99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake light problem

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  My brake lights stay on all the time, even with no key in the ignition.  I noticed under the dash that the brake pedal does not come back far enough to hit the brake light switch.  Is there a way to remedy this? Thanks

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.

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.

The brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment. More than likely located on the brake pedal arm near the top.

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.

Parkling Brake Console Light Stays On


Parking Brake Console Light Stays On The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.

The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.
