Default light gremlins

1986 Volvo 245 m46. This car been sitting for a while. Ive decided to get it lined out to sell. Anway, I got he headlight working properly and directionals working. But no taillights or brake lights. Ive checked the switch at the brake pedal and its working properly. I had tailights at once but when I started it again no lights. Ive checked wires in the back (no power). Ive checked grounds and they are fine? Kinda scratching my head. Oh yeh fuses are fine, which I cleans and reinstalled them. Thanks for any help.

You might have a bad bulb failure sensor/relay. Dave Barton has an excellent write up on the function of the sensor and how to diagnose and bypass it if so desired.

Sorry I forgot to put that in my post. But I used Dave Barton web site and bypass it by his instructions.
