Question about 2000 Volvo S80

Turn Signals and Highbeams don't work

The rear left brake light went out and the message center said it needed to be replaced. I replaced the bulb which worked fine, then immediately, I had no highbeams or turnsignals which are both controlled by the lever on the steering column. I have checked the fuses in the passenger area of the car and they are fine. Is there a repair I can do myself? Thanks

    I have the same problem. No turn signals, high beams don't work, none of the controls on steering wheel work (cruise and radio controls), can't change the messages in computer display on dash.

I took it to a shop, the only one I trust 35 miles away. My car had a bad fuse and some dirt in the fuse box. They cleaned it off, replaced the fuse and that fixed it for good. $45 charged.

I just had this happen to me. The computer flashed "ABS system failure" and my steering wheel controls went out, and the wipers, and turn signals/high beams. The really weird thing is that some of the dash went out (i.e. the temperature went out, but the clock didn't).

I figured this was a computer problem, so I just pulled the fuses (the ones under the hood) and put them back in. The computer still flashes "ABS System Failure" but the car runs perfect.

My tail lights went out but my brake lights and my turn signals still work ....what can it be

Bulbs need replaced, your brake lights and turn signals work off of half of the bulb, while your tail lights work off the other half. It is either your bulbs need replaced, or a fuse went bad, but it is definitely something simple.

99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week's the board that the bulbs plug's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Brake Lights Out

Kristie, I don't know if you ever found a solution to this, but I have been having the same problem. I even took it to get repaired and they fixed it saying it was a relay. I think now that they just replaced the brake switch as well. Then, a few months after that, the left light went out. I have checked fuses, replaced bulbs and the brake switch. There is not much more to the system besides the wiring from the front to the back. I then decided to lodge the brake pedal so the brake lights were on, took the assembly out and twisted the light holder as if to take it out, then twisted it back and presto, the brake light came on! So I deduce there is a flaw in the design of the brake light assembly and that the contacts lose their connection the to contact ring of something of this nature. It only seems to affect the rake light, not the turn signals or running lights. Odd.Only time will tell how long this will last.
If you get this, or anyone else see's this, I hope it helps.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke

Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.

Chev Cavalier 2003 only one rear turn/brake/hazard light

I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores
