This sounds like you have some wiring crossed. the best solution is to have a dealer check this issue. Wiring can be extremly tricky. Be forwarned though that for wiring it's usually a diagnostic check and repair. Don't be surprised if this is a costly repair.

1999 Grand Cherokee at night when headlights are on the right brake light goes off when you apply the brakes


The 1999 Jeep Gran Cherokee has standard all-wheel antilock brakes. The new braking system has electronic brake distribution capability, which makes for a quieter, less pulsing and more balanced braking experience. Possessing the largest brake rotors in the sport-utility segment, the Grand Cherokee meets or exceeds requirements for passenger vehicles, which are stricter than those for light trucks. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rear light and brakelight don't work when headlights are turned on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee


My first guess would be a ground problem.
The headlights and tail lights are controlled by the same headlight switch, but the brake lights are on a totally different circuit.
You may have to get a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams needed to troubleshoot the circuits if the ground connections are ok.
The lights involve the body computer and other components.

I have a 99 Jeep Cherokee limited and when I turn my lights on my tails don't work but when I apply the brakes the passenger side comes on. I replaced blubs and sockets.


Had a similar problem in mine. When I applied brakes while head lights were on, the the light would go off completely. There is a computer chip in the tail light assembly that tends to go bad causing the light to malfunction. I just bought a new tail light assembly from eBay and now it works perfectly. As easy as putting in a new bulb but you just have to unplug electric terminal from the light and plug in new light once received.

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited i have brake lights that work when i apply brakes, but as as soon as i turn my headlights on the fuse blows and i have no working tailights with the headlights on. ...


There is definitely a short in the park lights system. Did you just have a radio installed....since the illumination wire sometimes gets grounded and will cause that fuse to blow until you fix that wire.

My rear lights on my 99 jeep grand cherokee do not work when I turn the lights on. They work fine when the lights are off. Any idea as to what the cause might be. Any place I can view a wiring diagram...


These Jeeps are notorious for the retainers breaking that hold the circuit board type wiring against the bulb contacts. With my 2000 Grand Cherokee, the brake lights would work when the headlight/tail lights were off. If the lights were on, the rear lights would go out altogether when I pressed the brakes. The easist fix would be replacing the tail light assemblies, but these are not cheap. My fix was to open up the inside cover of the tail light housing and use machine screws in each of the locations that the plastic tabs hold the retainer against the light housing.
