SOURCE: 1993 jeep grand cherokee limited no running lights/tail lights.

Id look at the headlight switch and do some voltage tests to see whats coming out of there. Pay close attention to any wires which look like someone was in there already.People can mess stuff up faster and better than the vehicle can by itself!

SOURCE: brake lights dont work

Check the brake light switch, it is down on the brake pedal lever, you can dis-connect the wire connector at the brake light switch and check for broken wires at the connector, and then jumper the connector with a paper clip, if the brake lights come on then replace your brake light switch.

There might be more than one switch attached to the brake light pedal lever, the brake light switch usually only has two wires going to it when there are two switches.

If there is no problem with the brake light switch then you can suspect the turn-signal switch to be at fault, as all of the running lights, turn-signals, brake lights, and hazard lights are all ran through the turn-signal switch. You can also try stepping on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch and see if the brake lights flicker or come on.

The warning lights for the brakes and ABS came on in my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo after I bumped a snowbank pulling out of the driveway. I shut the vehicle off and back on, but they're both still...

Yes it is. I would first look under where you hit. You may have packed snow/ice in between the sensor and exciter ring. or knocked a wire loose. these are located by the inside of the tire.

Check engine light is on my 2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo and is due to go in for emissions testing. It started after getting gas, then it would go off. Now it stays on constantly.

First check to make sure gas cap is on tight. (yes I know, sounds stupid but it's a possibility) If that doesn't cure light, stop into any good parts store like autozone, Advance, etc and have them do a FREE fault scan, they run the scan give you a print out and reset your lights. If light comes back on you HAVE an issue.

I have a 2004 jeep grand cherokee i installed a 4 way flat plug for a utility trailer. I installed as instructions said but have no brake lights on the trailer, Everything else works. can you help me?

you will need to add an trailer light adaptor for this vehicle. this adaptor will combine the brake and signals from two separate sources. this unit can be purchased at walmart, Canadian Tire, Partsource, autozone. trailer shops. it will fix your issue. or purchase the vehicl specific kit for your Jeep.
