Taillight bulb needs replacing, high above brake light at approx height of bottom of side widow.
Remove plastic panel at interior rear corner, remove thin backing insulation and reach up with fingers between metal flanges. Feel for a plastic "fin" approx 3" long x 1" wide that is attached to lightbulb. Similar "fin" for brake light is visible (white color). You need to feel above this. Fin is probably gray color, but you can't see it. Twist slightly counterclockwise and pull out. Bulb is attached to end of "fin". Insert new bulb and replace.

Search web for "Brake Light Buld Failure Warning". This is a tiny circuit on the driver's side of the brake light unit. Remove the brake light unit from the rear. Get a replacement or do a bypass.

What is bulb position light failure? what is whistling noise mean once the car warms up

Bulb position light failure indicates that you have a burned bulb somewhere around the car. Check all of them. Brake lights, parking lights, flasher and so and so.

This is a very common problem with Volvo.

You could alo get this problem eventhough no bulb is burned. If it's the case, test each bulb contact in their socket playing with them. Make sure you put some electric grease on contact replacing the bulbs.

Check if there were a recall for your specific vehicule and if it has been done on yours. I know that during the years, some recalls were adressing this type of problem.

Regarding whistling noise during warm up try to remove oil filling cap during engine is running. if the noise stops it's probably the PCV that is blocked and need to be replaced. If it doesn't fix it, let us know and we will go more in depth.
Hope it helped

Bulb failure position light

most likely your brake light. Also if no brake lights are out, volvo is notorious for putting the wrong bulbs in from the factory. If they work take them out, if they have an orange bottom inside the buld replace the bulbs. I used to be a volvo tech. I would replace both so you dont run into this problem again

Bulb failure, position light

Bulb failure, position light means you have a burned out light bulb somewhere. I had the same problem on my 2002 s60. It looked like all the lights were working but I found out that there are several bulbs in the tail lights, so even though the tail lights were working there was in fact a burned out bulb. Look at the bulbs a bit closer and you will probably find one thats bad.
