2007 S40 passenger side tail light issue

Post by VolvoRollo » Thu Jul 04, 2019 5:09 am

My son has a 2007 S40. Passenger side tail light was out. I bought (2) 7528 Sylvania bulbs and replaced. They came on for a moment and went out. I figured the "housing" for all the bulbs had a short. I bought a new housing from local Volvo dealer $40, replaced all the bulbs and cranked it up and it worked all lights were working. I assumed problem was solved.
Last evening my son goes to drive his car and returns inside stating his tail light was not on. Turn signal, back up all work . Tail light does not work consistently , it might come on one time you crank it and the next time it will not.
What should I do next?

Your current loco Volvo dealer sold you a used and defective housing. I'd go to another Volvo dealer and pay for the higher price unit.
