Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Right tail light went out.

I have only owned my Jeep for a month now and a week ago the right tail light went out. I tried replacing the bulb but that was not it. All the other lights work completley fine and I checked the circuits. Is there something else I can do myself?

    I have the same problem, my right break light went out, and it want come on. I replace the bulb but now the whole back lights want come on.

    Same thing here. Think there may be a problem with the wiring on the right tail light. Scorch marks are apparent on the assembly and a new bulb doesn't do the trick. Can take the bulb out and put it back in, then get a few minutes worth of life before it goes out again... Anyone know of a recall. I see jeeps with the rt tail light out all the time now.

I have had the same issue recently. I have a 2002 Gr Cherokee Ltd 4.7L. At first I thought it was the bulb, replaced the bulb to no avail. Then I thought maybe the bulb was rattled loose due to my subwoofer, but that still was not the case. After testing all my fuses I decided to test all of my lights. The hazards worked, back up lights came on, tail and brake lights were all working also but for some reason the blinkers will go out and the right rear brake light will not come on. It always comes back on for me though, so now I just use hand signals when it is temporarily not working. My only suggestion is a problem in the wiring.

I have a silverado 1500 my driver's side rear tail, brake and turn signal is not working. This started before the check engine light came on. I went to replace the bulbs, but the bulbs were not bl


These are not related issues. The problem is a really common one. Most likely the circuit board is bad. I sell about 4 a week for these trucks. You can pick them up for around $20 at your local parts store.

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...


just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen sensor. Cleared code. 3 weeks ago, got oil change, replaced headlights and replaced...


CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE.IT COULD BE BLOWED OR YOU HAVE FAULTY TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.BECAUSE BACK LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT WITH TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

How to replace tail light 1996 Suburban


Hello,
I changed the tail lights of my wife's suburban which is the same as yours some few weeks ago,here is how i did it myself,although i'm a mechanic but its not technical;

STEP1. Two screws inside the tail gate jam.
STEP 2. Pry with fingers or something that won't scratch the paint the tail light out (Forward). try not to break anything

STEP 3. Good thing is the bulbs are interchangeable an they have multiple filaments in them. I was able to swap mine around for some bulbs with unused filaments.

STEP 4 Check all lights after replacement of course. Don't want to make your brake lights work and then your turn signal not work.
Problem solved.

Thanks for using fixya,have a nice day.

REPLACING THE BULB IS EASY. OPEN THE LIFT GATE, LOOK TO THE SIDE THAT YOU ARE REPLACING. RIGHT BESIDE THE TAIL LIGHT THE ARE TWO SCREWS. REMOVE THEM AND TAIL LIGHT SHOULD JUST PULL OUT. MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG IT AFTER IT IS LOOSE TO MAKE IT EASIER TO REPLACE THE BULB.

Why would the right rear running light(tail light) constantly burn out. 4 new bulbs in last 4 months, 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. No problems with left tail light. Automatic, Air, 4 wheel drive, 200300...


I have a 2002 JGC as well and its the driver side one with mine. I changed the bulb this last time and used bulb lube to cover all the metal. It worked for a mile then went out again but didnt burn out this time. I checked the contacts on the base and noticed there was some rust, scraped off with blade and used more bulb lube on those contacts too, working for now.
