Question about 1990 Volvo 240

1 Answer

1990 Volvo 240DL the low beam lights will not come on.

The low beam lights will not come on. The high beams work. The bulbs and fuses are good. In fact when I checked to see if the low beams were burned out, I removed and replace the same bulbs and the low beams started to work again. The problem continues to occur intermitently. Any solutions? Thank you in advance for your help.

Your car has a main relay for the low beam that can stick and will soon go all together. It is in your fuse box. While the light is out (on but out) tap on the relay after you identify which one it is and see what happens. If it comes on change it. Good luck

Possible bad relay or bad ground. Try tapping the relay with helper watching to see if light flashes.

High beams only work but looks like all bulbs are good, could it be the fuse?


On some vehicles there is a fuse for low and high beam head lights. If bulbs are ok, I would check for a blown fuse! or relay.

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

No headlights come on but high beams work as well as the other lights the fuses seem to be ok. Please help.


If your highbeams are working fine, you must be referring to your low beams not working I would simply check the 2 bulbs and make sure the low beam filament is good, theres a strong possibility that your BOTH low beam filaments are bad and require replacement of both headlight bulbs to get them working again its a very simple repair.....

98 volvo S70 low beam bulb replaced still no light


Easiest way would be to go back to where you bought it and make sure the bulb is installed that you bought....and show them. Ask if you can get a new bulb and change it in front of him. Call the dealership and talk to parts, ask if, indeed the hi and lo are interchangeable.
