2001 volvo s80 check brake light

Post by Yuri » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:39 am

2001 volvo s80 2,4
When I push to brake pedal i see writing: check brake light.
Sometimes to shine only the top stop-signal, sometimes all 3 lamps, any lamp sometimes doesn't shine. Always there is an inscription "check brake light". If posible problem in swich under brake pedal? I need brake light circuit ?

Just guessing, but I would expect the switch at the pedal to be working since it actually activates the message. Could it rather be an issue with the cables to the bulbs? Maybe also ask on the S60 forum, the S80 forum does have users but much less.

Here's a video if you want to inspect the brake pedal switch

There was everything simply - the relay doesn't work.
But it is strange that brake light works even at the removed socket from brake pedal switch now.??
The brake pedal switch 2001 volvo s-80 is under a cowl. And it have resistance in the pressed provision of a brake - 200 ohms, in not pressed - 1500 ohms.
