It sounds like linkage to me as well - jack car block to prevent fall and block tire - do on flat ground and track cable under car. I think you should start under hood where linkage joins transmission. I seem to recall a plate there to hold at this end . not that it is a yoke type movement in transmission. this must be always lubricated. Did you ever have car jump out of gear? was it ever stiff to shift and has car been sitting?

probably a overstretched cable pull, or defective latch, i had the same problem with my truck. pull hood relese a couple times, and go to hood, give it a love tap with your fist abouve the latch ontop of the hood, if that dont work, you will have to go underneath your volvo and release it by hand with a screwdriver, try and lift the latch over the catch

The 240 was always a bit susceptible to poor electrical connections in the taillights. Check all the connections at the taillights thoroughly and then work back through the wiring. The other major possibility is that the reverse-engaged switch (is engaged by gear shift) has failed. I can't remember off the top of my head, how to get at a Volvo's switch but a bit of poking around the gearstick should probably find it for you.
Hope this helps - please message me if you require extra info/help Sherwin
