on the newer volvos, like my mom's S80... she doesnt have to do a thing to her headlight switch. everything is automatic. in terms of the rear nite time lights and lisence lights will turn on once it gets dark (right?)<P>does the C70 have that? sometimes driving under dark tunnels, my gauge panel is not lit unless i turn on all the lights.<P>

Well, you can drive with the switch to position I (parking lamps). That turns everything on but the headlights. Or I guess you can drive with your DRLs on.

Re: (GShyneDM)

UPDATE.... leaving the switch in full nite time position only adds on the inside lights<p>the exterior lights are always the same, day or nite, unless you turn on parking lights.<p>so now i just leave it on night time lights all the time. any ideas if it will have a negative effect by always leaving the interior lights on??

I'd have to check my owner's manual (but it's 22 deg F in the garage, so I won't!), but I recall the C70 has an adjustment next to the light switch that allows you to control which lights come on during different positions. It's a small slotted screw head.

I think it's illegal to have fogs on ONLY (ie with no headlights on). But then again, the beemers and the mercs can turn their fogs on separately. So beats me...

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>we can't? I'll have to check<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><p>seems like there isnt a problem with having them on, so long as no more than 4 lights are shining at once on the road ahead. so two head lights, two fogs = 4. cant drive with more lights like some rally cars <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> heheh oh and like mike said, you cant drive with only fogs..<p>fogs are going to be on 24/7 now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> with my DRLs ... <BR><BR>
