91 Volvo 240 wagon. Right side brake lights do not work. All other lights work. Bulb is good. Fuse is good. Drivers side fine. I replaced the driver's side rear cluster that is when i noticed the brake light was out. I do not know if that caused the problem. The light could have been out for weeks and i never knew it Thanks for you help

WILL NOT START ALL THE TIME


Had the exact same problem with my 240 wagon. There is a temperature sensor up near the manifold on the drivers side of the engine. This is not the temp sensor that feeds the dash gauge, but one that tells the engine control module whether you are starting hot or cold. Mine was cracked, so the engine computer would get a cold start signal even after the engine ran warm, and would flood. This can be a difficult problem to diagnose and an expensive one when mechanics start swapping parts. You cannot see this sensor, but you can feel it (when the block is cold, please) right under the exhaust manifiold. A replacement is about $80 plus labor. Even my very experienced Volvo mechanic overlooked it. But the car would start and run fine, then leave me stuck when I tried to restart it. After calling AAA for a tow, the temp sensor would reset, then the car would start normally. Cheers. The 240 is a great car - I ran mine up to 235,000 miles; now I have a 740 with the same engine.

Brake Lights Come On With The Running Lites


With all of the lighting circuits going through the Lamp Outage Module (LOM) I think replacing all the bulbs and insuring that they are the correct bulbs would be a good first step. If the problem still occurs, then I would have to suspect a bad LOM and a replacement would be needed. You can get a new one from a dealer or possibly a salvage yard near you by checking www.car-parts.com.


let me know if you have any further questions or need any more help



my best to you
