1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites

The center brake light on the rear package shelf and the left and right brake lights do work when I push on the brake pedal. However when I turn on the running lights (also known as the parking lites) or the headlites the center the left and right brake lights come on with the running lites and headlites. I carefully checked the bulb filaments and type and the filaments are fine and bulbs have the correct number - 1157.

    Thnkas for trying. The problem has been solved. Rear brake light lamp holders were swapped. The white lamp holder was on the right side of the car instead of the left. When I reversed them, the lmap problem went away. It was my owners manual that gave me the clue.

Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.

I have No brake lights on my 1990 camry LE sedan automatic, I;ve changed the fuse, bulbs and the brake pedal switch, whats next ? whats this about a lamp sensor ?


Yes there is a lamp sensor that is between the brake light switch and the rear lamps. If you have a center light it is connected directly to the brake switch and bypasses the sensor.
I would check for voltage in and out of the brake switch - if you have voltage out you may have a problem with that sensor.

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 later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it'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!

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
