Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Rear parking light goes out when brake pedal depressed

Brake light also does not come on; only happens when driving at night. In other words other brake lights do come on (center and right hand) also side marker on front does not light; right side marker and directional alternate flashing with each other. Could it be the left hand front light being burned out causes all this????

This is a well known problem on this jeep. You will have to bend the small copper tabs on the respective light socket out a bit to restore its electrical connection. Sometimes this isn´t enough and you will have to bend the copper contact on the light assy itself out a bit.

You probably have a poor earth on a rear light cluster, if you can find the earth wire ( often goes to the body close to the lamp) that will be the problem and it will need cleaning or a new terminal putting on.

SOURCE: Left turn signal stops flashing when brake pedal is depressed.

there is a ground problem, most likely in the tail unit itself, but a ground problem is hard to find and easy to fix. reground the system, the turning unit, and the problem should stop. About the hazards, I don't know...... some times in older cars, that is the way it works. because the brake and hazard element in the bulb is the same and the old cars used a break in the power, but the new cars use a break in the ground. any way, chase the ground down first, it is usually the cause.

No brake lights and Gearshift won't come out of park


That sounds like a defective brake light switch, located
by the brake pedal. If you normally would have to depress the
brake pedal to shift out of park, the problem lies in the vicinity
of the brake light/pedal switch.

99 mercedes-bens c-230 wont shift out of drive


There is a safety device that operates off of the brake pedal that maybe is not working properly. When shifting transmission depress brake pedal. Try this, depress brake pedal as far as it goes, turn key to off position as if you are goig to remove, while pressing on brake try shifting transmission to park. I hope this helps.

I cant shift out of park what is wrong ?


Make sure your foot is on the brake. If so it could be the shift interlock switch.

The gear is getting stuck... i press on brakes and when car is in park it is hard to put on reverse.. the car runs great...


In all probability the brake sensor on the pedal is starting to work erratically. This sensor sends a signal to the shifter gate, and the gate will not open unless the brake pedal is depressed. I had it happen to me, and the only solution until i replaced the sensor was to hit the brake over and over until the stop light worked (You can check it while looking at the 3rd stop light in the rear view mirror). If the stop lights work, the shifter gate should allow the shifter to move out of park. This sensor/ switch is located about 3 inches above the brake pedal, and it is easily recognizable by the cable attached to it.

Emergency brake light comes on while driving and goes off if depress regular brake pedal and let up. what's wrong?


it may be that you your brake fluid is low. the only thing that the brake light indicates is when the parking brake is engaged or when the brake fluid is low. but im about 99% sure its gonna be the brake fluid.

1992 toyota camry v6 auto. can't move shifter. car starts and ste


Car must be on and brake pedal depressed to shift. If you have no brake lights then the car doesn't know the pedal is depressed and will not shift out of park. This car has an interlock overide on the shifter console, push it and it will come out of Park. You will need a brake light switch tho.
