I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the brake light is staying on when vehicle is in park...why?


are we talking about the rear tail brake lights or the light on the dash. if dash light possible emergency brake slightly applied or low brake pressure in brake system or low brake fluid in reservoir. Rear brake lights ? check the brake switch under dash as it may have come mis adjusted for proper on/off activation

Brake light on replaced rear and front brakes and before the change when the light firdt came on it made acracking sound , and the brakes still have to be pumped before the light will go off, but then it...


Brake light on dash means that it thinks the parking brake is on. If everything seems fine, then it must be the switch that turns this light on that is faulty.

1995 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 low problems


How long have you owned this vehicle, is this a new problem? If your new to the jeep 4x4, you might not realise that you must be rolling very slowly in neutral or at least in newtral without your foot on the brake in order to egage 4 low. Not trying to be patronizing, just dont know your experience. This could solve your problem because you may not actualy be in any gear.

87 jeep cherokee, headlights not working


Probably a stupid question, but does the car start? Have you checked the battery for proper voltage? (and charge rate). Other than that, I'd suspect a poor ground somewhere causing excessive resistance & draw on that system.(headlamps draw far more than dash lights so power is used up there first)
