I had this problem too. For some reason the brakelight contacts are very sensitive to dirt. My solution: remove the taillight assembly, remove the bulbs, and clean the contacts really well (I use a q-tip and rubbing alcohol). You may also find that gently bending the contacts up so they make a tighter connection helps.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited - Break lights will work if the head lights are turned off, but when i turn the lights on the break lights won't work.


If you recently had a brake light bulb changed, you may have one or more brake bulbs installed wrongly on your jeep, shorting out when the lights are turned on.

Break lights are not working on my 2001 ford expedition


You need to replace your brake light switch which is located on your brake pedal. The reason that the right and left are out and the middle isn't is because there are two sides to the switch for vehicles with three brakes lights. It is a very easy part to replace and is relatively inexpensive. Change that switch out and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

No brake lights on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee


First thing to do is chk. the fuse for break lights, if thats ok, than i would say its the break light switch. As far as the right taillight, that could be as simple as a bad bulb.

Break light is out


This is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on(2000 Jeep Cherokee Larado).
1) The cause of the problem is heat from the bulb.
2) Remove the light assembly as if you were going to change a bulb.
3) Turn the socket and remove it from the taillight assembly and set it aside(check to be sure your bulb is not burnt out).
4) Look at the opening, you will see 3 flat chrome colored contacts on the assembly.
5) Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".
6) If you look closely you will notice the plastic around the ground contact has shrunk a little bit, this caused the contact to pull away from the socket, causing the problem.
7) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.
8) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.
9) You should be in good to go!
10) Tools: Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.
11) Time : 5 minutes per light
