Yes switch is the problem. Volvo claim they sell very few switches, probably because people bought new cars instead. Problem can be associated with failed ignition coils (2 of) but one does not cause the other but very confusing. Engine fails intermi ... 1991 Volvo 740

Electrical system problem. The head lights wont come on, the turn signals will not work when headlight switch is in the on position, Brake light on dash flickers on and off and sounds like a relay clicking under the dash until you step on the brake pedal. Will not allow traction control to engauge. When you try and flash high beam lights the electric door locks try to engauge. anti lock brake light on dash wont go out, I dont know where to stop with all the problems.

Driver side brake light works intermittently, moving or not, in drive or in park, engine on or engine off, etc. Replaced bulbs. Sometimes, the brake pedal switch seems to make clicking sounds that go along with the brakes working or not, but that could be my imagination. The turn signal "clicker" goes real fast and then slows down to normal, but the dash indicator blinks at a constant steady rhythm. Could thee be related andd how can I fix the brake light? Thanks

Cruise control not working suddenly. I had the brake light switch replaced a few weeks ago because the gear was stuck in park. Sometime after this the cruise stopped working, but I can't really say it was immediately after because I didn't notice. I had the mechanic who replaced the switch check it again to make sure the wires were hooked up and he said it was. The cruise light does not come on within the pushbutton switch nor does the cruise control engage with the wheel controls. The

The light switch in my 1993 Carolla DX went out. I had to rig my own switch to make headlights work. Dash light does not work now, but that is the least of my concerns. I need to know how to pull the steering wheel (with airbag) off to replace this switch. Its a mult-unit switch that contains the light switch, cruise, and wiper switch. I didn't want to just start taking apart as the airbag things sorta freaks me out. I'd hate to pull it off and have an airbag blow in my face. Please let me know

My brake lights do not work when I press the brake pedal. They also do not work, when I turn on the hazard switch. They do not work when I use the turn signals, either.
