The park,brake light sockets have a tendency to melt. I would try swapping the turnsignal socket with the brake light socket and see if it works. They just twist out.

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!

SOURCE: 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

There's a small space behind inside fender. You can get your hand in there to grab and twist the back of the bulb to release it. You need a flashlight.

Why does my Jeeps 1 tail light not work when I changed the bulb?


Use a test light to check connection for ground or a break in the wire. You can get a test light for about 6 bucks if you dont have one.

Check the fuses as well as the wiring near the tail light.

If all seems good, get a cheap multimeter and check the voltage in the wires that go to the tail light (red probe on one wire and black probe on the other). If you get a reading about 12 Volts (or -12 depending on which wires the black and red are on) the problem is the tail light or bulb itself.

My tail or breaks lights dont work


The 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees had some lighting issues with the tail lights. First check to see if you have power back there with a test light, if you do try changing the bulbs. If that doesn't work, Inspect the bulb sockets to see if they are burned. The issue that I saw the most was the tail light housing being warpped and breaking contact with the bulb socket. The only fix to that is to replace the tail light assemblies. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

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.

2002 jeep grand cherokee. Rear left brake light isnt working


The problem with your tail light is the housing is broken where the socket goes in. If you pull that socket out and look you will see the metal tap will be pushed down and the plastic around that will be broke. Easy fix is to replace the lens but you can get under the metal tap with a small flat tip screw driver and pull up on it very lightly and it should work for awhile.

Hope this helps

No tail lights or brake lights


Check the relays associated with the tail lights, I believe that the tail light relay and the turn signal relay are two different entities. Hopefully that helps.
