Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have brake light issues. I got pulled over because only the middle brake light worked. I pulled the assemblies and noticed some pretty charred looking sockets so i replaced those. Now I have perfect lighting when headlights are off, but as soon as the headlights come on the lights go haywire. They all work except the drivers side brake light. but if i turn it onto auto lights the driverside tailights dont work at all. I dont think its a ground or wire because they all work at one time.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not

The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

SOURCE: divers brake light does not work with head lights on .

big problem with jeeps 98 and up should be a safety recall but is not; you need to replace the drivers side tail light assembly with a new one, from jeep or auto parts store if available. used auto parts recycler may have one but your taking a chance, used should be 40 to50
dollars new over 100

Check fuse panel, under dash, as well as under hood. Owners manual should also give you map of fuses. May say"park" lights, "running lights", or something similar.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the car is off, the driver side brake light works. When I turn the car on, the driver side brake light does not work. Has anyone else had this issue and if so how...


This is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on your 2000 Jeep Cherokee
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

The other option is to change the entire tail light assembly to correct your problem.

How do i fix the brake lights on my 1998 ford explorer?


It sounds to me that the reversing light has a bad bulb. If you have turn signals but no brake lights I would check the brake light switch down by the brake peddle. When you press the peddle it releases the switch to make connection. Check the fuses too...

Could also be a bad ground or two popped bulbs. I have bought vehicles where I swear the previous owner didn't know how to change ANY light bulbs and just left them burned out.

Also, check this corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on:
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. Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".
5) 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.
6) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.
7) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.


I hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Remove & replace right turn signal bulb


The procedure is as follows:-- Working from the trunk:
1. locate the 2 retaining knobs (doohickeys that you fasten the trunk cargo net to) for the Hard plastic trunk liner near to and inside of the rear light assembly. Unscrew the knobs.
2. Pulling back the plastic liner, locate the 4 studs (threaded posts). 3 will be located vertically in a line, the fourth, outboard and lower. Using a 10mm wrench(small), remove 3 of the 4 nuts fastening the light assembly to the body. DO NOT remove the lowest nut of the 3 in a vertical line, as this does not fasten the light assembly. DON'T LOSE THE NUTS OR WASHERS.

Working from the rear of the car:
1. Hand pull the light assembly from the car body.
2. Remove bad lamp. Twist lamp socket and pull out of assembly. Pull lamp and replace with #3057.
Reassemble:
1. Test light prior to reassembly.
2. Ensure Gasket material for assembly and studs is intact, this keeps water/dust out and dampens movement (prevents rattling and increases the life of lamp).
3. Use Reverse instruction for reassembly.
-------------- The taillight/backup light/license plate light assembly is separate from the brake light/turn signal light assembly on the Buick LeSabre. No matter what rear bulb you have to replace, you must access the trunk area to do so. Open the trunk of the Buick LeSabre.Locate 7 nuts underneath the trunk lid (3 on each end of the trunk lid and 1 in the middle). Remove each one using a nut driver.Manipulate the trunk lid at chest level and gently pull the rear taillight assembly slightly away from the trunk lid.Locate the burned out bulb sockets and then remove the bulbs. Insert the new bulbs into the socket and test by turning on the lights before reassembling.Replace the tail light assembly by aligning the studs inside the predrilled holes in the trunk lid. Refasten the 7 nuts.Remove the cargo net if applicable to replace the brake and/or turn signal light.Unscrew the plastic wingnut that the cargo net is attached to. Pull back the trunk liner.Remove the 2 plastic wingnuts under the trunk liner.Pull the brake light assembly outward from the back of the LeSabre.Locate the socket of the burned out bulb and then turn counter clockwise 1/4-inch to release it from the assembly.Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace with a new one. Test the light before reassembling. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Montana 2000 - Right Rear Light Assembly


Yes, You can cut this and Tape the Wires Back. Get the New Module, Cut the Wires, Do Not just Twist them Together, Make a Loop on each Wire and Connect them together in this way. They are a Lot less Likely to pull loose with this Method. Use Black Electrical Tape and Tape them TIGHT. It should be just Fine. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Removing rear light assembly on honda odyssey 2006


Yes, there is a "spear point" plastic clip that is still engaged into a socket type holder in the front outboard portion of the tail lamp assembly. Pry gently with a tape wrapped screwdriver at the front outboard corner of the assembly and the clip will release. You will then be able to see how the clip works and will be able to align and engage it first when replacing the tail lamp assembly.

2000 Chevrolet s-10 brake lights on.


I have the same problem with my 2000 S10, Is the manufacturer trying to get us killed? I also replaced the brake light switch, adjusted it, and it worked for about a week. I did notice a couple of times that I was getting out of the truck that I got shocked off the door. I talked to an electrician and he said there is possibly a loose ground wire or a wire shorting out somewhere. This is a dangerous situation driving with disfunctional brakelights. It should be a factory recall! Before someone's family ends up dead because of it. I will keep searching for solutions. Thanks.
