#2 of 67 Brake Light, 1996 Grand Cherokee, HELP!!!!!
Oct 21, 2007 (3:33 pm)
HELP!!! I just spent every penny I had to purchase this 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. After a week of owning it I noticed when I signaled a left turn, the flasher was "FAST", just a left turn, not a right. I finally got around to checking all the lights and noticed that almost all of the front bulbs were burned-out. Yesterday I replaced them and thought I was "good to go". Then I had someone apply the brakes and noticed that the "third" brake light (located on the top of the window) wasn't working. I took everything apart and there weren't any bulbs. I bought new bulbs and when I installed them, they all were lit; this is with the truck NOT running, no lights on. I also noticed that the information center is now telling me that the rear bulbs have failed. When I turn on the lights the "regular" brake lights come on but when I step on the breaks they are suppose to get "brighter". I replaced the bulbs and no luck. I checked all the fuses and everything seems fine. There was a U-Haul light system hooked-up and I assumed that was causing the problem so I removed it, still the 3 rd brake light is constantly on and brake lights only work in the "normal" mode, not the "brighter" mood when I step on the brake pedal. I was guessing it was a brake light switch problem but why wouldn't the brake lights be on "brighter" rather than "normal" ; also why would the 3rd brake light continue to light when the truck is shut-off. I've spent close to $30 on replacement bulbs and honestly don't have the money to have this looked at. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you, Mar

My driver side headlight in my 97 JGC is brighter than the other. I just put new bulbs in and then tried replacing the side not as bright but same thing. Any ideas why one side is brighter than the other?

#9 of 67 License Plate Light not coming on
Dec 23, 2007 (4:58 pm)
I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 214,000+ miles and I've had some problems with it, but overall it has been a good vehicle. The one big problem I have now that is affecting my ability to get it registered is the license plate light will not come on. Auto Zone tested and said there is no power going to the light.
Has anyone experienced problems with this particular light and have any solutions on where to go to find the problem in the wiring?

Im guessing you have to take the headlight cover off right, since the fogging is on the inside of the headlight....or is it on the outside? My '00 JGC has that too, not too bad, but i never really got a close look to see if the fogging up was occurring on the inside or the outside of the headlight cover.

Most of the fogging I've read about happens on the outside of the headlight (just talking in general terms here, not specifically about Jeeps). The outside fogging would include the lens cover for cars that have them.
If you have fogging on the inside, I'd suspect moisture.
