    Thanks Mikey.

    You are exactly right. I read of the ground problem elsewhere. Inspection revealed a crack in the assembly near the ground. I had to replace the whole assembly.

A bad ground. Could be front or back. Just a note. All the exterior lights run threw the turn signal switch. Don't rule it out. Check grounds first. Run new ones if you have to.

Have you checked all fuses ? Might also want to check for power in/out from the fuse panel to the tail lights.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I had blinkers and flashers no brake lights, and after checking the bulbs in the light itself I dont have blinkers or flashers at all


Just no turn signals in the back now? Maybe didn't install the bulbs tight back into the asm? No brake lights...do the lights work with headlights on and just no illumination with the brake pedal depressed? Could be brake light switch.

Brake lights out on jeep


This may sound too simple, but it's the same with low beam headlights, until they both burn out you didn't know you had any problems. The cops are usually good for helping us keep track of this. Try two new bulbs.All three bulbs are on the same fused circuit so that eliminates that problem. Let me know how this turns out, Dana

You need a test light and unplug your brake light hornance from the bulb have someone step on the brake pedal touch the light to the hornance and see if your getting electrical current back there

I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee and the brake lights wont work


there's a possibility that it might be the socket that the bulb actually goes into. my break light did something similar to that. the socket only cost about 8 bucks from the dealer.

Replace headlight bulb on driver's side


Pop the hood and you will notice that behind the light covering there is a connector that screws into the back of the light cover. Unscrew it and the bulb can be removed and replaced with a new one. Be sure to not touch the new bulb with your bare hands as this will cause the bulb to burn out quicker (its a chemical reaction of some kind). Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Good luck!

The tail lights are out, so the brake lights-Jeep Grand Cherokee


i have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee i had the same problem when i would apply my brakes when the headlights were on my brake lights would go out, i found that my bulbsocket was not making good contact with the socket housing, if you notice when you take off a bulb, look at the light fixture where you unscrewed your breaklight bulb you will notice 3 medal contacts-they should be silver in the socket housing and like a copper on the socket bulb, in the socket housing their should be 2 silver contacts together and 1 by itself the one that looks by itself is making bad contact with the copper one thats by itself on the bulb, what you can do for a quick fix is; get a small piece of low cage wire or a thin piece of metal like copper stick that in to the bottom or top of that metal contact--i did it through the bottom leave the wire or piece of medal sticking out enough for where it can get contact with the bulb (just a little wire is enough to make contact, now screw the bulb on and test it---it will work----i did it to mine, if you need more assistance let me know lmadrid82@yahoo.com
