Question about 1992 Volvo 240
All running lights and turn signals work fine. fuse is good and so are the bulbs.
Well lets see, under the dash above the brake pedal is a switch that gets actuated by the footpedal to activate the lights.. check this switch for adjustment and operation, sometime its also connected to certain interlocking systems like the shifter and the steering wheel depending on the model of car and the year..electrical is so much fun to keep up with because of all the changes..but that may be where your issue is...good luck

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 .

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

Try to see if the brake switch on the brake pedal is loose or broken. it's located on the brake pedal swing arm on the back side and under the dash. You may have to pull the knee plate to get to it. They are not hard to replace and are not to expensive.

dirty corroded ground either at wire to body or bulb socket where bulb is inserted look for dirt and corrosion.If available use a noid light and a brick to apply brakes to check for power at bulb socket
