I replaced my rear brake light bulbs on my 2002 Grand Jeep Cherokee. The lights work fine as long as I don't have my head lights on. What could be the problem. I just received a citation because of no...


The brake and turning lights are on a different switch than the tail lights. Check the fuse for the brake light circuit. Check to see if your front turning lights work. My guess is they won't work either.

On 2002 jeep laredo brake lights dont turn on if lights arent on


That does not make any sense. Do the tail lights work? There are supposed to be separate filaments for brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals. In particular the center brake light should not be possible to be confused with tail lights or signals. Does it come on? If not, then you probably have no brake lights at all, and that is probably because of the bad fuse or the switch on the brake pedal for the brake lights.
If there is some sort of cross over between tail light and brake lights, that is usually from a bad light socket ground; which results in current backing up from one system to another. But then each is usually only half brightness.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not working properly. With lights off Driver side no brake light when brake is engaged. With lights on and all rear lights on, engage brake - no driver brake light...


The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

2002 jeep grand cherokee. Rear left brake light isnt working


The problem with your tail light is the housing is broken where the socket goes in. If you pull that socket out and look you will see the metal tap will be pushed down and the plastic around that will be broke. Easy fix is to replace the lens but you can get under the metal tap with a small flat tip screw driver and pull up on it very lightly and it should work for awhile.

Hope this helps

Rear lights


Try removing the the bulbs from the left tail light and cleaning sockets and bulb bases (or replace them).
It sounds like a contact problem which may be exacerbated by having the tail light on when the brake light attempts to light.
There are probably also quick disconnects plugged onto the light fixtures that might be corroded but those are not as easy to clean.
