Brake lights not working on 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl, 4x4

The brake lights just stopped working last night. The marker and running lights all work, as well as the blinkers and back up lights. It's just when I step on the brake pedal, or pull the ebrake, the brake lights don't signal.
I don't think the fuse is blown, or I'd have a message on my central "heads up" display. There is no warning like when a bulb blows, either. What do I do?

Brake and tailgate sometimes works


Since tail lights are not part of the brake switch, I wouldn't think so. This sounds more like a bad fuse or some other fault. Do either of the turn signals work? Are the turn signals a part of the brake lights or are they independent?

My 99 Jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 has some brake light problems. The brake lights work fine during the day, but when I need to have my headlights on, my left brake light and tail light competley shut...


If you have any extra fuses, try replacing the ones for the head lights and tail lights. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same color as the ones you replace them with, that way the voltages are the same. Another issue is that a flasher could be going out.

Check electric brake system light came on in 03' Jeep Grand Cherokee?


If you think that faulty brakes are OK then fine, keep driving it without looking to find the issue.
If you have ABS, suspect the ABS controller under the brake pump.

Make sure you look really close at the bulbs. There can be side markers, license bulbs, reverse lights, and third brake lights out

There is a couple of switches in the 4x4 system that may be at fault. You would need to find out which one at the dealership. You are not supposed to be riding down the road with the ebrake on which is why the headlights go out.
