Question about 1998 Volvo S70
98 volvo S70 low beam bulb replaced, connection and wiring seem okay but no illumination. Could brand new bulb be bad too? Is there a separate fuse for left only low beam? I think not but I´m thinking not. Bulbs are $15.00 ea. should I try swapping with high beam bulb as auto store said high beam and low beam bulb are same... They also said don´t touch bulb´s glass area so I didn´t cause it´ll blow. I don´t have a test meter but I could borrow a fluke if someone can explain how to test(settings & what to probe)...
Borrow a tester and touch it to the top of the fuse that controls the low beams (there are separate fuses for high and low beams). If there is power to the fuse, then pull the actual bulb out, touch the tester to the socket and see if there is power getting to the bulb. If there is no power between the fuse and the socket, try tracing the line to see if it got pinched or otherwise compromised.

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.
