On 2002 jeep laredo brake lights dont turn on if lights arent on


That does not make any sense. Do the tail lights work? There are supposed to be separate filaments for brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals. In particular the center brake light should not be possible to be confused with tail lights or signals. Does it come on? If not, then you probably have no brake lights at all, and that is probably because of the bad fuse or the switch on the brake pedal for the brake lights.
If there is some sort of cross over between tail light and brake lights, that is usually from a bad light socket ground; which results in current backing up from one system to another. But then each is usually only half brightness.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that when the engine is ON my left brake light WILL NOT light up when the brake is applied... BUT when the engine is OFF, and the brake is applied, the...


the only thing that should separate the right and left brake light is the turn signal switch i think if tis vehicle has seperate light bulbs for the turn signals and brake lights it will not involve the turn signal swicth. either way ther is a voltage loss somewhere. test with a voltmeter at the brake light switch with the engine on and off,if it is vastly deferent go back to the fuze and ceck both sides of that,then back to the ignition switch.you should probably locate a wiring diagram.if the brake light and turn signals are the same bulbs you will need to ceck the turn signal switcth.this is removeable after taking off the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and held on by two scews very small torx head scews.it is referd to as a combination switch.

1990 Jeep Wrangler Problem:


1990 Jeep Wrangler. Driving with lights on for 10 - 15 minutes. First the dash lights go out followed by the headlight and tail lights. If you pull the dimmer switch back (like you would to flash your brights at someone) the head lights will come on and as long as you continue to pull back on the dimmer switch the head lights will stay on bright.

1989 Jeep Cherokee - Electrical Problem - horn, brake lights, blinkers, radio/cd...


I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.
