    Someone wrote that jiggling the key in the ignition works--but I can't find the link. We'll try this next time and see what happens.

    It's auto on, thanks.

Volvo 1998 S70 headlight and indicators won't always turn on


I have had this happen before - this is the multifunction switch on the steering column. The one on my Ford took about 10 minutes to change (two bolts). My problem - I would turn my lights off, then turn them back on and nothing, then they would suddenly pop on. after a bit my lights would not come on at all. I had to drive with my Flash to Pass lights for a couple of days when driving at night.

I hope this helps!

Turn signal works when headlights are off and doesn't work when headlights are on.


Your turn signal ground most likely is hooked up to the ground wire from the headlights. In other words, when the headlights are off, the signal lights ground through the headlights. But when the headlights are on, with their much greater current, they ground through the signal lights and essentially make it so that the signal lights have no ground. Make sure your headlights and signal lights have their own proper grounds.

Turn signal doesn't work when headlights on


It sound like you have a grounding problem, does the headlight on the left seem dimmer than the right? Check the ground wires and the light sockets for corrosion.
