check the bulb monator. it will cause this problem
Test / Replace brake light switch first (small button depressed by the brake lever when brake is NOT pushed - has only two wires). Test by connectung wires to one another and see if brake lights work. If they work, replace the switch. If they still don't work, replace the bulb failure warning sensor. It is a red cylinder with many (12?) wires going in and out in a round pattern on the open side - it isbelow and to the left of the steering column. You have to remove the panel below the steering column. Pop the plugs with a screwdriver to expose the screws beneath.

Reply 8 from Sean is probably best place to start. Try the bulb failure warning sensor first because it is easy to get to, above the fuse panel. The brake light switch is a nightmare to get out, you need just the right compact wrench and some yoga lessons. There are 2 switches working off the brake pedal, The long round black plastic (easy to get to) one is your cruise control switch. Attached through the steering column plate above and to the right of CC switch is the full metal break light switch. GOod luck!
Check wiring for 12v also the brake switch on the brake pedal.
Have the ignition switch checked. As they age they don't make contact intermittently.
your headlamp switch on the dashboard has a small screw on it. its a 3 position switch. turn it to switch daytime running lights off.
you do not adjust the brake lights check the bulbs or check switch top of brake pedal.
I had a similar problem with my S70 and discovered the headlight switch was defective. The switch had actually begun to separate causing the contacts for the tail lights not to make contact. Try having someone observe the tail lights while you push on the headlight switch. If the tail lights begin to work, replace the headlight switch.
u need to replace light switch
1998 VOLVO S70 Headlamp Switch
In the upper console above the windshield where the two lights are located there is a rocker switch giving the option of On, Off and with Doors.
the ignition switch is bad
bad bulbs and or blown fuse
It could be as simple as bulbs burned out or your switch could be defective.
First be sure the bulbs are good then check the switch.
Have to visit the dealer to have them program the fog lights to the system.
Check the bulbs, check the fuse, check the brake light switch, in that order.
no, is not a relay, your Volvo has a little plastic screw under the headlights switchyou can use a tiny flat screwdriver and turn the are 3 positions, one of them keep the lights off, and lights will work only turning the switch. the other positions are for the automatic mode.
Where. Is the fuel shutoff switch on a 2000 s40 Volvo
When my Volvo broke an alternator drive belt the majority of the warning lights came on.
where is the pnp swich on my v70 volvo
its a Volvo
If the brake lights & horn are on the same fused circuit the most likely cause of the problem is an open circuit before the fuse.
The headlights are designed to be on all the time as this is a legal requirement in Sweden. It can be bypassed via the ignition switch harness by finding the power supply wire on the switch multiplug and isolating it. Disconnecting it here should not affect the main light switch operation. There also may be a fuse for the driving lights which is separate to the fuse for the main light switch. check the fuse box diagram may be listed as driving lights, aux lights or safety lights. If car is under warranty tampering may invalidate it.
broken wire, bad ground, etc?
no fuel cut off on Volvo s60
The switch is under the center console, screws are on the sides, at the base of the shifter handle. Try using CNC Contact cleaner and adjusting the switch position before replacing.
Do the dash lights come on now that you have put in a new fuse...Does the motor rotate or try to turn over....If not, it sounds like you have a bad ignition switch....
