Question about 2001 Volvo S40
I have a 2001 Volvo S 40. My passengers low beam headlight will not work. I replaced the bulb and nothing happened except that then the drivers side blew. I then replaced that and it works ok. I then decidec to try and replace the passengers headlight bulb one more time. (this would be the 3rd time.) The passengers headlight still will not go on in low but it does work in high. I also checked to see if there might be a wire loose or some connection that might be corroded but was unable to see anything. Maybe I should take a closer look. What else might be the problem.
Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.

I am diagnosing the exact same issue: from checking other forums, I think I'll pull and look closely at the ECM.
If you've found a way around it, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!
