    Hello all,

    My high beams go up when I pull the switch, but then they come back down to
    low beam. Any ideas I can check or should I just bring it to the Volvo
    Place.....?? Thanks for any consideration

    Is the headlight switch in the correct position the knob should be
    pointing up not towards the drivers door on a left hand drive car if it
    is in the correct position does the radio controls work / wipers work
    /turn signals work ?? if these do not work then most likely the steering
    wheel module has gone south & is not coming back post back & advise on
    these questions that I asked so i may be able to assist you with the
    correct diagnoses

    Yes, this is almost cerytainly it - took me six months to work out why I
    couldn't get high beam locked in on our v70. It's a silly system.

    Don't know what those are. Apart from disabling/enabling the fixed high beam,
    what else does the two headlamp settings do?

  6. yea...make sure the headlights are "ON" and not just on
    DLY status.....i fig the car may use different bulbs for
    DLR vs. actual headlights....
