You need to Check the Tension on the Belt. If this is Even a Little loose it will Cause this Problem and these Dummy Lights.

The 240 was always a bit susceptible to poor electrical connections in the taillights. Check all the connections at the taillights thoroughly and then work back through the wiring. The other major possibility is that the reverse-engaged switch (is engaged by gear shift) has failed. I can't remember off the top of my head, how to get at a Volvo's switch but a bit of poking around the gearstick should probably find it for you.
Hope this helps - please message me if you require extra info/help Sherwin

don't back up <giggle> ..there is a switch involved, is your trans automatic or manual?
If automatic, With engine off, foot on brake (duh) key in on position, observe the backup lights as you slowly move the shifter completely through it's range... Commonly, the switch needs adjustment.
