Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The rear lights do not work when the headlights are on....no brake lights (besides the third brake light) and the turn signals do not work either. Although, when the headlights are off, everything works fine. What would cause this?
The problem is what they call the printed circuit in the tail light. Remove the twist off light bulb connector. You will see the contacts inside and that the plastic is warped. You can purchase the entire fixture for about $350 if you replace it yourself. A dealer will charge about $450 per tail light fixture. Chrysler won't admit they have a problem that they should have issued a recall for. The problem is that if your stoplights are out, you may be involved in a rear end collision. Chrysler doesn't care. What I did was purchase a right angle tailight bulb holder and standard #1197 stoplight bulbs from advance auto supply. You have to trim the existing socket a little and splice the wires for the new light socket, but it beats paying $900 for replacing the two fixtures. I fixed mine about a year ago and haven't had any problems.
