Default Problems with Volvo XC70 and electrical hookup

I posted a couple of weeks ago about a problem with my father-in-laws Volvo
and his electrical hookup to the caravan where the brake lights weren't
working when connected to the caravan yet tested OK on a trailer board and
the caravan was tested OK with my Honda. For those who are interested here
is the answer:
The problem is seemingly quite common with Volvo wiring and needs to be done
in a way that involves removing the rear seats (according to the
installers). This was discovered as the hookup works fine......when the boot
is open! As soon as the boot is closed the hookup brake lights don't work!
Information was found by installation company (based in Milngavie)
contacting another branch who had also experienced problems with Volvos.
Weird or what!
