Check for a bad fuse, or a bad/misadjusted brake switch.

    Sounds like you need to get a multimeter and a wiring diagram and start testing circuits. Make sure the fuse is getting power, and make sure the switch is getting power. Then follow the wires back to the lights. I am also assuming that the bulbs are good since the turn signals work.

Make sure all bulbs are working. All blinkers, tail lights, brake lights etc. I know you mentioned most of these lights work, however it only takes one light to throw off several others. Trace wiring from each as far as possible to locate a possible break in the wiring (shorts). Also, check the headlights and make sure they are plugged in all the way (even tho they work). Also check all relays. One dirty connection can cause all sorts of problems. Jeeps also are known for their poor wiring and common electrical issues.

Tail lights not working but the brake and turn signal works


no year, ? check the haz fuse. at left knee.? a wild guess. no year.
parking lights, the work on the front and rear. not just tail.
the parking lights and brake and turn all are controlled by the hazard module. and on jeeps , turns and brakes are a shared resource (blubs)
major warngler mile stones, all vastly different. are and i quote.
The Wrangler debuted in 1986 as a revision of the Jeep CJ-7, was revised in 1996, and completely redesigned in 2006

Check the brake control switch situated just above the break pedal arm under the dashboard. Could be a wire loose or unplugged or the switch itself could be faulty

The light assembly is grounded to the body through the mounting screws. It sounds as though it is a bad ground. You could run a ground wire to a bolt on the frame from a mounting screw to check for aground problem.

I have a 2003 Jeep wrangler. All three brake lights don't work. The lights are fine because the tail lights work. I've replaced the pressure switch at the pedal with no results. Dan.


just because the tail lights work doesn't necessarily mean the bulbs are good, many brake/tail lights have multiple filaments in them, you can usually remove a bulb and tell with your naked eye if a filament has failed. Another possibility is a fuse. Are you getting power in and out of that brake light switch?

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

1998 jeep wrangler brake lights will not work, fuse appears to be fine. How do you remove switch?


I used to have a 98 wrangler, I had a problem with the brake lights at one point and found that it was do to the blinker switch! This was a little bit of a project to replace it. Steering wheel had to come off and steering column comes off and the whole blinker switch is one piece.

All tail lights in the 98's goes through the blinker switch. I am not saying this is your issue for sure! But it sounds like it.
