Check for power to the switch but as this vehicle was sold without front fogs then check with the local vehicle inspection garage thats its ok to fit them as it may not be on the paperwork for the vehicle and it could fail the test ,well this is spain home of the paperwork wannabies

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

Yes switch is the problem. Volvo claim they sell very few switches, probably because people bought new cars instead. Problem can be associated with failed ignition coils (2 of) but one does not cause the other but very confusing. Engine fails intermittently or conks out.
Reset battery earth connection on chassis bad design here. Clean off paint and thread also bolt coating. Even better, use brass bolt but do not overtighten. Volvo will try to get you to replace alternator which is not necessary.
Failing battery will light up all the warning lights but will not isolate the battery so if it shorts car will die and not run on alternator. If this happens disconnect battery until you get to garage.
Now you know you can buy an old S40 with confidence great car and very cheap for what you get.

I have a 2001 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo that did not come with fog lights but has the plugs for the bulbs. I purchased the fog lights plugged them in but they didn't turn on. I was wondering if there...


If this vehicle came prewired, and all you had to do was plug in the fog lamps, then 50A fuse 7 in the power distribution center would be hot at all times, applying power to 15A fuse 24 and the fog lamp relay. Setting the left multifunction switch to FOG causes the body control module to close the fog lamp relay and turn on the fog lamps. It is possible your Jeep came prewired but without the fuses and relay so a dealer could install them to make your fog lamps work. You can check whether the fuses are in the box and OK and whether the fog lamp is installed or just an empty socket. Once everything has been checked and any missing parts installed, your fog lights should work.

Well wire a relay into the circuit, it is easy, the relay circuit is on every relay, they are cheap, you will need a 30 amp relay.

S40 Warning Lights


Faults can happen from day one, on. That is why there is a warning system.
If the warning light is on, you must access the computer system to access which fault code is present. Many different companies manufacture tools to do this from an inexpensive generic one from Launch Tech of China to the original factory unit made for Volvo by Balco. Depending on the fault code, the most common one that I see is caused by the fuel cap either installed incorrectly or not fully tightenned. Check your fuel cap and if it is not installed correctly or not fully tightenned, please re-install. If the fuel cap was the problem, the warning light will go off by itself in a few days.
