Had this message about 1 month ago and have replaced all bulbs from the rear to the front. I have checked more than often and all lights are working but the message still remains. Does any know how to solve this problem?

take out each fuses one at a time ,and clean them,try that first,do not do this ,if you need a code for your radio,get the code first.you may have trouble with the bulb failure relay ,the large round one.try clean the contacts first.

Will the fuse be in the front compartment or back, is there a number on the relay, because they all look the same.

the fuse you are looking for is inside the car, in the passenger side in the car ,number 29 or 30 ,to get details of your fuses ,just google fuses for volvo s80 then click on fuses ,shows were they all are,three places ,engine bay,trunk,and in the car passenger side.

An update to my bulb failure saga. I have replaced all fuses relating to position lights, have again changed all bulbs. I took it for diagnostics and nothing came up but message still remains. I also disconnected the battery for 10 minutes to reset the CEM but this has not changed my situation. Any ideas?

you can have one of two things one is the bulb failure relay,that is what tells you the bulb has failed,the other is software reset,but i would go for the relay,so google bulb failure relay on the volvo s80,then go to the second one down,that shows the details .
