Question about 1988 Volvo 240
THE LEFT REAR BRAKE LIGHT WORKS, BUT THE RIGHT DOES NOT. I HAVE CHECKED THE FUSE, WIRING, & BULB, AND ALL ARE IN WORKING CONDITION. ALSO, BOTH BACK UP LIGHTS DO NOT WORK. AS ABOVE, I CHECKED THE WIRING, BULBS, CONECTIONS, BUT TO NO EVAIL. ANY IDEAS?
In my own personal experience, you should first adjust the nuetral safety switch, it controls the reverse lights. After that, remove the jaw clip from the back of the tail ight, clean the connections, and the take a thin pick, and close the 2 metal pins together in the different sections of the jaw, with enough space between them to plug them back in. The connections inside the clip tend to expand away from the printed tail light curcuit over time.

Testimonial: "Hey, thanks for the tip! I will try it! every time I step on the brakes the "bulb out" light goes on & it's driving me nuts! thanks again."
I think without being there that you may have a BAD or BROKEN ground connection. Also use a Voltmeter to confirm Battery voltage at the Lamp unit,for all functions.

I have a 1990dl 240 volvo. Tell me if there is a brake lights relay in this model.
My brake lights don't work, fuse is ok, brake switch is ok, bulbs are ok.
