Check the fuses as well as the wiring near the tail light.

If all seems good, get a cheap multimeter and check the voltage in the wires that go to the tail light (red probe on one wire and black probe on the other). If you get a reading about 12 Volts (or -12 depending on which wires the black and red are on) the problem is the tail light or bulb itself.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo - One Brake Light

First, I want to say thank you for the info, you saved me money and aggravation. Second it took mea little while to figure out what contact I was looking for. So I would like to provide a little more detail to make it easier for others in the future.
This is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on(2000 Jeep Cherokee Larado).
1) The cause of the problem is heat from the bulb.
2) Remove the light assembly as if you were going to change a bulb.
3) Turn the socket and remove it from the taillight assembly and set it aside(check to be sure your bulb is not burnt out).
4) Look at the opening, you will see 3 flat chrome colored contacts on the assembly.
5) Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".
6) If you look closely you will notice the plastic around the ground contact has shrunk a little bit, this caused the contact to pull away from the socket, causing the problem.
7) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.
8) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.
9) You should be in good to go!
10) Tools: Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.
11) Time : 5 minutes per light

SOURCE: 2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee Laredo both brake lights

try replacing the sockets in the tailights/brake lights. worked for me. $10 each. i had to replace all of mine because just replacing the brake sockets didn't solve the problem on the right side. you can test it by exchanging tail light for brake light socket and if that works you know it is the socket

If all lights work properly and tail lights( also called as turn signal lights) not working then, it can be issue with fuse.The fuse is shorted, blown and needs to be replaced.---------- Click this link below to see fuse diagram :--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/08/fuse-box-diagram-for-2004-jeep-grand.html------------- But if fuses checked out ok, then get the wires checked for tail lights to bulb, there should be voltage, if the voltage is not there then its the problem with connection.Check the connections for ground.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

On my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the passenger side brake light comes on but the tail light does not come on when the lights are on. It's the same bulb. Any suggestions?


  • First have you tried a new bulb? That the first recommendation. It's cheap, easy to replace, and narrows things down a bit.

  • Sometimes in the bulb socket one of the three terminals in the bulb socket gets a little bent and has to be bent back out so it makes contact otherwise the signal of braking will not reach the filament and the regular tail light remains no matter what.

  • Should you inspect / try that tip and this problem remains then you may need to replace that one socket. Make sure all continuity and grounds test out first. That's about all there is to that.


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.

Tail lights 99 jeep grand cherroke limited


have you checked the bulb sockets to see if they are burnt or corroded sometime i see that the plastic melts around the contacts where the socket twists into the housing. if your lucky you might get away with replacing just the socket for the brake/running light bulb. but if it is too melted your most likely going to need a new housing

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
