I seem to remember a ligh ing control module in there somewhere... Try that. Of course you checked the bulb sockets for proper grounding as well as for power, right?

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. All 3 brake lights dont work i have replaced the brake light switch


have you check for power at the sockets for the brake light. if you have no power and as you say the brake light switch is good then you have a brake in the wire between the two that you will have to find and repair.

Brake and tailgate sometimes works


Since tail lights are not part of the brake switch, I wouldn't think so. This sounds more like a bad fuse or some other fault. Do either of the turn signals work? Are the turn signals a part of the brake lights or are they independent?

Brake light not working in a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


first check fuse, then check bulbs if not either of those then bad brake switch, which is located at the top of the brake pedal. I'm sure you're reading this thinking ok **** I know it's not the bulbs......I have a 99 that had no brake lights at all. Like a **** I didn't check the bulbs til last thing what's the odds of all 3 bulbs blowing at the same time. They were though, all 3 blown.

Back right light is out


Well. The rear brake light go out is a command problem for the 99-04 Jeep WJ. I personally think there is a short somewhere from the factory design.

Brake Light doesn't work when headlights on


Have you tried replacing your brake light switch located under the dash on the brake pedal or it could be a short in the wire. You need a test light and unplug your brake light hornance from the bulb have someone step on the brake pedal touch the light to the hornance and see if your getting electrical current back there

Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced.  It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store.  If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch.  Hope this helps!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake light problem


You can adjust the switch by putting your thumbs on either side of the switch plunger and pushing toward the brake lever. The switch shaft will ratchet into the new position which is will then be depressed by the brake lever when it is the brake is not being depressed.
