the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.
You will first have to access the trunk and then access the tailight assembly - possibly by removing the upholstery of the molding (not too difficult). The bulb housing can be removed by rotating approximately 90-degrees counterclockwise and pulling the assembly. Simply pull the bulb straight out and insert the new bulb. Be sure to test it before reassembling the unit. Finally, reverse the steps.
Pretty basic stuff...open the trunk and move the trunk liner material away from the rear of the car to expose wiring for the tail lights...there are 3 light bulbs per side, the backup, brakes and tail lights...just twist the plug where it connects to the lens assembly and the socket will come out...remove the bulb and take it to the auto parts store to make sure you purchase the correct replacement...if your lenses are broken, there are 6 nuts to remove that lets the entire lens assembly be removed and replaced with one from a junk yard, you cannot buy these new anymore...good luck...
You did right so far. Once you have lowered the tailgate and removed the upper and lower 10mm bolts the tail light assembly should be loose and moving a little bit. There are only 2 push-in plastic posts holding it at this point now. Then you have to pull back the assembly firmly, hit on the external side of the assembly with the palm of your hand and it will pop out. DO NOT try to pry with a screwdriver or any other tools.
Disconnect wires connections, replace burned or broken bulbs, make test. If it doesn't work check if the wiring has been affected by the accident.
big problem with jeeps 98 and up should be a safety recall but is not; you need to replace the drivers side tail light assembly with a new one, from jeep or auto parts store if available. used auto parts recycler may have one but your taking a chance, used should be 40 to50
