A relative of mine had the same problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee Limited. The problem was the socket that the light bulb goes in itself tends to burn out. They brought it to a place only to find out they were trying to rip her off because "she needed new tailight assemblies" and would cost $216 I was skeptical, but I took a look myself. I moved the "non-working bulb" from the brake light socket and put it in the reverse light socket. The bulb lit up and found out it was the socket because it seemed blacker and "burnt" compared to the other ones. Went to the dealership and the sockets cost $10. Works fine now!

Check the brake switch under the brake peddle it looks like a little box takes 5 min very easy and cost is very low hope it helps

You need to purchase new back light assemblies. They have a chip in them that goes bad. They are sealed so you can't repair. About $100 each. I did both of mine about 3 months ago.

Does this vehicle have a trailer wiring harness maybe the problem might be tied in with that if not check that your ground has a good clean contact also test the socket with a test light make sure the bulb is really good hope this helps.
