Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
If your brake light goes out when your headlights are on here is your fix:
1. remove taillight assembly (two screws hold it in place
2. Remove light bulb and socket from assembly (this will be the top bulb) put it to the side
3. Inside this hole on the rim you will see three silver metal contacts, two side by side and one by itself.
4. With a small screwdriver or a small pointed tool, gently pry up the contact which is by itself, all you are wanting to do is bend it upwards slightly.
Over the course of time this conact succumbs to the heat of the bulb and settles into the plastic. All you are doing now is making a better contact between the metal and the bulb.
