Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Running lights on front and back stopped working. Only brake lights and brights work. Anybody know what the deal is. I have checked the fuses andc bulbs and this all started at the same time. The only way the brights work is if you hold the stalk like you are trying to flash them.

If you have checked the fuses and bulbs then the headlight switch itself has probably gone bad.

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.
the tail lights have there own fuse and are powered through headlight switch. Do the front running lights come on? If none of them work, switch could be bad if front work and rears dont, check bulbs and power to them when lights are on

I just bought the car the turn signals work in the front but not in the back whats the problem?


Have you checked the bulbs already?
Don't know what kind of car you are dealing with here.
Most vehicles - the brake lights and rear turn signals share the same electrical circuit to the rear tailights. Usually the turn signal switch will separate which signal goes to the back.
Do your brake lights work? Is there a High mounted stop lamp and does it work?
I have seen a Hazard Switch be ON and fuse blown causing the Hazard Flasher to be inop - which prevented the turn signals from working. Turning OFF the hazard flasher brought back the T/S.
Check the rest of the lights - see what does and doesn't work - and do the front turn signals flash? Stay On? Or flash really slow?
Let me know what you find out and if this helps you at all.

Why don't i have any tail lights on my truck? no fuse in the fusebox for tail lights can anybody help me please?


Have you checked that your break light switch has not gone bad? It's located at the base the of steering column, just behind the brake pedal.

Also, check the brake light circuit. Start at the fuse box under the hood and make sure the brake lights fuse is not blown, the terminals are free of corrosion and that the connections are tight. Then check the brake light switch on the bake pedal arm.

I've replaced the bulbs on the rear tail light assembly and the driver's side light still won't work when the lights are on at night.... where is the particular fuse for this problem in the fuse box?


If the drivers side will not light up and pass/side will light up, they run on the same fuse. I would start with pulling the light bulbs out and check to see it there is power coming back at all, with a volt meter, if there is may have to clean off the contact points where the bulb fits in, if not may have to trace the wires back to front to see if something got cut, if you have trailer lights for towing look at the wires there to see if somthing has rubbed the plastic off the wires and grounding out. dose the turn signal light work on that side? and the reveres light work on that side?

Brake light isnt working .. when lights are on brake lights come on ... when brakes are applied.. the light is not bright... nor does my back up light illuminate.. but turn signals do work


make sure that you have the correct bulbs installed and cleanup all the sockets with some WD-40. do your hazard lights work correctly? if not then check the fuse for the hazard/stop light. if its not the fuse then it probably means its a bad turn/hazard switch assembly.

Check the Inside Fuse Box with a Flashlight for Blown Fuses. Then Check the Fuse Relay Box Under the Hood. Check the Fuses in that one to, If the Fuses are all good, Locate the Illumination, and Brake. Replace these Relays. That should get them back on, Let me know!
