Both tail lights are out brake and turn bulbs work. My fuses and switch is good but i have no juice to my tail lights


Check if your vehicle uses a backup/reverse/safety switch in the transmittion, this is the most common problem after fuses in vehicles with that type of switch - Jeep Grand Cherokee owner

The backup lights on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't work. Have checked all the things I know how to except the NSS. Where is the NSS located and am I better off trying to clean/adjust it or replace it?


the backup light gets its power from the neutral safety switch on transmission.
\When you put vehicle in reverse it toggles the switch in the tranny to engage the backup lights.
if that plug has the wire broke off the backup lights will not work.

1998 jeep grand cherokee limited fog lights don't work.


This means you have a short. I am assuming you are talking about the fog light fuse. Does this fuse blow whether the fog lights are off? or just when turned on?

If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If the fuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in the wiring or bulb.

I don't know if you have test equipment so first I would say to remove both driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion. Fix that problem if there is corrosion.

Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If you have a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fuse in. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there is no problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if 1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem. Then visibly inspect wiring.
