"position light" is a rear parking light which has failed or become unseated. Sometimes you can knock on the tail light housing and they will come back on, but they burn out shortly after regardless.

These and the low beam headlamps fail very frequently on these cars so you should become familiar with the replacement procedures.

Check the online manual:

    Let me clarify something: There is more than one position light per side. So if you are looking for one that's out by comparing it to the other side, you might not spot it if both sides are out.

    Thank you for helpful comments. It was the rear parking lamp. Martin

Position Bulb hailure is caused by the rear tail light bulbs, (the message is cryptic at best). I have had to replace my wife's 2006 xc70 about a half a dozen times. the problem I see is due to the holder the bulb sits in. It is a PAIN replace and seat properly so if there is a connectivity issue with the holder and lens assembly you'll get that message. I would typically see it when I hit a bump or stepped on the break. The message would flash intermittently and annoy me no end. Before you put the bulb\holder back in the light assembly, make sure that you apply some bulb grease and also check to make sure that the spring loaded terminals that make the electrical contact are not compressed or bent, if theat are you will continue to get the message even if you replace the bulbs, (becase the bulb was not the problem, the problem was the holder).

Bulb failure position light


most likely your brake light. Also if no brake lights are out, volvo is notorious for putting the wrong bulbs in from the factory. If they work take them out, if they have an orange bottom inside the buld replace the bulbs. I used to be a volvo tech. I would replace both so you dont run into this problem again

Bulb Failure position option


the position bulbs are located in the trunk and you access them the same way you access the tail lights im not sure what the bulb does but its a 10 dollar fix. FYI when you replace the bulb the message center will still tell you that it has failed you have to take it to the dealer to have them to erase the message (i just left mine it seemed a waist of money)

"SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT"...message


If you have SRS and "brake failure" it should be taken to a dealer. a shadetree mechanic will screw more up than he will fix in this case. trust me on this! you will pay a price, but will save you more $ and less headache in the longrun.
