When starting 2004 S80 one or both of the low beams will not come on. If I strike each of the lights that is out (independently) then lamps will come on. They'll stay on and work fine (even on bumpy roads) until I turn off the engine
and let it sit for a few hours. When I start the engine again the lamps will do the same thing.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Volvo. The Volvo Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Depends on complexity - honestly - and I'm looking for a new mechanic in local area if necessary. I have done low complexity repairs including harnesses.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet, gathering info - thinking shunts or relays at this point.
JA: Is there anything else the Volvo Mechanic should be aware of about your Volvo?
Customer: 2004 Volvo S80.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Volvo Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
