Sounds like you have a short somewhere in the brake line wiring.

Did you replace the bulbs in the tail lights?

If so...take the tail lights off and check the wiring to see if any wires have gotten smashed. I've seen that happen before.

There should be a hook on the tail light assembly itself for the wiring to be tucked in. And be sure that the wires don't go anywhere near the mounting holes.

Check the switch by the foot pedal. Sometimes it can be adjusted or might need to be replaced. Disconnect it and check with ohm meter. MM85

this is a brake issue and unless you have above average mechanical talent and the tools, take it to your mechanic . people can die if the car won't stop. it's probably needs pads.

Check the brake light switch, this can sometimes fail and cause the autobox to lock in park (you need to depress the brake pedal to get out of park)

Just had a brake job done. My xc90 2005 has 100000 miles. After the brakes were done and car was picked up, brake light still comes on. Was told not to pay any attention to this, that it would cost 1700.00...


While I can't say for certain a replacment module is or is not in need of relacing, the fact that the brake light stays on would make it difficult for you to sell the car and in most states would fail inspection. Ask whomever told you to ignore the light to put that in writting. If your brakes fail in the near future you can point to that written statement. If the repairer refuses to put anything in writing, I'd assume your being lied to.

Check the heat shield around the catalytic converter.

Add me to the list. Just got back from a Volvo dealership in Chicago and was told the 'winding' noise we're experiencing during deceleration in our 2004 XC90 is due to a failing transmission,so i would suspect the same accelerating. hope all works out for you

Your car need a few good screws ;-)

Seriously, check under the handle for 2 Philips (cross) head screws, I think a number 2 Ph screwdriver will work to tighten them.
