Hey Guys,

The Msg. "bulb failure position light" just came on in my msg. center. Can anyone tell me what this problem is, where it is and if I can fix it or does it have to be taken to the dealer?

Thanks

Carol

Try tail lights. Two in each side. Sometimes they are not blown, but just need reseating. Shouldn't need dealer, the manual will tell you how to change the bulb.

Go ahead and replace all tail bulbs. I replaced one and 2 days later another and another. Its only a few bucks and you'll have peace of mind. Same fault code.

Try slamming the trunk..... This warning is notorious for its inaccuracy.

Ya this has happend to me many times, it usually goes away but you may need to replace the bulb, usually its around 5 dollars.

Yup, slamming the trunk seems to have solved the problem....for now anyway. However, I am sure this problem will arise again, so I am going to figure out how to change the bulb beforehand.

Thx guys

...well guys. You have 2001 S60 - so probably you have the same problem as I had couple months ago - never changed a bulb in tail light. See here to find what's the problem.
...and don't slam the car! It's Volvo!

On my 2001 S60, this message showed up and I found all four rear running lights had burned out. A quick trip to the local auto parts store and $20 later, working fine and no message. Easy to change out from within the trunk.

I would say I get that mesage about 25% of the time I start my car. I just ignore it now.

Of course every time I take it to the dealer it is not showing :)
