Question about 1998 Volvo V70
Both the reversing lights on my car have suddenly stopped working. I am told it is most likely to be the switch. Do you agree with that diognosis? and could you tell me where the switch is situated please.
There are also relays that control these reverse lights and brake lights,these relays are located on the driver side in the trunk (side panel) all these relays are interchangeable. good luck

Yeah it's definitely the switch. Basically doesn't sense that the car's in reverse so won't turn the lights on. As far as where it's at...that I can't help you with. Volvo's tend to be a little odd...

Tips for a great answer:
The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
