Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
RIGHT BRAKE LIGHT DOESN'T WORK. HAVE ALREADY REPLACED BULB AND FUSE EVEN THOUGH BOTH LOOKED FINE. I THINK I NEED TO REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH BUT I AM NOT SURE HOW TO DO THIS.
If the brake light switch is bad, both brake lights would be out, so don't change it. Check the brake light socket to see if there is any corrosion inside, which is usually the problem. Use a piece of sandpaper folded over and push back and forth with a small screwdriver to clean up contact in socket. To prevent corrosion in the future, pick up some dielectric grease at any parts store, and place a bit in the socket. If corrosion isn't the problem, you need to check the socket with a voltage meter to see if there is power to the socket when brakes are applied. If not, you will have to trace wires back to find where the problem is.
