .Firstly as vehicle wasnt factory fitted you need the original homoglonation certificate from the manufacturer for the model with the foglights fitted,then you need a installation project drawn up by certifide auto engineer with the relevent technical qualifications (i have them) then they can only be fitted by a garage with an added value tax certificate,then vehicle must be presented to the local vehicle inspection depot to be mechanically inspected all over weither its due or not,the relevant paperwork plus the fee presented ,then a new vehicle registratrion document issued showing the changes.Failure to to this will cause the vehicle to fail its inspection when next presented as paperwork isnt correct ,the lights are ilrevelent as to weither they work or not,but if fitted from new they must work.Also if stopped by the guardis civil and paperwork checked,and they notice then you risk having the vehice impounded their and then on the spot ,big fine and the cost of the removal truck.

Fog lights volvo s40 1999

Did you test all the parts befor fitting ? Faulty parts would need to be replaced , have you wired the lights independently ? If so it shouldn't affect the CCM.

Fitting front fog lights

I just saw fog lights on e-bay for about $125 - $130 + shipping.
So the relays are there? I have not checked not car yet. I was told fogs need a "J relay" and a "white relay with green feet" under the driver's side knee bolster, and a "gray relay" at the fuses. Please let me know if you have part numbers in case I need to order them. (Maybe I will try a donor car from a salvage yard). Good luck.
