Tail light bulb stuck

2002 grand am brake/turn signal bulb is stuck in the mount. I moved the small holder tabs on both sides of the bulb but it still won't slide out. the bulb base is brown -not black. Did it melt in ? or is there some jedi mind trick I'm not trying?

    The backup light burned out on our 2007 Envoy SLT. When we went to change it, the base of the bulb was melted; what's going on?

2002 jeep grand cherokee brake lights do not work with head lights on


This is a common issue with WJ Jeeps. Me 2004 had this same problem.

The problem you are having is probably due to a problem with the brake light holder. What happens is the the heat softens the plastic of the holder and it lets the electrical contacts sink ever so slightly.

The fix is rather simple and very low tech.

Remove the tail tight assembly. Remove the brake light bulb holder. Look at the contacts inside the holder. You might be able to visually see which contact has sunken into the plastic.

The fix is to gently lift (bend) the contact just enough to slid a very thin shim under the contact. I used a small piece of aluminum foil folded a few times. After you slip in the shim make sure the contact is not sticking up too much. Reinstall the bulb and test it out.

Why would my 2002 Dodge Durango passenger side tail lights work but the brake and blinker do not? Bulbs are the same and it has a single fuse. All are good. What would keep the blinker or brake light...


I had a similar problem, you might want to try changing out the BWD - Relay - Multi-Use Part #R4823. It is located under the Dash, beside the Steering Column. I purchased one from Canadian Tire for $25.00 b71e50cc-8a90-4fe6-8fc0-e129852746b5.jpg

Brake lights go on but when headlights are on and i press the brake they go off the brake lights go offf


Brad V's "bad ground" is most likely cause. I'd start investigating with the tail lights. (Not the headlights, but they may also be an issue.) Confirm all bulbs on both sides are good. That includes running lights, brake lights, turn signals and reverse. Some bulbs may have dual-function, the 3157 bulb in the J2K is one that serves stop-light (brake) and tail/running lights. Replace if suspect. Make sure the bulbs are mounted correctly. Rust can cause a poor ground so you might have to replace the socket or fixture if it is grounded to the fixture. By any chance do the turn signals also have issues? Or the emergency flash switch bulbs?

High mount and right rear brake light out. high mount is blown but the other 3 are fine. Can the high mount prevent the other brake light from functioning?


Nope, high mount comes directly from the brake switch, the other two come from the brake switch to the turn signal switch then to the back, seen a couple of the circuit boards bad in the tail lamps, if one side is working good try plugging the good side into the other side and see if it still works, if so its the tail light.. P.S. if vehicle has trailer wiring double check that too, usually that's a huge issue...

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not working properly. With lights off Driver side no brake light when brake is engaged. With lights on and all rear lights on, engage brake - no driver brake light...


The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

Stop light


Rear combination light assembly contains three bulbs. Two bulbs are single-filament and are used in hazard/turn signal and backup light circuits. Third bulb is a dual filament bulb; one filament functions as brake light and other as tail light. A plastic bulb holder mounts three lamps and associated wiring. Bulb holder can be removed from inside vehicle for bulb replacement

Brake lights dont work untill i turn the lights on, then stay on


Hi, are the tail lights and the brake lights in the same light unit?
If so, there is a possibility the bulbs are in the wrong way. If it is a stop/tail bulb then there are two locating pegs on the side of the metal part. If you look, one is higher than the other which has to locate into the correct slot in the holder.

Another possibility is the bulb is wrong, there are double and single contacts. Check the contact on the base of the bulb is the same as the contacts in the holder.

2001 jeep grand cherokee lights


The problem is with the connection from the light bulb holder to the socket that the bulb and holder go into. I believe on my 01 JGC it was the top light that was going out when i applied the brakes with the lights on. If you remove the light bulb holder in the tail light assembly and look at the area that the bulb and holder came from either the metal that makes contact with the holder for the bulb is depressed, or in my case it was cracked. You can use a small flat scewdriver to lift the metal in the tail light assembly, or as i did, i just put some tin foil on top of the metal, then reinstalled the bulb and holder ontop of the tin foil (this makes the elec. connection). seems like a rigged up solution, but made sense to me, and worked!
