Brake lights dont work on my 2001 volvo s80. All fuses and relays are good. The bulbs are good too. The third brake light and parking lights work too. Turn dignals are fine too. Whats my problem?


Sounds like the brake switch on floor under brake pedal, needs adjusting or its bad.When you put on the brakes, it sends power to rear stop lights. The pedal hits this switch. Good-Day! ( if all else is good )

Brake lights wont come on 1992 volvo gl


Check the brake switch its located above the brake pedal , when pedal is pressed down the switch opens allowing power to go thru the switch to the back brakes . You will see a little plastic stud comes out like a pen trigger in and out as you press and depress the brake pedal . Hope this help .

No brake lights


the first thing is to check all the fuses. theen make sure power is going through the brake switch when its pushed, use a test light with key on there should be a wire with power at all at switch connector and the other wire should have power with pedal pushed if thats okay then check the bulbs, if theres no power to other wire with the pedal pushed then you have abad switch.start with these tests first.

The low beams and brake lights on my 91 Volvo 240 SW won't work


Check the wire connections, also check that bulbs are tight. you may need a new brake switch located on the back of the brake pedal for the (rear lights) As to it all happening at once I have no guess sounds like a loose connection or a wire shorting due to warn wire coating.

No brake lights, rest of lights are fine


Look under the brake pedal, up near where it is connected. You'll have to get down in the floorboard. Push the pedal all the way down and see if the button contact is being pressed when you do. If it isn't, loosen it and move it up or down until it is. If it is being pressed in far enough for contact, it is most likely a faulty switch if you are certain the fuses are alright.
