    This is likely caused by a fuse, or a relay. Check your low beam / headlight fuse and relay. Then check bulbs. If they are xenon / check the voltage inverter on each light for proper voltage to each light in low beam mode

SOURCE: low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do

Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

SOURCE: Volvo S40 Low beam headlight

Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.

SOURCE: Low Beam Headlights don't work anymore

Just went through the same thing. Replaced the bulbs with expensive ones about 3 months ago, both low's went out together. I looked at all fuses relays etc to no avail. Called dealership to ask about a relay or something and was told they go out together for some reason. Sure enough I replaced them yet again and they were fine. WTF??????

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse

Possible bad relay or bad ground. Try tapping the relay with helper watching to see if light flashes.

Where is the fuse for the low beam headlights?


There are 3 fuse boxes in a Volvo S80.

The fuses for the low beam headlights could be in either 3.

Refer to the website below, where it shows a 2012 Volvo S80, which should be similar to the 2008 model for dismantling the fuse box.

I have a Volvo and my headlights do not work...I have checked the fuses and the bulbs. What else can i do to fix this? The brights work but no daytime rinning lights or low beams.


Our Volvo's have a headlight switch for manual or automatic - mine is set that the all the lights and fog lamps come on after the car starts. - check the switch to the left of the steering wheel.
