Brake lights dont work on my 2001 volvo s80. All fuses and relays are good. The bulbs are good too. The third brake light and parking lights work too. Turn dignals are fine too. Whats my problem?

Sounds like the brake switch on floor under brake pedal, needs adjusting or its bad.When you put on the brakes, it sends power to rear stop lights. The pedal hits this switch. Good-Day! ( if all else is good )

My brake lights dont work but the tail lights come on when I turn on the headlights.

Check fuses first. Should be a fuse labeled 'Stop' or 'Brake'.

If fuses are good, climb under the dash and look at the brake switch, it's high up on the brake lever. Make sure it is operated by pressing in the brake pedal.

This will either be a fuse or the brake light switch which is on the pedal it's self. More likely the switch as these are fickle at best.

Gear lever stuck in park

Frist thing is to make sure the brake lights are working as the shifter release works off the brake light switch power, if the brake lights dont work then check the fuses and if the fuses are good then you will need to check the brake light switch, this switch is located on the top of the pedal arm, if the brake lights work then you will need to check the release solenoid on the shifter, this is where i would start. good day.

Running lights work but brake lights wont

there are only two things i can think of, i maybe wrong though.

1. check fuse on fuse box. guide on where the fuse is on the cover of the box.

2. check bulbs, brake lights should be double-contact. meaning there is a high and low light.
