Below I took some snapshots out of an owners manual for you vehicke explaining what the lights you are talking about mean. Also if you do want to reset the service light I believe and I know for a fact in the 1999 the procedure is to push and hold the odometer button. Then turn the key to the on position but do not start. Remain holding it until the service light starts to flash. At this point it should be reset but would suggest if it hasn't been done to get the maintainence such as an oil change done on it. If you want an owners manual for your vehicle, you can email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. Don't worry there is no cost for it. I hope this helps and good luck with your new Volvo.

My 1999 1500 headlights are very dim. My brights are as bright as standard lights should be. What does this mean


1, Find the negative ground connection. clean it and reattach.

2. Headlights don't blow out like home lightbulbs, they start to die, they start to get dim. If yu are working with a two bulb system (one only comes on when you put high beams on) possibly the regular bulb is dimming because it is being used most.

3 try cleaning the globe to the headlight. Check to see if out of adustment. park car about 10-12 feet away form a blank wall. Turn lights on dim. Check to see if the "spot" created by the light is equal on both side. Older cars can lose their headlight "reach" making the bulb APPEAR to be dim when really, they need to be adusted.
it is very easy to adjust headlights.

With no further info, that's the best I can offer.

2002 gmc 1500 hd crew 4x4 abs light comes on after driving ahead a few feet, thengoes off after i shut the ignition off and then on again after i drive ahead a few feet


I don't see the issue

We have had check lights & MIL Lamps
on all vehicle for 30 years

Surely you know that a vehicle system has a fault code,
as the light came on.

It won't go away ,the code is used to diagnose the
system with the problem. Until that is done, you can't
even consider if parts are necessary or know what the
issues are

There is a light coming on in my 1994 toyota camry it looks like a little car with lines coming out of the back of it, what does it mean?


Hello. Please allow me to assit.

The light that you see is the 'rear taillamp failure ' indicator. This light comes on when you have a burnt out brake or taillamp. A sensor in the trunk (driver side) looks after the operation of the rear bulbs,.

When checking the rear lamps for outages, please do not forget to look at the brake light in the rear window, it too is monitored by the rear lamp failure sensor.

Replace any burned out lightbulbs, and the sensor will shut off the light.

What does "service" light mean?


The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.

How does the lightbulb next to the headlight come out on a 2004 hyudai elantra?


Are you talking about the little light just below the low beam lamp? If so, reach behind the headlamp assembly and just pull the connector away from the headlamp assembly. You can then just pull the bulb out of the connector. There are no screws or clips to deal with.
