Joshlhicks84 Last night I put a jumper to the brake switch and my brake lights worked with the headlights off but when I turned the headlights on they did not work.

Joshlhicks84 The brake fuse is good. I checked them all with the exception of the flasher relay. I was thinking it may be bad but I'm not sure it would have anything to do with the break lights.

I agree, start at the source. Check the TAIL fuse and the BRAKE fuse with a multimeter/test light to make sure there is power there at least. Take the test test light and trace it out. Its tedious but not hard.

Check the bulbs as well. The simple stuff first.

A FSM with wiring diagrams and color codes is a huge help and worth every penny.

I have an 88 yj. My power to my brake switch has gone out and I have no lights. I think it's fed from the steering wheel harness. Has anyone had to deal with this before.

My reverse lights work
My blinkers light up but don't flash
My front running lights work when headlight switch is on but no rear running lights
