SOURCE: low beams suddenly stopped working -1988 Volvo 760 GLE

I doubt that the obc is the source of the problem.
More than likely, it's the relays.
They're not easy to remove, until you remove the ashtray housing, which is 4 fixings in total, if I recall correctly.
Good luck.

I had a similar noise, I took apart the strut and the bushing on top of the strut was falling apart. Replaced it with a new one for under 100.00. No more noise.

there is a head lamp switch mounted to the steering column. it has died. to access it you have to remove the cover under the dash. remove the four bolts hold the steering column and let it drop down. find the switch usually behind and to the side of the ignition switch. there will be a rod giong to it from the handle. remove and replace the switch and assemble in reverse order

Hi, the problem you are having is with the switch itself, this is a common problem so the switch is not expensive to buy.

once you replace the switch the lights will work as normal.

if it was just one light not working then you could say bulb if the high beam wasnt working then you could say it was fuse or relay but as you have high beam this would rule out them being the fault.

now the only other problem it could be is a wire so give the wires a bit of a wiggle at the back of the head lights then give them a try if they then work you may need to do some soldering to fix a loose wire but if they still dont work then this would suggest the switch itself is at fault.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

1986 volvo headlights won't turn on


Most common problem is burned connectors at the relay that switches from high to low beams. I think that in '86, the relay was still inside the car above the driver's left foot. If not there, it is toward the front of the passenger compartment on the driver side, between the front inner fender and the battery. If it clicks when you move the dimmer switch, you can follow the click to find it. If the wires are good, the relay contacts may have failed.
On my '91, I lost the low beams because the headlight circuit in the bulb failure sensor had failed. The bulb failure sensor was an orange can-shaped device directly below the steering column under the dash. The headlight low beam wires were gray, as I recall. A new sensor was $150, so I cut the wires and bypassed it. I figured I could tell if I had a low beam burned out. I did not need a warning light for that. The bulb failure sensor still worked for the tail lights.

MOT failure


I can almost guarantee somebody has installed your bulbs the wrong way round I've seen this before many times, of course we're talking about Main beam headlight bulbs, I speak as a Renault technician.
I suggest you take it to the main dealer, I hope I have been helpful.

Headlight main beam not working


Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1 - Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch and theheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights will goon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will have nohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to ordering therelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burn out at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
You can sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off the cover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To perform this repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:

Head lights wont turn off


if you are saying the front side lights are going off but the headlights remain on ? then could you try this ? put the h/lights on main beam mode then whilst on main beam turn off lights if h/lights go off now ? then with lights still off put onto dipped beam with the switch/stick if h/light come on it is most probably the dipped beam headlights relay that has gone faulty as the h/lights have 2x relays 1for dip +1 for main beam if the above does not make any difference ? it may well be the switch assy hope this helps
