    If it is the Taillight bassembly, why does both left &right stop working. I don't think both assemblies go bad at the same time. 'NO ????let me know. Thanks

The tail lights and the brake/turn lights use the same bulb but, there is 2 filamants in the bulb. One for tail lights and one for brake/turn lights. So just because the brake lights and turn signals work doesn't mean the bulbs are good. If bulbs are good you can check to see if there is power getting to the tail light assy's by unplugging the connector at the assy and using a test light probe the connector (harness side) with the headlights on. If you are getting power to the assy the test light will light. To make sure, turn off the headlights and test light will go off. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.

    Rating my solution as inappropriate shows me that you are clueless. Since you are "clueless" I guess you don't know how to use a test light or don't know what one is. So I will take it easy on you. If you do what I suggested with the test light it will tell you if the problem is in the bulbs or the assy or the headlight switch etc. GOOD LUCK, you're going to need it!

I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

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?

Rear light and brakelight don't work when headlights are turned on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee


My first guess would be a ground problem.
The headlights and tail lights are controlled by the same headlight switch, but the brake lights are on a totally different circuit.
You may have to get a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams needed to troubleshoot the circuits if the ground connections are ok.
The lights involve the body computer and other components.

If you have any extra fuses, try replacing the ones for the head lights and tail lights. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same color as the ones you replace them with, that way the voltages are the same. Another issue is that a flasher could be going out.

How to fix my right brake light and fast moving turn signal on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The most likely problem is two burned out light bulbs. A burned out tail/stop lamp on the right side and a burned out brake lamp on the left. If you have already replaced the bulbs, then yes, the circuit boards are the next most likely cause of the problem.

The brake and turning lights are on a different switch than the tail lights. Check the fuse for the brake light circuit. Check to see if your front turning lights work. My guess is they won't work either.
