Question about Volvo XC90
Check fuses check relays by swapping them out and putting back tap on backside of headlight bulbs gently when light are turned on. Bad fuse replace it, bad relay replace it, headlamps turn on after tapping replace bulbs.

Bad fuse. Replace the fuse.

Replace fuse. If fuse blows again it could be the ballasts have gone bad .

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.
1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.
2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.
3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.
Please post your findings or comments.

Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.

Just went through the same thing. Replaced the bulbs with expensive ones about 3 months ago, both low's went out together. I looked at all fuses relays etc to no avail. Called dealership to ask about a relay or something and was told they go out together for some reason. Sure enough I replaced them yet again and they were fine. WTF??????

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse
