lazyes3 I think that I'm having the same problem with my 2000 TJ. Does anyone have a part # for the "brake light switch"? Any help would be appreciated.

s3nt3nc3d That switch is independent of everything else... it doesn't matter what gear your in, whether your dome lamp is on, headlights are on, horn is honking, etc.

If the switch is bad, your brake lights won't work.

The tail lights will light up when your headlights are on...but they won't brighten when you step on the brake.

Your turn signals should also still work.

Be lucky... when mine went out, my brake lights wouldn't turn off. So I had to monkey crawl under there at 11pm to unhook the stupid switch so it wouldn't drain my battery. lol

Regin Thanks for the responses, guys. One more thing I noticed today before I look at the switch... It seems that the lights also do not come on when parked.

When I replaced the one in my truck, I think it took me longer to get into a position where I could work on it than it did actually swapping it out...

Once in position, it took me about 5 minutes to swap it. But I bet it took me 30 minutes to find a position I could actually work in. ...and I too debated removing the seat. lol

s3nt3nc3d If it's like my truck, you've got a "brake light switch" down under your brake pedal... if you poke your head up underneath and look upward (you're gonna have to be a freaking monkey to get at this angle probably)...you'll probably see a little plastic switch that the shaft of your pedal pushes against as it's depressed. They are pretty cheap to replace if that's what's broken.

Problem with brake lights

I've got an issue with my 2000 wrangler's brake lights and thought I'd pick your brains. Hopefully you guys can help me out.

All three of my brake lights won't come on. The bulbs appear to work, as they come on when I turn my head/tail lights on. I then tried replacing the stop light fuse but that didn't work either. Some searching on the internet mentioned something about it possibly being the turn signal fuse for some reason, but I don't have a problem with them either. It's only the brake lights.

Any advice? I'd rather not take it into the shop if it's something I can fix by myself.

Thanks.
