It could very well be the brake light switch that is behind the brake pedal. It may have broken wires or a shorted switch.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the brake lights are not engaging. I have changed out the brake stop switch, the center brake light bulb was melted and I changed that bulb out and it works when I...

Remove the bulb & use a volt meter to check for power. Harbor Freight has a digital volt meter on sale for right now for $ 3.00. Carefully touch the red probe to the connection in the bottom of the socket & the other to a good ground on the body. Have someone step on the brake, if you have power the problem is the socket ground, the metal connector on the side of the inside of the socket. With a pair of needle nose pliers you should be able to remove the connector to clean it & inspect it for corrosion. If it can't be cleaned to get a proper connection you may check a wrecking yard for a replacement. They can also be purchased at a dealer's parts house.

How do I change the brake bulbs on 99 Nissan Quest

The whole assembly will pop out with a screwdriver (carefully). Then the bulbs can be reached. Just push the whole thing back into the slots when you are done.

My right rear brake light is not working. I replaced both right and left side bulbs but the right one still does not turn on. Is it a wiring problem?

Kinda sorta,you have check for power inside the bulb socket when the brakes are applied.
If you dont have juice there then you will have to find out if the brake light switch is working.
I believe ther is a brake light relay box in the trunk,I dont remember where,but it could be defective.
Listen to this the light assembly on the honda do go bad. the whole light bulb assembly the silver plastic unit,get one from thejunk yard and change the whole thing.Look at it it's easy to do.

1999 jeep grand cherokee brake lights

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I purchased only three months ago. It has already been in the shop three times in a month so I fee like I can help you with your problem. My rear brake light did the same thing and I just had to purchase the whole light socket. It only cost $13.00 from Jeep. I know your jeep is a 99' but the mechanic said that all Grand Cherokees from the last six years or so had the same problem. Changing the light bulb won't work. It will simply burn your bulb out. Simply buy the plastic socket that the bulb snaps in and that should fix your problem. It did for me.
