I have been reading many post today on this subject and before I go on back under the dash would like to know if i am wasting my time. I have a 99 S80, does anyone know for sure if the Shunt can cause only one low beam to fail? the light bulb is fine and so is the fuse. The problem is intermitent. The Volvo Dealer says it can't be the shunt or relay because both lights would be out.

Thanks for any advise.

Update - Today I took the car back to Volvo to diagnose the problem. of course the low beam came on when I started the car this morning and therefore Volvo can not diagnose while it is working. What I have found is that I only get the bulb failure message when I start the car and it stays on, it does not come on and off while I am driving. Does this suggest there is a CEM failure? hope not. cost is $1300.00 - $1,500.00
