2002 TJ - high mount stop light

I just noticed that the light was not one when braking.

I swapped out the blown bulb with a new one, but the light still doesn't come on? Both brake lights are working fine.

Any ideas?

I recently had to disconnect brake lights to install the light protectors so could that have something to do with my problem now?

Put on a bigger spare tire and get rid of it. Most likely you answered your question about diconnecting your brake lights. Check the contacts inside the rear door.

I suggest you re-read my post before posting a comment that is absolutely useless (and insulting).

Aww, give him a break, all the shiny stuff on his Jeep makes it hard for him to concentrate....



Russ, I'm just teasin' you, don't go getting all riled up! The poor guy is just looking for ideas to check to fix his lights, no need to re state the obvious... he's new, and you are pretty new too, we try to play nice in these parts!

Might look under the pass rear fender....pull the plastic liner thing down and see if the wires are connected to the little metal pads....mine weren't.

X2. What mrcarcrazy said. Check wire connections to each contact in the rear passenger side cavity.

X3.

I had that exact problem before.
The connectors some how came loose from the contact pins up in there behind the wheel well.

Also, make sure those contacts are clean.

do you have any sort of current checker? so you can see if the bulb area is receiving current, start there and work backwards.
