I have a 2001 jeep cherokee ,runnig light on the drivers side rear does not work,I checked for power and there is powere to the socket the turn and backup ,work the passenger side works fine.How do I fix

I have a 2000. First check the bulb. Remove the entire assembly. Replace the bulb.

However, I had trouble with back lights and tried everything .including a new directional switch... I finally fixed both rear lights.
Chrysler in their infinite wisdom used one flasher assembly to control everything. Its to the left of the steering column, way up under the wiper area. I tried to replace it myself but getting to it is a b---h. I finally resigned myself to having Chrysler do it.

Good luck.

2001 jeep brake light problem

I had this problem too. For some reason the brakelight contacts are very sensitive to dirt. My solution: remove the taillight assembly, remove the bulbs, and clean the contacts really well (I use a q-tip and rubbing alcohol). You may also find that gently bending the contacts up so they make a tighter connection helps.

Left directional light intermittent to plain out...

I was once a fleet manager with many Jeep Grand Cherokees 1999-2002. We had TREMENDOUS problem with REAR tailight housings. It seem the tailight/signal/back-up light circuitry is embedded in the plasticx of the housing. NO WAY to repair. Replaced with a new one from Jeep. Problem gone. ( at least until the other side went bad ) Not a guarranty, but it's a good chance it has the same problem.

Break light is out

This is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on(2000 Jeep Cherokee Larado).
1) The cause of the problem is heat from the bulb.
2) Remove the light assembly as if you were going to change a bulb.
3) Turn the socket and remove it from the taillight assembly and set it aside(check to be sure your bulb is not burnt out).
4) Look at the opening, you will see 3 flat chrome colored contacts on the assembly.
5) Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".
6) If you look closely you will notice the plastic around the ground contact has shrunk a little bit, this caused the contact to pull away from the socket, causing the problem.
7) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.
8) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.
9) You should be in good to go!
10) Tools: Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.
11) Time : 5 minutes per light
