Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Brake lights go off when i press them only when headlights are on
This is a well known problem on WJ s. Most of the time the problem is with the light socket. Bend the small copper coloured tabs a bit out. Sometimes you need to bend the other side on the light assy a bit out too to restore the contact.;

Brad V's "bad ground" is most likely cause. I'd start investigating with the tail lights. (Not the headlights, but they may also be an issue.) Confirm all bulbs on both sides are good. That includes running lights, brake lights, turn signals and reverse. Some bulbs may have dual-function, the 3157 bulb in the J2K is one that serves stop-light (brake) and tail/running lights. Replace if suspect. Make sure the bulbs are mounted correctly. Rust can cause a poor ground so you might have to replace the socket or fixture if it is grounded to the fixture. By any chance do the turn signals also have issues? Or the emergency flash switch bulbs?

If your bulbs pop into an inert that gets twisted into the brake housing check the points of contact, try backing it off a little and try it while its making contact on the new area.worked for my stratus. Good luck

It's either bad bulbs (there's a couple of elements in them) or you have the wrong bulbs.

You have a ground problem. Finding it may or may not be easy. I would start with the light fixture and go from there. remember that dodge products the switch is on the neg side
