First of all you need to check your bulbs? If the filament seems ok you new to work your way back up the loom, making sure there is no obvious damage. Secondly check your light fuse, this will be located in the engine bay fuse box or the cockpit, use your user manual to locate. If the fuse is ok, check visually and if possible with multi meter, I would suggest checking relay switch in engine bay. If this is ok then check your light switch/stalk.

SOURCE: Headlight failure

look in the o/m for a relay in the fuse panel that controls the headlights it's not a fuse its a little silver box about the size of the search box on this page sometimes these will go bad and cause the headlights to cycle

SOURCE: Headlights go out while driving

You need to check the headlight relay to see if it is still good. Parts store can tell you where it should be and what the part number is when you find it. A good shop will be able to test it. I have found that Volvo likes to play hide the relay under the dash so it's hard to say for sure where it will be.

SOURCE: Headlights both went out last night. High beams

There is a relay that controls the headlights, volvo calls it a step relay. You will have to check that power is getting to this relay. If not, check all fuses and wiring. If power supply checks out ok, you may have to replace the relay. Let me know if you need any more info or a wiring diagram.

I have a 1999 Corolla, and both headlights suddenly stopped working. The low beams don't work, but the high beams do. The fuses are fine.


low beam is a bulb on its own,usually under the big main bulb.the main big bulb works your normal night time driving and your high beam,ie.flashers.if 1 low beam has blown its more than likley a power serge blown the other side as they run off the same wiring.hope this helps.

First of all are your headlights a double filament type headlight? If yes then I would suspect that a power wire to the high beams is broken or shorted. If your high beams are a separate set of lights from your regulars running lights then either the high beams headlights are missing. or has a broken power wire or shorted or...You could check the fuse box under your dash and under the hood of the car to see if you have a fuse for the high beam lights.

loop the main beam to the second light simple ,find the feed with a meter when the main beam is on ,simple to do but be warned here ---make sure the light has a certificate of homoglonation and a E number in the headlight glass or you could face a big fine for unauthorised modification of a motor vehicle ,also this sort of work can only be signed off by a authorised garage with a Value Added Tax certificate and a inspection to change the cars papers at the local car testing station ,or dont drive in spain as they will impound the vehicle

Low beam headlights


Try swapping #45 cooling fan relay and #46 HDM (headlight driver module) relay in the underhood fuse block. These are solid state modules and are not like conventional relays.
