    Default Check Brake Light at dash display

    Each time brake pedal is depressed the orange triangle lights up at the dash, and displays Check Brake Light.

    The brake light strip over the tailgate lights up fine, but not those at the rear driver and passenger lamps.

    I have replaced the bulb and check the fuse.
    Removed bulb number 1156, where new bulb from IPD/Flosser is 6671.
    No change.

    Any pointer? TIA

    Have replaced a bunch of these in the REM -

    to get left and right brake lights to work in various cars. The center brake light continues to work because it is not powered through that relay.

    I think a shunt in the cargo area fuse/relay box islkinked to brake lights. I also find Left Rear (driver's side in US) has very poor contacts for bulb holder for the two fillament bulb and bulbholder - the long grey plastic thing. For that reason since 'position light out' warnings are invariably that bulb I carry both spare bulbs and bulb holder -harvested at Volvo breakers.
