There should be only one rear fog light, that would be the drivers side. There is a rocker switch up at the dash with a picture of a crude looking light. When you move this switch, it should put an orange light on the dash, at that point, your ONE rear foglight should be on. They are extremely useful during inclement weather. They are bright like your brake light, and allow cars coming up from behind you, to see you earlier

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Fog lights


hi from uk the fog lghts? i assume front fog lamps ? the head lights have to be on dipped beam then the fogs will also work but in uk this is so as to prevent fogs only being used (blinding oncoming traffic ) if weather conditions req fogs to be used for poor visibility ? then the side/tail and h/lights must also be on like wise the rear fog light/s operate the same way hope this helps and makes perfect sense ?? all above is assuming bulbs have been checked and fuse/relay and power to each lamp ?

Front driving lights on rear not but bulbs ok & fuses


Hey Mozza!
If you know the bulbs and fuses are ok there's only one explanation left: A short/broken wire somewhere. Look for a wiring diagram for you car here: http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/volvo_workshop-850techdocs.shtml

After that it's just a matter of pulling out the multimeter and start measuring!
Good luck!

1991 volvo tail lights


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?
