What is the bulb number for the tail light brake light bulb for my 1990 Volvo GL Wagon? I tried 7528's and they work for brake but don't work for night light brake and tail light. Help! Your friend,...


Look at the socket? Are there two contacts? If so, 7528 (or 1157, same thing) is correct (and that's what the parts catalog will show). However, in the case of my 1991 740, there is only one contact in each socket. If that is the case use an 1156 bulb.
I spoke with an expert Volvo mechanic and he told be Volvo used two different tailight assemblies, a Hella and another one I can't recall by name. He said there appears to be no rhyme or reason as to what car has what, and this is the reason for the discrepancy in the proper bulb. The only way to know for sure what you have is a visual inspection on the unit.

Sounds like your overdrive solenoid is dirty or broken. Take off the solenoid and clean it really well, put it back on and see if it works. If not you will have to replace it.
This happened to my fathers and I had to clean it.
Sometimes the tranny oil is so dirty that little bits of metal get stuck in the solenoid area and you have to scrape them off. You might want to do a tranny flush if it's bad.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites


Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.
