The brake lights on my 1989 Jeep Wrangler do not work when the brake is pressed. The fuse and the bulbs are good. The lights work when the hazards are flashing but will not work when the brake is pressed.

The brake switch under the pedal is malfunctioned internally and getting short causing this problem.Get the brake switch replaced. make sure your brake light switch is working properly . if so, check for power at your light sockets. if there is no power , possibility of either a broken or corroded wire or a loose ground. If you look at your brake pedal, there's a switch that closes a circuit, and gives power to your brake lights. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query.

I have a 2003 Jeep wrangler. All three brake lights don't work. The lights are fine because the tail lights work. I've replaced the pressure switch at the pedal with no results. Dan.


just because the tail lights work doesn't necessarily mean the bulbs are good, many brake/tail lights have multiple filaments in them, you can usually remove a bulb and tell with your naked eye if a filament has failed. Another possibility is a fuse. Are you getting power in and out of that brake light switch?

Both of my brake lights are not working on my 99 jeep wrangler,but my third light is,my hazards are working as well so i know it isn't the bulbs,what should i do,if it is a fuse where can i find the fuse...


actually it may still be the bulbs since they use dual filament remove the bulb and look at the filaments see if any of them look bad them tap the bulb with your finger nail see it any of the filaments vibrate if they do replace the bulb
