I have a 1996 Volvo 850 Wagon. I discovered today that none of the brake lights come on when the brake pedal is depressed, (even fully). All 3 brake light bulbs are OK, no error message on the dash, and...


disconnect the wires from the brake pedal switch, put an ohm meter across the connectors and move the plunger in and out. if there is a short one way and an open the other way, the switch is good. if there is no change in resistance, based on the plunger position, then the switch is bad.

Well, it sounds like the clutch cylinder / clutch linkage is not properly adjusted or the clutch cylinder is not fully bled, or it is malfunctioning -- it's not fully depressing the pressure plate when the pedal is pushed down, therefore, the clutch is still engaged.

I have a 2001 Volvo V70 T5, that has a hissing sound when the brake pedal is depressed. Any ideas on checks I can do, before replacing brake booster. I am mechanically inclined.


Hi,
Start your Volvo up push you break pedal down, shut your Volvo off with the break pedal down. If the booster is good the pedal should NOT go towards the floor board. It should hold in place.
If the pedal moves towards the floorboard the booster is leaking.

Manual transmission goes into gear without clutch being depressed, also truck can be moved with shifter in gear..help


Clutch adjusted wrong so not fully engaged, or clutch plate worn out.
Pedal should have 1" or so movement before pressure felt building up.
If not, adjust so there is some free play.
If free play is present the clutch itself is likely in trouble or the mechanism is damaged.

TRY THIS I BET IT'S YOUR PROBLEM

Neutral Safety Switch
  • Put the selector in the park position.
  • Loosen the screws on the neutral safety switch.
  • Remove the switch.
  • Reverse the procedures to complete the installation.
Clutch Start Switch
CAUTION
Before replacing the clutch switch or any component connected to the vehicle's control computer, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
  • After replacing the switch, slowly work the clutch pedal and note any unusual noises or interferences with pedal movement.
  • If the switch is adjustable, make sure the clutch pedal height and push rod (free) play are correct.
  • Then check the release point of the clutch.
  • Begin by engaging the parking brake and installing wheel chocks.
  • Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  • Without depressing the clutch pedal, slowly shift the shift lever into reverse until the gears contact.
  • Gradually depress the clutch pedal and measure the stroke distance from the point the gear noise stops (this is the release point) up to the full stroke end position.
  • If the distance is not within specifications, check the pedal height, push rod play, and pedal free play.
  • If the distance is correct, check the clearance between the switch and the pedal assembly when the clutch is fully depressed.

1988 golf 1.3 gearbox/clutch funny sound?


First check the oil level in the gearbox. The noise you hear sounds as though the pressure plate of the clutch is faulty. If every time you press the clutch pedel the noise goes away it points to the clutch. If this model has a manual clutch cable adjuster, try and adjust it to see if there is any inprovement.
