So today I came across a nice set of 07' headlights and went on to connect them via the original harness. It fit perfectly and it works is making a solid connection. Unfortunately the important lights don't work, high and low. The position and turn signal lights all work. I get a low beam failure warning on the dash, from what I read these should be plug and play. Minus a few software and wiring features I know, but they should be mostly functional no?

Umm... Was your car originally wired/setup for the Xenon lamps ?

No the stock headlights were halogen, I just saw a lot of posts that other than missing software functions like leveling etc. That they should at least output light. Have you ever seen a thread specifically retrofitting the Xenons to first gens?

Compare the pinoutput in the connector of the halogen and xenon headlight. Are they different? Powersupply etc could be in a different position… beam failure is there because of:no xenon-software loaded to cem,missing hightadjustment components,wrong lighting switch installed

I don't recall seeing any threads because I mostly on the XC90 forum for the V8 related stuff as I have the S80 V8.

As others mentioned you gotta do the leg work on this yourself of comparing the components & wiring diagrams.

At this point you would better off with aftermarket kits if you really want the Bi-Xenons
