For anyone thinking about doing this in a V60, it doesn't work - the DDM and PDM are responsible for the control of the ground lights in the V60, whereas the XC60 just has straight electrics from the CEM. I've done it in my V60, and in fact in the rear doors as well, but it took a lot of breaking into existing wiring, and using a relay to reverse the signal. And don't ask for an explanation, if you can't work it out for yourself, you shouldn't do it !!

Have you activated them in My car->Settings->Light settings? Two different options there, one for the remote and one for the light switch.

Just out of interest what version of the V60 do you run? My V90 is the SPA. All I did was remove existing ground/puddle lights and fit the projector lights to show the Volvo logo on the ground, fairly bright to be honest.

Thanks mainly to b1mcp, a breeze to check out and exactly as he shows - cable extracted and tested with the footwell led lamp that is the same type, - all works
Now the tricky bit - straight forward LED or logo projector? if the later - volvo symbol or the R Design symbol, ?? - lol
FYI my vehicle is a 65 reg MY2016 (VIN 10th digit G) model XC60 R Design lux Nav

You have to go with the Volvo logo.. R Design looks good, but you could have people jumping in the car thinking it's a R Type Honda...
