Hi, if you have more details about "how to deal with that issue", I'm interested. I'm in Europe and I'd like to brief my dealer about how they should address this problem while benefitting form others'e experience. Thanks for your help,

I have had my Volvo serviced at which time I complained about the headlights are aimed too low. The dealer said they ran updated software and cleared all the headlight codes and that should fix it. The lights are still too low and the dealer is saying they will check but if they don't find anything then there is nothing they can do. I have heard that the lights are in sleep mode and the computer is not recognizing them. Can this be fixed? What can I do?

I would like brighter low beams for my wife's 2006 S60. She has halogen lights and I've heard Sylvania Silverstars are very good. I found Sylvania 9005SU SilverStar Ultra High Performance Halogen Headlights but they are for high beams. Does anyone know of a replacement bulb for low beams that gives improved performance over the OEM headlight?
I thought of replacing with an HID xenon headlight kit but they are not legal in the US and I don't want to go there.

I own a 2005 Volvo S60. The driver side low beam has gone out and needs to be replaced. Can anyone give me good instructions on how to replace the lamp without taking out the headlight housing?

Hello Volvophiles: My wife headed out for some errands a few nights ago, and came back in the house to report that the headlights were not working. I checked and found she was correct, but the high beams DID work OK. I checked the lamps themselves, and both appear to be good. I could find no blown fuses in the fuse panel on the driver's side (left side...USA). I don't believe there would be a headlight fuse in the trunk fuse panel, right? Obviously, driving around with high beams on all the time is a no-no, so I need some expert advice. I can only think either a low beam relay, or the switch on the steering column. However, I have no idea which relay is the low beam relay under the hood. Any ideas/suggestions/diagrams here. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks...vwdawg

I recently purchased a used 2002 S60 for my children. A few times the car has not turned off. My son said the vents were blowing out air for about 5 min. after the car was turned off. The temp. outside was in the 90's in case that makes a difference. It happened to me once also, I parked the car in the garage, went in the house for a few minutes, came back out and it sounded like the fan was on so I started up the car and turned it off again, that took care of it. Is this normal? Thank you!

I have owned my S60 for almost ten years now and I was a little surprised to find my cars fan was operating at full blast without a key in the ignition. During my next service call I reported this activity and they explained that Volvo had done this so the car can cool down more evenly during the hot temperatures. With the even temperature drop they had found that they could eliminate certain problems. So far I have had no problems with the engine or the cooling systems. Good luck with your new Volvo.
