Check the brake light switch, it is down on the brake pedal lever, you can dis-connect the wire connector at the brake light switch and check for broken wires at the connector, and then jumper the connector with a paper clip, if the brake lights come on then replace your brake light switch.

There might be more than one switch attached to the brake light pedal lever, the brake light switch usually only has two wires going to it when there are two switches.

If there is no problem with the brake light switch then you can suspect the turn-signal switch to be at fault, as all of the running lights, turn-signals, brake lights, and hazard lights are all ran through the turn-signal switch. You can also try stepping on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch and see if the brake lights flicker or come on.

SOURCE: LOCATE SLOT FOR REPLACEING BRAKE LIGHT FUSE BULBS

Over time, some slots that the fuses slide in to can become loose, which causes a bad connection to the fuse. To fix this, you can find which fuse is the problem and then slightly bend one of the male ends of that fuse and the connection should be restored. The particular fuse it sounds like you're talking about is in the engine compartment in the black fuse box closest to the front of the car. There are three (3) 10 amp fuses grouped together, and you could try looking for a loose connection at one of these.

SOURCE: 2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee Laredo both brake lights

try replacing the sockets in the tailights/brake lights. worked for me. $10 each. i had to replace all of mine because just replacing the brake sockets didn't solve the problem on the right side. you can test it by exchanging tail light for brake light socket and if that works you know it is the socket

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee and the fuse for the parking lights keeps getting blown..(like within 10 seconds of replacing it.)im using the right kind of fuse,so i dont really know what to do now..


Sounds like one of your bulb sockets is shorted out. I have seen bulbs almost melted in their sockets, on grand cherokees in the past. You will have to check all the brake light and bulb sockets to see if they are shorted.

Brake lights out on jeep


This may sound too simple, but it's the same with low beam headlights, until they both burn out you didn't know you had any problems. The cops are usually good for helping us keep track of this. Try two new bulbs.All three bulbs are on the same fused circuit so that eliminates that problem. Let me know how this turns out, Dana

Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced.  It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store.  If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch.  Hope this helps!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working


check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.
