Question about Volvo S40
Car year is 1998 and mileage is 79000 areas checked are brake light switch all car light bulbs working fine areas not looked at are fuses and relays
Fuses are a good bet. Otherwise might be a bad ground or loose wiring to bulb.

My 2001 S60 just had the same issue. The "check brake light" error message on the dash and the brake lights not illuminating ( the upper center glass brake light would). I found that both bulbs had failed which I replaced. The fuse was okay but still the error message was found on the dash when the brake peddle was pressed. I purchasing a dealer $30.00 brake light relay and the problem is fixed. However, there isn't a diagram anywhere that shows which relay was for the brake light relay. In my 2001 S60, the relay is in the trunk, beneath the driver side removable upholstered cover. The relay panel has ~ 10ea of the same relays and a few other odd sizes. There is a vertical column of relays on the left and right. I found the brake light relay is located between two other relays on the upper right column. It was difficult to reach due to a larger relay on it’s right.

have you checked the earthing continuity-if it's this other bulbs may also partly light when brakes used
Check continuity of live from center to lh & rh lights and/or is there a live at those lights
