Look send it back and buy a kit from "Leurven" on Volvospeed. No problems with these kits.

this should resolve your issue, i found it under a search


"Hi there!

The problem is that the HID's (35W) if powered through the factory wires pull less Amps compared to the halogens (55W). It looks lke in your case you have a separate fused feed to the ballast that is switched through a relay which is controlled (switched) by the factory wires and light switch. The relay pulls even less Amps than the HID's or halogens. The way that I understand the low beam failure check works is that there is an inline resistor that develops a voltage across it which is read by the computer. If the current (Amps) is lower the voltage across the resistor is lower and the computer thinks that the bulb is not working properly (burn't). Apparently there is a fix for the S60/V70 that can be found on the following website: http://www.xenonvalot.com/xenonfixvolvo.html

I have a V50 and unfortunately, the CEM in the V50 does not look like that of the S60/V70. I have the wiring diagrams for the V50 but there is no detailed schematic for what is on the CEM, only what is wired to it. I am still looking for a fix for my V50. My kit has a separate fused feed to the ballast that is switched through a relay controlled by factory wiring.

Anyway, I hope that the information and link helps,

Cheers.... "
