Question about Volvo S60
The remote to my volvo 2002 s60 stopped working and i took it to a regular auto repair shop, and the guy reprogrammed it for me. i was fortunate that he new how. so all this talk about it cant be done, and that you must take it to the dealer is a bunch of bull....

The frantic truth is that you cannot program a remote yourself,the 2001 volvo s60 has an integrated key and remote.
There is a software that needs to be downloaded to the car.It seems you just purchased the remote.
However,When the remote is purchased at the dealer it comes in a plastic package. That plastic package has a sticker on it. The sticker contains id codes.
There are two codes one is 16 digits/letters and the second one is 8 digits/letters.
Without this sticker the dealership can not program the remote/key to the car. If you buy a key elsewhere, make sure it has the codes included.
It's so unfortunate you cannot program a remote yourself,the programming costs between $100-$150.
Have a nice day.

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.
If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.
If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
