    I just bought a nice 2001 V70 T5 and like it a lot. However, there is an
    error message on the display that says:

    Bulb Failure
    Position Lamp

    What the heck is a position lamp? I've walked the car and can't see
    anything burned out. The book doesn't mention a position lamp.

    Any suggestions?

    Try to move connector to lamps if it will not solve the issue try to
    disconnect main connector to CEM and check pins. Reconnect mentioned
    connector and evaluate situation finally.

    One of the rear 4, tail lamp bulbs are out.
    There are 2 taillight bulbs on each side.
    One is above the other.
    Look again and you will probably see that one is out.

    Yes, that was it. Sure wish it was better documented. All fixed now.

    I have the same '01 T5 wagon and, now and then, get the same message. I
    found that if one taps sharply on the red plastic rear lens the light will
    function once again and the error message will vanish. I should get this
    problem fixed while it's still on warranty, but it will never happen in
    front of the dealer's service writer.

    Just tell the service advisor that you are interminently getting Bulb
    failure Position Lamp message in the (DIM) Driver Information module
    Then the technician will replace all of the position Bulbs
    Note if you are a do it your self person always change all of the bulbs
    @ the same time
