Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When windows are rolled up the interior lights flicker when brakes pedal being applied, or when the windows are rolled down interior lights stay on and then they flicker when applying the brakes, but only at night, its driving my GF up the wall ive checked all fuses, but my next step is possible just changing out all relays, headlight/dimmer switch, last resort paying a costly bill at a certitfied Jeep dealer, what could I do before resorting to a dealer?
Have you recently done any work in the doors? It sounds like a short or connection issue with your door lock harness inside your door.

Testimonial: "its not on my 2004 jeep, its supposed to be on my gF's 1996 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo that's having the issues, no door work been done it was originally my mechanics jeep he sold it to an older man and that man gave it to his grand daughter til she got the vehicle shes been wanting so she gave back to her grandpa, and then now since he gotten out of hospital had my mechanic to resell for him, but my mechanic done all work on it and hes done work on mine and really can trust him to to mess up anything, but if something like that stumps him he always suggest to check with dealer in case he may overlook something, so when the lights do flicker u hear a clicking noise in the dash area near a/c controls and glovebox area"

i have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee i had the same problem when i would apply my brakes when the headlights were on my brake lights would go out, i found that my bulbsocket was not making good contact with the socket housing, if you notice when you take off a bulb, look at the light fixture where you unscrewed your breaklight bulb you will notice 3 medal contacts-they should be silver in the socket housing and like a copper on the socket bulb, in the socket housing their should be 2 silver contacts together and 1 by itself the one that looks by itself is making bad contact with the copper one thats by itself on the bulb, what you can do for a quick fix is; get a small piece of low cage wire or a thin piece of metal like copper stick that in to the bottom or top of that metal contact--i did it through the bottom leave the wire or piece of medal sticking out enough for where it can get contact with the bulb (just a little wire is enough to make contact, now screw the bulb on and test it---it will work----i did it to mine, if you need more assistance let me know email@example.com
