if only one side of brake light is out it's probally the bulb, these are easly changed , by first going to auto parts store and getting new bulb , then using phillips head screwdriver remove four screws that are around permiter of tailight that is out , carefull dont loose these screws you'll need to put them back , gently rock tailight back and forth to break gasket seal and pull light straight out of truck it comes out about 10 inches , this modle has if i remember right three bulbs in taillight it's the center one if i remember right grap the white plastic bulb holder firmly and turn 1/4 turn counterclockwise the bulb holder should come free of tail light , grab bulb with one hand and holder with other and wiggle gently sideto side till bulb pops free of holder , use a clean towel or cloth to hold new bulb and insert it back same direction as previous bulb, wipe all smuges and fingerprints off bulb (this would cause hot spot on bulb and make it fail early) reinsert holder into tail light , I use car wax as gasket renewer on tail light border before i put it back in, but thats optional reinstall all four screws back in , there you are done !!
. 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.
I have a 2001 volvo v70 wagon. My lower brake lights are not working but my 3rd (top) brake light works fine. I replaced the bulbs checked my brake light relay checked all fuses and ground wire and all seems to be fine, but the lower brake lights still doesn't work. I need Help!
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!
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.
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.
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.
