Talking rear fog light.....

has anyone ever gotten pulled over because they had the rear fog light on and the cops thought you may have had a rear light out because it is only on one side? this would probrably happen more in the states im sure

Interesting thought, but that could be possible, I'll have to remember that now that I'm a new Volvo owner.

Depends on the year and model. On my 99 S80, all I had to do was remove the socket plug inside the lens. It's already wired so wasn't anything else I needed to do except put in a bulb. One thing I did was "downgrade" the bulbs. The left one is an 1156 bulb (27 watt, 2 amp, 402 lumens) Instead, I put in 1141 bulbs (18.5 watt, 1.4 amp, 264 lumens) Not as bright as brake lights, but brighter than tail lights. Been running it that way for a year now and no issues. If your concerned about amp draw, you could put in LED lights instead. As for the SRS light, you'll need VIDA/DICE to see what happened.
