Start checking fusible link wire on secondary positive line from the battery terminal(or follow the positive to the terminal block on the firewall) and check/replace the secondary fusible link(usually about 6-8 inches long designed to burn in two if a short exists.)then go into fuses on the car and replace all that tests bad..good luck

    I'm going to say its probably the fuses. But I just hate Volvo's with a passion.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: issue with dash lights dimming while driving,

If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

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.

If battery wires grounded out by touching each other would that make car not turnover all lights work where do I check relays an grounds

if the battery wires touched each other with out going through the battery --nothing would happen( just 2 dead wires)
if a positive wire end touched an ground wire while the terminal was connected to the battery, there would have been a flash and sparks but little else
if the two battery posts or terminals were connected with leads connected then there would be a flash and sparks and the possibility of an exploding battery

Changing starter,already took out both bolts,how do I get it to break loose?

Disconnect the battery cables before removing the starter. Remove the Positive cable which also is connected to the starter positive connection. Either directly or through a solenoid. You have to remove the bolt that holds the positive to be able to completely remove the starter. in other words it may still have a bolt holding it tight. (3 bolts)

Volvo starters have unusually high problems with the connector cables. Check all the wiring going to the starter. Including the cable negative wire.
I have heard of cases where the starter is removed and the car still does not start . This is because of a bad connection somewhere between the battery, ground, and the starter.

Passenger floor wet on s60 volvo 2002?

Sounds like a leaking heater core or faulty hose connections.
Sniff a tissue after blotting some of the wetness or; it may not sound appetizing, but to check if it is coolant + water, take a clean cloth, blot the wet spot and touch the other side of the cloth to your tongue.
Coolant doesn't have a strong odor unless it is hot but it lends a sweetness to the coolant that is easy to detect. That is why one shouldn't dump coolant on the ground since domestic animals will lap it up.
