Turning off 440 headlights

Post by richard47 » Sun Mar 15, 2009 2:54 am

Please can anybody tell me how to stop the headlights on my 1995 1.8 Volvo 440 made for the UK market being constantly on!
I had an American vehicle once that did the same thing and all that was necessary was to remove a fuse but this system must be different.
Can anybody help please?

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

This is part of the day running lights set-up.

If you want to switch off the day running lights completely, i.e. side, rear and dim-dip lights remove the light switch and pull the yellow cable with the spade connector on out of the centre connection.

If you want to keep the side and rear lights on as day running lights but switch off the dim-dip headlights remove the "Dim Dip Relay" on the driver's side slam panel.
