Pretty much the same process always used. Begin at the passenger side rear wheel. With the engine running, have someone gently but firmly press down on the brake, open the bleed valve on the wheel cylinder or caliper (whichever you have) then close the valve and repeat the process 'till no air comes out. While doing that, keep checking the master cylinder so it does not go low on fluid or you will need to start all over again. Repeat the same process on the drivers rear, passenger front and drivers front (in that order)
I always finish by going back to the first one and re-checking it. Top off the master cylinder and you should be finished. Check all lines and fittings for leaks....your system is sealed and should never require bleeding except when it has been opened during a repair.
While bleeding, do not use excessive force pushing the pedal down...that can damage the master cylinder. Always close the valve you are bleeding before taking pressure off the pedal.
It is a good idea to remove the fluid from the master cylinder reservoir with a turkey baster etc once a year to get new uncontaminated fluid into the system. No bleeding required to do that.

SOURCE: replace rear brake light

Open up the hatch and look for the screws that hold the tail light assembly to the body. After removing them you can gently pull the whole tail light from the truck. You will seee the sockets that the bulbs are in and they twist like a bottle cap to get to the bulb. Just pull the bulb from the socket and reverse what you did to put it back together.

SOURCE: turn signals on my 2004 jeep don't work what to

If one of your bulbs has blown you will get a faster relay click when you activate the indicators. It sounds as though the relay itself could be sticking / broken.

Of course it could just be a blown fuse, I would check that first before changing relays

SOURCE: bleeding brake system how?


Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

Nov. 94 Grand Cherokee Jeep no back brakes

I bet you still have air back there. If you didn't bleed the system after the master you need to do that. Bench bleeding a master doesn't always work.Also badly out of adjustment rear brakes can act the same way.
