Where is the brake light switch in a 1988 740 Volvo?

Look under the dash on the driver's side, half way down the brake pedal. When you depress the brake pedal, the pedal moves away from this switch, which allows the brake light pedal circuit to complete, and your brake lights come on. This brake light switch is always hot/on, as required by federal law, so that even with no key in the ignition, if you hit your brake pedal, the brake lights will come on.

On my 1989 olds cutlass why won't the brake light come on when pedal depressed the turn signal is all right?

If both brake light bulbs fail to come on when the brake is depressed I'd check first to see if there may be a fuse that controls the brake light circuit. If there is no fuse and/or the fuse appears to be okay, the most likely culprit is a faulty brake light switch. This switch is located up and behind the brake pedal. There is a plunger that moves in and out acting as a switch when the brake pedal is depressed. It is this switch which possibly may be the culprit.

What happen when you cant get out of park in mercury grand marquis?

THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS NOT PUTTING OUT BATTERY WHENEVER THE BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. CHECK TO SEE IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN BRAKE PEDAL IS PUSHED DOWN. IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON, THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHIFT IT OUT OF PARK. IF NO BRAKE LIGHTS, THEN IT WON'T SHIFT OUT OF PARK. IF THIS IS THE CASE, THEN REPLACE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
