Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Rear tail / brake lights not working

I discovered a few days ago that the break light on the drivers side was not working. I replaced the bulb with a 3157 per the owner's manual, but it still would not work. I pulled the same bulb from the passenger side to make sure it was a 3157 (which it was) and then replaced it. Last night I discovered that I had not tail lights or break lights on either side. The turn signals work and the flashers work. I've checked fuses, but can't find one that seems to be burned out. Any suggestions?

    I tried bending the contact tabs several times and couldn't get them to work. Finally, I took it to a local mechanic and was told that the circuit boards needed to be replaced. This was probably a much more expensive fix than it should have been, but at least they are now working. Thanks for the comments.

    I got pulled over last night because both of my tail lights were out, so I need to find that fuse fast.

Look up "fix jeep brake lights". I had a similar problem and just had to bend up the little metal contact tabs on the brake light assembly using a small flat head screwdriver-they were not contacting the bulb well. Took a whole five minutes and all is well.

How do i change the brake light on jeep liberty 2006?


1) You will need to open the rear swing door.

2) On the inside jam there are two torx headed screws (T-15's if I remember correctly).

3) Unscrew the two torx screws.

4) The light is now held by two mounting tabs (small spherical headed plastic sets that go through a rubber grommet).

5) You will need to pry the light casing off (easy pressure with a good size flat head screw driver will do the trick).

6) The light bulbs are twist mount settings inside the light casing.

7) Twist out the mount setting, change the bulbs, and reset the light mountings.

8) To put the light casing push the light casing back on and put in the screws. Everything else will work in reverse when it comes to assembling the whole unit.

Drivers side tail light lighting up at night when head lights are on but break light not working on that side. passenger side not lighting up when head lights are on but break light working on that side....


You probably already know this, however the GMC 2002 Yukon Denali uses the Wagner 3157 (or equivalent) dual element bulb. The running light uses one element whereas the brake & blinker share the other element that burns brighter.

Check to ensure the correct bulbs are being used. Then check all wire harness connections. Since the blinkers function, then it sounds like the connections are good.

It really sounds like there is a bulb issue, so check that first, then let us know the results.
