Sounds like air in the brake system. Will need to bleed the brakes to remove the air. May possibly have to bleed the master cylinder as well.

SOURCE: shift indicator light 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.

You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.

There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.

Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.

Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.

Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.

Re-install everything in the opposite order.

Hear air when i push down the brake pedal

If the pedal gets hard then you either have a vacuum leak from the hose coming off of the brake booster going to the intake manifold or the brake booster itself is faulty.

What type of oil do i use in my 1999 jeep grand cherokee limited edition and my brakes sound like air is comming out of the foot pedal when ever i use them...what is messed up so i know what to fix...ty...

Hello Melani,
your jeep calls for either 5w30 or 10w30 oil If you are in colder climates run 5w30 if down south in warmer weather run the 10w30. The air noise you are referring too sounds like you have a power brake booster starting to fail. These are vacuum operated off of the engines vacuum and when you start hearing a sucking sound when pushing on pedal,this indicates the booster is leaking need to have that checked and repaired very soon. Thanks for choosing fixya Melanie and have a great Day

disconnect and plug the vacuum line going to the brake booster under the hood. Now test for noise. If the noise has stopped then your power brake booster may be leaking.

Leaking brake fluid + Faulty cruise control

If you see fluid at the rear of the master where it attaches to the power booster then the cylinder itself is leaking. It's not often that the container leaks.
The hissing noise is very likely coming from the power booster. This must be replaced. If cruise has a vacuum hose that connects to hose to booster it's possible that vacuum loss at booster is causing the cruise problem.If you are going to do the booster, have a good tech take a look at it first. they are expensive and you don't want to change it on my advice alone...I'm not there and can't hear it!

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes make a hissing noise

has your brake pedal seem to be stiffer than usual? the sound you hear is from the brake booster if it has a leak it will cause a noise but you would have a stiffer pedal because the booster is loosing vacuum.
