Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driver side brake light works when car is off and brake is pressed. However, when the car is on the driver side brake does not work when brake is pressed. Passenger side brake works in both scenarios. Has any one had any experience with this situation and how did you solve it?

Either a bad earth on the light unit or if american wiring it could be the stop light switch as they have this funny thing where the brake light is the indicator as well ,either way check the ground on the light unit as this is the most obvious problem

SOURCE: Heater problems on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Please Help!!

THis is a know problem with Jeep GC. If only one side is cold and the other is hot and there are no controls error codes. It is likely a broken temperature blend door on the faulty side (w/ dual controls). Dealer charges a lot to fix ~$800. There is a kit and instructions sold on EBAY to replace the part for $100. Seller claims that a relative novice can fix w/o removing the entire dash board as the dealer does. Has sold hundreds of kits....people seem satisfied....you may check it out. Search Heater Blend Door Jeep on ebay. Replacement parts are aluminum instead of OEM plastic.

Self Diagnostics on HVAC system. Jeep GC has built in diagnostics and will return error codes on the temp display if it is otherwise. Simple to display.
1) Press A/C and Recir button simutaneously
2) Rotate driver temp control knob clockwise then release buttons
3) If no controls error a code of "0" or "00" will be returned.
4) Error codes listings can be found on-line if anything but zero

Dealers charge $45 to run the same check

SOURCE: 01 jeep grand cherokee heater works on driver side

You have 2 posibilities.there are 2 motors on the heater box that run the blend doors for each side.That side motor may be bad or worst case the blend door arm that connects to the motor is broken.If it is broken the whole dash has to be removed so the heater box can be taken out to replace the blend doors.Big job,do a heater core while your there if you fix it so you dont have to do it again.

SOURCE: replace rear brake light

Open up the hatch and look for the screws that hold the tail light assembly to the body. After removing them you can gently pull the whole tail light from the truck. You will seee the sockets that the bulbs are in and they twist like a bottle cap to get to the bulb. Just pull the bulb from the socket and reverse what you did to put it back together.

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

This sounds like you have some wiring crossed. the best solution is to have a dealer check this issue. Wiring can be extremly tricky. Be forwarned though that for wiring it's usually a diagnostic check and repair. Don't be surprised if this is a costly repair.
