Stop Lights Do Not Work??
stop lights do not work when the brakes are applied
I followed your advice and “zingo!” it worked perfectly. The Bulb Fault Relay was in fact the culprit, after removing the plastic cover on the cigarette lighter and the two underneath phillips screws & the small compartment just above the ashtray I had perfect access to the relay panel.
Quotes for a new relay averaged about $130 so I decided to open up the relay and found several questionable solder joints which I reflowed with small tipped soldering iron, the cylindrical relay cover easily slipped off and back on.
Bonus! More on the Volvo 940
The Volvo 940/960 range was introduced in autumn 1990. The new 940 replaced the 740 which, however, remained in production as the basic 740 GL model. A 4-cylinder petrol engine or a 6-cylinder turbo-diesel powered the Volvo 940, which resembled the 960.
The Volvo 940 also launched a number of new safety features. Together with its luxury sibling the 960, a three-point inertia-reel seat belt was fitted as standard together with an adjustable head restraint in the middle of the rear seat, heralding a world breakthrough for these features. Furthermore, an integrated child seat built into the rear seat’s middle armrest could be specified as an option.
These and other safety developments gained the model many international accolades, not least among them the “Prince Michael Road Safety Award” and the “Autocar & Motor” prize for the best safety features.
