Very common issue is the lamp assembly (dealer item). They are very bad to ground back through the tail lamp filament, lights on the path has voltage on it and the lamp will not work.

Brake lights are all ok until tail lights are on. then u step on brake and one side goes out. tried replacing bulbs and brake light switch and stll have same problem.


It is the tail light housing thats at fault. You need to take the tail light off and pull the bulb socket out. In the hole you should see the metal contact ring the socket seats against. With a screwdriver carefully bend the metal ring out from the housing a little bit and then use a good amount of bulb or dielectric grease when reinstalling the bulb socket. This should fix your problem.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not working properly. With lights off Driver side no brake light when brake is engaged. With lights on and all rear lights on, engage brake - no driver brake light...


The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

Rear driver's side tail light goes off when break pedal applied


I had the same problem. They were on when the headlights were on, but turned off instead of brightening when I pressed the brake. I replaced the bulb and now it gets bright when I press the brake instead of turning off (like it should).

2002 jeep grand cherokee. Rear left brake light isnt working


The problem with your tail light is the housing is broken where the socket goes in. If you pull that socket out and look you will see the metal tap will be pushed down and the plastic around that will be broke. Easy fix is to replace the lens but you can get under the metal tap with a small flat tip screw driver and pull up on it very lightly and it should work for awhile.

Hope this helps
