Check the wire that goes to your break light. Somewhere along the circuit it is grounded before the lamp and after the switch. Look on the circuit from the switch to the lamp. What is happening is, the circuit is good up to the time that you apply the break. This closes that brake light switch, When the switch closes it sees the dead short and not the lamp. The breaker popping is protecting the circuit wiring from burning up.

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.

How do you wire a shunt trip breaker with a relay?

- A shunt trip works by creating a secondary circuit in a breaker to switch off the supply voltage/ current to the application. In my case the breaker shunt shuts off a supply to a chiller. -Make sure you have the correct shunt for the correct breaker with the correct voltage for the coil. From there you can run an active from your bus bar into single or 2 pole breaker and from the breaker to a nomally open emergency stop button and from the e-stop button to the shunt and from the coil to line 2 or neutral. -To test the shunt all you need to do is switch on the application and hit the e-stop button and that will switch off your supply to your application.

Is it better to brake or steer to try and prevent an accident?

It really depend on what your about to hit ... If its a person your about to hit brake and brake hard you don't wont to swerve (steer) out the way because you might hit something or someone else ... If your going to hit something that's inadament then steer out the way ... Now, if your about to hit a animal then you don't brake or steer out the way you keep going the animal will move out the way and if it doesn't you just hit it ... Braking or steering out the way can and will get you into more trouble then just hitting the animal; the animal will probably do more damage to your car then the car did to the animal...

Motorcycle insurance is by far cheaper. The reason being if you hit another car with a car you can do some serious damage even kill people.
