V70 T5 Brake Light

The drivers side break light won't light. I've replace the bulb and also the bulb holder, both are a pain to change, and it still won't light and we still get the "Check brake light" alarm message.

    I haven't tested this switch, but only the drivers sides break light doesn't work. The passenger side breal light works as to both turn signal lights. Where is this switch?

    I have both sides out, I get a message  "check brake light "  I checked both lights, all the fuses, still can't find the problem.  The center brake light is working fine so I think the Brake light switch is working.

It is the switch on the steering column with the lever on it, each circuit is seperate for right and left signal lights, so one signal light can work and the other not.

Most European. Cars have connector problems so pull off the connector and check if it burn out.A power probe is the best tool to have in cases like these.

Break light repacement


. Obtain the correct bulb; I got mine from a Volvo dealer, but it does not look like a highly specialized bulb.2. Open rear hatch. Remove the plastic cover on the side pillar next to the hatch that has a speaker vent: you do this by poking a small screwdriver into each of the two rectangular slots next to the hatch, and prying back the plastic cover.3. Remove the speaker by pulling on the two red tabs at the bottom.4. The bulb holder is now exposed. Remove it by prying gently on the flange that holds it in place. It will come out, and you can replace the bulb.5. Reinstall all parts in the reverse sequence.

If i turn on my lights the dashboard light goes out and my inside lights come on. however when i hit the brake the inside lights goes out and the dashboard light comes on


Changed any bulbs in the back latley? if so I surspect so see that they are the correct type in the correct holder if you put a single base bulb in a double base holder.. Double base in holder one side is brake light the outher is the side lights, the single base shorts them together...so when you brake,the brake lights start supplying the side lights... So it lights your dash lights as well look in frount of the car while some one breakes for you and I bet the front side lights com on on their own!
and thats why!! VERY COMMERN MESTAKE!
O.K.?

How to changehead light bulbs on volvo v70


To gain access to the bulbs, you need to go under the bonnet (/hood) and remove the housing cover on the reverse side of the light units.
Should just be a simple clip, but make sure that it doesn't fly out of your sight;)
Relatively simple for the rears too.
Just plastic covers on the reverse side of the units, with clips that could break, if you are too rough with them.
Have fun.

Brake light, 2008 Nissan Sentra


Open the trunk and locate the trim door that covers the back of the drivers side tail light assembly. Open the door and locate the bulb holder. The bulb holder can be removed from the tail light assembly housing by turning counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Holding the bulb holder in one hand, press gently on the bulb and turn then bulb counter clockwise to remove. Replace with a combo bulb and reverse proceedure to re-install.

No brake lights on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee


First thing to do is chk. the fuse for break lights, if thats ok, than i would say its the break light switch. As far as the right taillight, that could be as simple as a bad bulb.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.
