Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Brake Lights are not working.

Recently replaced both taillight/brakelight bulbs and now the brake lights no longer work. Even the third brake light is not working. I assumed it must be the fuse on that circuit, but none of the fuse diagrams supplied identify any of the fuses as the one for the brake lights. Also I have pulled all of the fuses and visually none of them appear to be blown (did not do a continuity test). What am I missing?

    I am having the same problem - all 3 brakes lights are out and there doesn't appear to be any blown fuses or burnt bulbs. I'm going to try buying a new switch and see if it works. Stay tuned. Let me know if you find anything out on your end. Unfortunately I don't know how long it's been going on so hopefully I haven't done any damage to my transmission per Solution #1 says....

I had a similar problem after changing a brake light. If your tail lights work and your brake lights dont then it probably is that you installed your light assembly backwards. Take the light assembly out and make sure that when you install it, that all the contacts ( I had 3) line up correctly. It took me about a week of removing and installing the light assembly to catch this. Hope this helps!

Check the switch itself,on the pedal,most likly if you drive this model car too long with a bad brake switch,it WILL damage the transmission!!

Can't find the fuse for brakelights on 2003 Honda Civic!!


look for a symbol of a light with a brake pedal next to it in the handbook or the fusebox cover, or maybe a circle with a pedal in it. it doesnt sound like the fuse though as the the centre light is still working from what i can gather and all three lights will be wired on the same cicuit so will have the same fuse. to avoid any wasted time and money i'd recommend checking the bulbs first, then i'd be checking for power at the bulb holder with a voltmeter or test lamp. hope this helps

Replaced brakelight switch ,still no brake lights, and tailights


Check to make sure you have the correct bulb in them. Even though the parts store may have had a part number, sometimes they don't get them right. If those are correct check the relays and or the socket itself.

Messed up taillights and brakelights


First, check your Alternator! All lights are grounded and a bad alternator charge the ground causing all kinds of weird behaviour.....

No tail lights only driverside brake light works


Test the connectors that the lights go in with someone applying the brake. These connectors are not very well made. You may need a new connector on the side that's not working.
