2004 Volvo S60 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles
I just purchased this car: 2004 volvo s60 awd with the bi-xenon lamps.
Bought it with 1 lamp working and the warning on the dash saying low beam bulb failure.
This car uses the HID bulb.
The easy solution is to replace the bulb that is not working.
Not so fast !-->>>> While I was driving the warning light went out and I noticed that the headlamp that was out was NOW working. (The reflection of the bumper of the car head confirmed this)
Went home and the bulb went out again !
So upon googling I found that solving this is a can of worms.
So where do I start?
I hear: ballast is gone bad, or ignitor is bad, and there snake oil websites selling HID kits. The bulb is good so something is off.
I am going to reseat/tighten the bulbs again just to make sure that its all secure.
Then what else can I do. I have no electrical tools.
Dealer stories on forums is $300 upwards upto $1200 to fix a bulb problem.A bulb problem!
Need some expert on carpros to give me a solution.
have the same problem?
