Reverse lights 89 volvo 240 sedan

Hi,
Your brief description doesn't state whether auto/manual? I would be looking at the reverse light switch on the gearbox.
Take the clip off and bridge the connection with a paper clip or similar, keep it away from the vehicle as you will blow a fuse, turn ignition on and bingo, hopefully Blackpool illuminations back of your 240?
Good Luck!
Please remember to rate my effort.

Reverse light not working what to do


If bulbs are good then you need to check the switch that powers them when you put the car into reverse.

FYI - Neutral safety switch prevents car from starting unless it is in neutral transmission position only.

Back up lights dont work, check fuse, bulbs and replace nutrue safty switch. stiil dont work.


check circuit board at lights and grounds, it is best to use a Power Probe to test as you can apply power or ground at the lights to verify problem.

Back up lights don't work and i already changed the light bulbs and the fuses are all fine


If you haven't checked for power going into the socket, or if the ground is good. I'd say you have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission. When you shift the gears it keeps the vehicle from starting unless it's in neutral or park. It also senses when you are in reverse and sends power to the reverse lights turning them on.

1991 Volvo 240 backup lights do not work


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

Looking for socket turn ligth


Those are Bosch sockets which Mercedes and Volvo loved, but which are a royal pain. The socket is a dual-filament socket  probably combining the tail light AND turn signal. The others are all single-filament sockets. They are NOT interchangeable. First determine whether the socket is really at fault. Sometimes the contact points don't quite connect with the long busses in the tail light assembly. I have successfully cleaned mine. Maybe you can reform the contacts to make better contact. If not,  Ebay has what you want under Volvo parts. The sockets for the 240 and 740 are the same, an d will fit either sedans or wagons. Voluparts in Atlanta Georgia has them too. Any junk yard with Volvos will have these sockets.  I bought a bunch of spares for $10
