Owning a Jeep the best purchase you can make is a Chitons or Haynes manual. It will have all the wiring diagrams you could need in there. A test light will also prove handy. To see if the lights are actually working when by yourself I just wedge a 2x4 on the pedal and look.

No lights in the back except for top brake light


sounds like a real delema, I would check all fuses first, see how it is . then check wiring @ rear for corrosion, bad connection, etc., inspect closly, next, check all light bulbs, closely, anything yet ? Inspect your wires from back to front along frame rail, under vehicle, for corrosion, bad conn., etc., I'm thinking maybe a main power wire or ground both very important, power to send, ground to send back, what goes around comes around, understand ? many people overlook the ground wire, without it you got nothing, like what you have , nothing !!!! NOW, all power starts @ the battery, so don't forget , those wires need inspection also. your turnsignal switch needs adressed also, in your steering column, and the headlight switch ! take one step @ a time, use patience, check items off as you go, do easiest first, fuses, wires, replace 4-way flasher, turnsignal flasher, get the idea ? you'll get it, keep it simple , cause it is !!!!!!!

I have no break lights or turn signals


Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

Checked fuses, dash lights don't work, gauges do work, tail lights don't work, turn signals work and brake lights work.head lights work but no running lights except when using turn signal. help.


take out the plastic panel on the drivers side in the cargo area. tucked inside the body where the taillight wiring is you will find about 6 to 8 wiring plugs. disconect all of them (dont forget to mark them as you disconnect each one. put in a new fuse and turn on the ignition. start connecting them one by one, you will hear the fuse blow when you connect the one thats bad. it should be either the rear window defroster or the rear wiper. it may sound like a lot of work, but it's pretty simple. hope that works it did for me.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that when the engine is ON my left brake light WILL NOT light up when the brake is applied... BUT when the engine is OFF, and the brake is applied, the...


the only thing that should separate the right and left brake light is the turn signal switch i think if tis vehicle has seperate light bulbs for the turn signals and brake lights it will not involve the turn signal swicth. either way ther is a voltage loss somewhere. test with a voltmeter at the brake light switch with the engine on and off,if it is vastly deferent go back to the fuze and ceck both sides of that,then back to the ignition switch.you should probably locate a wiring diagram.if the brake light and turn signals are the same bulbs you will need to ceck the turn signal switcth.this is removeable after taking off the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and held on by two scews very small torx head scews.it is referd to as a combination switch.

Don't bother with a schematic...they all differ. Use a simple test light and just probe the rear light harness with everything turned off except for the brake lights, only one wire should show power. You can also check the color of the wire coming directly out of the bulb socket. I own a jeep, can read and draw wiring diagrams and have yet to find a diagram that has the same color coding as my vehicle.

Brake Light doesn't work when headlights on


Have you tried replacing your brake light switch located under the dash on the brake pedal or it could be a short in the wire. You need a test light and unplug your brake light hornance from the bulb have someone step on the brake pedal touch the light to the hornance and see if your getting electrical current back there

Brake light and turn signal light not working


Did the new lens come with new sockets? If not damage may have occured there that you cant see. only other possibilty is wiring damage in the rear that may be hard to see. The condition you describe is simple "backfeeding" if you look hard enough youll either find bad sockets or damaged wires close to the lens that took the hit. Hope this helped. Thanks

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
