    checked the fuses...and the brake light switch eludes me...found info that there's a mechanical one on the pedal or electrical on the master cylinder. Have replaced the throttle cable and since I was under there...I'll look in daylight. What I would give for 5 minutes w/a service manual. I REALLY appreciate this place...and your suggestions. I've lost 5 jobs in 2 years - all out of business. Then I got robbed...emptied my home completely. This volvo's my only hope...and that brake lights thing is the last - I did check that both elements worked...so it has to be the switch. Such a bummer...and I've been trying to find the locations/pictures online for hours..so Thank You for trying - i o u

Brake light switch on 2001 volvo s40=my brake lights work sometimes and don't work sometimes. I have checked all fuses and bulbs. I have tried fiddling with the brake light switch and can make the brake...


Yes switch is the problem. Volvo claim they sell very few switches, probably because people bought new cars instead. Problem can be associated with failed ignition coils (2 of) but one does not cause the other but very confusing. Engine fails intermittently or conks out.
Reset battery earth connection on chassis bad design here. Clean off paint and thread also bolt coating. Even better, use brass bolt but do not overtighten. Volvo will try to get you to replace alternator which is not necessary.
Failing battery will light up all the warning lights but will not isolate the battery so if it shorts car will die and not run on alternator. If this happens disconnect battery until you get to garage.
Now you know you can buy an old S40 with confidence great car and very cheap for what you get.

No brake lights, rest of lights are fine


Look under the brake pedal, up near where it is connected. You'll have to get down in the floorboard. Push the pedal all the way down and see if the button contact is being pressed when you do. If it isn't, loosen it and move it up or down until it is. If it is being pressed in far enough for contact, it is most likely a faulty switch if you are certain the fuses are alright.
