Question about 2006 Volvo S60

Low beam socket melted, and the replacements I have found only have two wires while the one currently in my car has three wires coming from it. Is it something I can replace or should I bring it to a professional?

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

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

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.

I don't believe the headlights are controlled through the computer. Check around with some mechanics

I have a 1998 dorango, the high beam works but low beam doesn't, I replaced the dimmer switch, and checked bulbs still no low beam

Are you getting voltage to the socket on low beam? If not work back from there, check the ground for good contact, how did you check the bulbs? Sometimes when one goes the jump in current causes the other one to burn out. Try flipping the wires from high beam to low beam and they should come on then. So that would eliminate the bulbs. So figure out why voltage is getting to high and not low by working from the front back

I have a 96 Cavalier and my passenger side low beam does not turn on (high beams OK) & my horn doesn't work either. I've replaced the bulb with no luck. Any suggestions?

The light socket itself could be bad. If you turn on the lights and put a meter on it you can verify there is power at the socket. If not you still have to trouble shoot some more. No power at socket could be wiring that went bad or melted but you will have to remove the socket and test the wires themselves. No power at the wire bare ends you have to go back to the fuse distribution and check that. Low voltage sucks for this very reason. good luck.

Find out the model of the light bulb you use and go to an auto parts store. Tell them you need a plug for bulb type xyz. Then just cut and splice the wires together, matching which wire goes where from the faulty plug. Should get the part for under $10.

The socket is burnt. I have replaced the socket and the light bulb. now the new socket and new bulb is burnt. The bulb is not burnt out it is melted inside. i canwiggle it and it comes on for a short time,...

I've done alot of research on this problem and from what I found GM is aware of the is very common in this model...however there is little that can be done...I myself was replacing sockets about every two weeks that had melted. I tried dielectric grease, different bulbs, and even modifying the high beam type socket so it would fit the low beam bulb hoping it would handle the heat. However nothing worked. Finally I decided to bypass the socket and cut it off and replace it with simple spade connectors on the wire that fit the bulb connections. I then packed the back of the bulb with dielectric grease. Haven't had a problem since...Hope this helps.

Headlight plug w/all the wires coming of it continue to over heat and light blinks off and on. 1993 ford truck F350.I have replaced it twice and I have replaced several switches also each time the plastic...

the headlights flash due to high current draw. It allows you to get of road at night w/o having lights go out. Is it one headlamp doing this? Are both low beam bulb and high beam bulb on at the same time? If yes, it will melt housing. Otherwise look for short circuit. This assumes you did not put aftermarket high current bulbs in your headlamps.

Headlight on 2003 Honda CR-V

From another forum I found the following:

"If you have an '02 CR-V and your low beams aren't working, pull the covers off of the steering column and check the headlamp switch connector and its wiring harness. The CR-V of that model year used the same headlamp switch as '01-02 Civics, which was recalled by Honda in the Civic models but not in CR-Vs. A problem with the switch causes the red/white wire and its terminal to overheat and burn or melt the harness connector and the socket/pins on the switch. This causes the low beams to stop working, while the high beams continue to function.

If you find that this is your problem, Honda's service bulletin (#04-015) advises to replace the headlamp switch and the connector and to splice a new terminal onto the red/white wire. They have a parts kit (part no. 35012-S5A-307) that includes the switch, connector, and wire. This kit is actually cheaper than buying the headlamp switch alone.

While the CR-V wasn't part of the recall, I've found the problem is exactly the same as with the Civic model and the parts kit works just the same. The only difference is that you have to pay for it, instead of having it repaired for free... "

I phoned our local dealership and the kit they keep in stock for $40. Not sure if it will fit the '03 or not, but going to give it a try.
