Where are the headlight fuse(s) located? Engine compartment? trunk? Cabin?
My passenger side low beam headlight went out I replaced both sides. Both worked for a short time then the passenger side failed again. My message reads "bulb dipped" ?
I must have not gotten the bulb back in the holder correctly because when I inspected the bulb it was smashed. Can a bulb "blow up"? It was working after I installed it and after 1 or 2 trips out it was destroyed! Now I only have drivers side again. I've tested the bulb I'm using to replace and it's good, but there's no power to the passenger side. The fuse is good because the drivers side works. Could it be in the light switch? How can there be power to only 1 headlight?

I was driving down the road and i punched it to go by a guy and right after i went by him my check engine light started to blink so when i slowed down to turn around the engine began to struggle to idle (almost like it was going to stall). This is the first problem i have ever had with the engine.
I recently started experiencing a vibration when accelerating particularyly uphill. I raised car and when looking for loose or worn joints found tht the drive axle is loose as it enters one of the boot covered joints. Loud clicking sound as well. Does just the CV joint need to be replaced or is it easier to just replace the entire drive axle. Or are the systems indicating another issue.
Hey,
Ive had a constant problem with my s60 2.4t for a couple years now. Whenever I hold full throttle it goes into limp mode after about 6 seconds of full boost(1.0bar..stage 3 tune/supporting mods)

Originally fixed the problem with new heavy duty turbo control valve, silicone vacuum lines, and replaced the turbo outlet hose which had a huge rip in it.

Ofcourse the problem is back, but it seems to happen much quicker in the summer months, during cold weather it will often not hit limp mode(brutal limited 5psi)

Ive replaced plenty of parts to deal with boost including compressor bypass valve and spring, all vacuum tubing, heavy duty turbo outlet hose and intercooler inlet hose (IPD`s), boost pressure sensor,intake air temperature sensor, fuel injector gaskets, and I`ve gone over everything that holds pressure when in boost not finding any more leaks (also used a smoke machine that incorporates 10 lbs of pressure with the smoke)

So im starting back over from scratch and trying to get rid of all my DTC`s .
Im getting P0137, P1132, P1237.
Just replaced both 02 sensors about a year ago, so they shouldnt be bad already so Im assuming its something else upstream of the sensors.

plugs and regular tune up items are well maintained. None of the vacuum lines appear to be pinched or loosely connected limiting flow either

ANY help is GREATLY appreciated thanks in advance
what tool is used specifically to remove a transmission coolant line from the radiator? i have tried two different cool line tool removers, to remove pressure clip fittings...please help
